The Sonic Toothbrush: A Great Way to Improve Your Oral Health

How was your last dental visit? Did your dental hygienist say you need to brush better?

If you're like most of us, you've been brushing your teeth with a manual toothbrush since before you can remember. When your hygienist suggests you could be doing a better job, you might find it very difficult to change. Even with the best intentions, your brain directs your hand to do what it has done thousands of times. You go back, unconsciously, to your old ways.

What if you could switch to a sonic electric toothbrush and improve your brushing by almost 100%?

The Waterpik® Sensonic® Professional Plus Toothbrush has been shown to be 99% more effective at removing plaque than a manual toothbrush.1 Its advanced brush-head design targets hard-to-reach areas between the teeth. And its two-minute brushing timer with 30-second interval pacer keeps you brushing longer for maximum plaque removal.

Why choose Sensonic® over other sonic electric toothbrushes?

With a bristle speed 25% faster than the Sonicare® Flexcare, the Sensonic® has been shown to be significantly more effective at improving oral health than the Sonicare® Flexcare. The Sensonic® is also up to 29% better at removing plaque, 20% better at reducing gingivitis, and 26% better at reducing bleeding.

Would you like to improve you oral health even more? Brushing is not enough!

If you hate flossing, an easier alternative is to add the Waterpik® Water Flosser to your brushing routine. A regimen of the Sensonic® Professional Plus Toothbrush and the Waterpik® Water Flosser (now available together in our new Waterpik® Complete Care product) has been found to be up to 70% more effective than Sonicare® Flexcare and up to 159% more effective than a manual toothbrush.1

For better oral health, switch to the Waterpik® Sensonic® Professional Plus toothbrush. To make your oral health even better, add the Waterpik® Water Flosser or choose Waterpik® Complete Care for a convenient combined solution.
