If you wish to take good care of your teeth, it is crucial to use superior dental products such as Oral-B electric toothbrush. Here are some tips for Oral-B electric brush maintenance:
Replace your Oral-B® electric toothbrush brush head every three months, or when the blue Indicator® bristles fade halfway to white, or earlier if you notice fraying. Simply pull the old brush head off your handle at a straight angle, and snap on a new brush head in the same manner.
If this is your first time using the Oral-B® electric toothbrush, you should fully charge the battery before using, which can take up to 16 hours.
Once your handle is fully charged, continue using your electric toothbrush until no charge is left. Then, fully charge it again instead of charging between each use. This will help your battery perform at its best longer.
Cleaning toothbrush is important but also regularly clean your charger with a damp cloth after unplugging it.
