Oral B Toothbrush Replacement Heads

Admit it, we’re all guilty- we buy that electric toothbrush in the shop, promised a million and one cleaning actions, and then we just keep on using that same device over and over.

After a good few months, there’s no correlating limp and soggy offering in your bathroom with the super-duper whitening cross-action power unit you bought.

That’s why today we are focussing on Oral B’s toothbrush replacement heads- because trust us, you do need to replace that head over time, no matter how good the toothbrush.

Why Would I need Oral B Toothbrush Replacement Heads?

Over time, the delicate bristles and other cleaning features on even the best electric toothbrush begin to wear down. In order to maximize the clean [and the cavity prevention,] you receive from your toothbrush, it’s imperative you keep the heads in pristine working order- and swap them out regularly when necessary.Check more on toothbrushes here.

Oral B makes all of their heads interchangeable with their bodies/wands, so it’s simple enough to change styles should you wish to try a new head.


What else can I do to ensure I always get the best clean?

There are few things you can do before swapping to an Oral B toothbrush replacement head, and the most important of these is keeping the head of your existing brush sterile.

Everyone has their own preferred method for this, but a gentle clean under the tap regularly will ensure that day-to-day grit and food particles that otherwise would become stuck in the bristles are swiftly removed.

In addition, you should get in the habit of leaving the bristles [don’t soak the rest of the mechanical head, prop that out of the water] in a sterilizing solution. If you prefer home-grown remedies, salt water or vinegar will sterilize well too. This will help keep the bristles clean, particle free and disinfected.

You should also learn the correct brushing style for your electric toothbrush. Some are specially designed for up and down movement, where others need the user to rotate the head in soft circles.

Using the correct brushing style will maximize the life of the head as well as the results you get. Don’t press too hard or you could damage both the bristles and your gums/teeth.

    Hi Roseline!

    Great post. To be candid I didn’t know there were replacement heads specially designed for those who wear braces. Neither I nor my spouse wears them, but we suspect our orthodontist is going to prescribe braces to our four-year old daughter. I usually buy standard replacement heads for my 16-year old niece who wears braces. I guess I learned something new today.

    I’m used to the traditional brush, but I’ve been looking into getting an electric. I’ve heard that they can get your teeth much cleaner than a manual.
    As far as cleaning the electric brush, if someone were to use vinegar, would that leave an aftertaste one the brush? What would be your first choice for a brush cleaner?

    • Roseline says:

      Hello Paul,electric toothbrushes,just like manual toothbrushes are easy to clean.If you chose to clean with Vinegar as you do,how about running warm water to rinse after you`ve used vinegar to remove the after taste.
