Getting the most out of your brushing

Lifehacking is all about getting the most out of your routine, and making sure the objects you use every day are giving you the most benefit. That means it’s important to choose a toothbrush that gives you the maximum effect for your brushing time to achieve better oral health.


Don’t let oral health problems waste your time

Oral health problems can involve additional trips to the dentist if left to get worse on their own. That’s why preventing plaque and gingivitis from ever becoming a problem in the first place will save you time. All you need to do is brush for two minutes twice a day, floss once a day, and your oral health will never become an issue to begin with.


Treating oral health problems efficiently

If you have plaque or gingivitis, an electric toothbrush is an excellent way to swiftly treat the problem. Longer, more frequent brushing for two weeks should reverse both issues if caught early enough. Daily flossing and eating a low-sugar, low-starch diet will also help.

How can Philips Sonicare help?


Philips Sonicare makes 31,000 brush strokes per minute, compared with a manual toothbrush, which moves at around 300 brush strokes per minute. That means that two minutes spent brushing with a Philips Sonicare is equivalent to about a month spent using a manual toothbrush. It's a great way to make sure you're getting the most out of you brushing time.
