Sonicare toothbrushes work by vibrating once they are turned on so that the bristles will move back and forth to loosen debris. Use the timer function on a Sonicare toothbrush with information from a licensed dental assistant in this free video on dental care and electric toothbrushes.
So, have you ever wondered on how a Sonicare toothbrush works? Well, my name is Michelle, and I'm a dental assistant with Solutionz, and we're going to talk today about exactly how the Sonicare toothbrush works. So, let's take a look at the toothbrush that we have over here. Now, with this Sonicare toothbrush this is a great toothbrush because you do not need to have batteries for this. You can actually, it has a charger with it. Also too, there's different; if you look on the back part it has the on button, and then it has another button that's a timer, so you can actually set a timer with this toothbrush for I think option for this is every for three minutes or even five minutes it has different settings. So, what's great about the Sonicare toothbrush is once when you turn it on it starts the vibration pro process of the bristles moving back and forth in a high vibration. And what the bristles actually do is once when you apply it onto your teeth it actually loosens the debris that might be settled on your teeth, so it really vibrates the debris off. And then, with brushing in a circular motion like you normally would it's going to flush out the debris in between your teeth and on your teeth. So, with this toothbrush then once when you can turn it, the same button you can use to turn it on and off, and then the button below will actually make set it on a different timer for you. And once again, once when you, once when you're finished using your Sonicare toothbrush you always want to make sure that you rinse off the bristles, clean it really good. And then, you would just place it back on the charger, so therefore it can continues to charge. You can actually tell here with the green light down at the bottom it's actually charging. So, and this is a sensor charger so when it's off the charger it's not lit, and then when you put it on that's when it lights up, so that's when you know that it's charging. But once again, my name is Michelle, and I'm a dental assistant with Solutionz, and I just explained to you on how a Sonicare toothbrush works.
