E-commerce platform puts its money where our mouths are after launching high-quality, low-cost electric toothbrush
Online PR News – 12-October-2018 – Singapore – In recognition of National Dental Hygiene Month, ECoinmerce, who just introduced their feature-packed GZH Electric Toothbrush, offers five ways to maintain healthy teeth and gums.
1. It's not how hard you brush - it's how long
Firmer may be better when it comes to a deep tissue massage, but not so much with your teeth. In fact, brushing too hard may lead to receding gums and enamel wear. Apply gentle, consistent pressure, covering each tooth surface and surrounding gum areas completely. A total mouth cleaning should take about two minutes.
2. Take your time to do it right
Like many things in life, there are no shortcuts when it comes to maintaining your teeth. And while it's tempting to rush through this twice-daily task, you want to plan on spending 30 seconds in each of the four quadrants of your mouth - outside upper, inside upper, outside lower and inside lower - focusing on both teeth and gums.
3. It's all in the technique
According to the American Dental Association, you should place your brush at a 45-degree angle to your gums and then gently move it back and forth in short strokes to clean the outer, inner and chewing surfaces. For the inside surfaces of the front teeth, use up-and-down strokes with the brush tilted vertically.
4. Change your brush (or brush heads) regularly
If you replace your toothbrush as often as you do your smoke detector batteries, you're continually re-introducing bacteria back into your mouth - undermining all the positive benefits of brushing and leading to tooth decay. Change your brush head or brush once a month so bristles remain sanitary, firm and can clean teeth effectively and thoroughly.
5. It's not enough to just brush your teeth
Flossing is critical for removing trapped food between teeth that your toothbrush can't reach, which can lead to decay and potential periodontal issues. While you're at it, make sure to brush your tongue - either with a toothbrush or special device for that purpose - to keep breath fresh and remove nasty bacteria.
Offering the equivalent of two months of manual brush strokes in just two minutes, ECoinmerce's cutting-edge GZH Electric Toothbrush is priced at $14.99, almost 70 percent less than those of other leading brands.
With five cleaning modes - Clean, Refresh, Whiten Gum Care and Sensitive - for tailored dental care, the waterproof brush features a two-minute timer to let users know when the total recommended brushing time is up, including 30-second reminders to alert them when to switch brushing zones. Inexpensive replaceable toothbrush heads offer added peace of mind with indicator brushes that advise when it's time to change brush heads.
