I am delighted to be one of twenty bloggers featured in Arm & Hammerâ€™s Switch & Save Challenge. During the next five months, Iâ€™ll be testing several Arm & Hammer products and sharing my experiences with you.
Jenn, the hygienist at my dentist’s office, has been telling me for years that I need a different toothbrush.
I don’t have terrific teeth to begin with. The enamel is soft, and I’m prone to cavities. Apparently, using a manual toothbrush doesn’t help matters at all.
I guess you really didn’t need to know that.
Anyway, Jenn keeps telling me that a battery-powered toothbrush would clean my teeth much better – removing more of the plaque – than an old fashioned one, but I’ve hesitated because they are so expensive.
Jenn and I both approve of the Arm & Hammer Spinbrush ProClean.
The Spinbrush ProClean only costs about $9 (less when you use a coupon). It’s an even better deal when you consider that the brush head and batteries are removable, so you can replace only the parts that wear out. You won’t need to buy a whole new unit several times a year.
According to its website, the Spinbrush ProClean uses dual action technology to clean your teeth, meaning that there are a combination of spinning bristles and ones that move back and forth. All that action removes up to 70% more plaque than an old-fashioned toothbrush.
I’ve been using my new Spinbrush for two weeks now. Honestly, my teeth feel the same clean as before, but I know that the Spinbrush is doing a better job. Instead of manually moving my toothbrush up and down, I just move the Spinbrush around my mouth. Because the bristles move quickly and in multiple directions, they reach more spaces than my old fashioned toothbrush can.
It’s also easier to brush for two minutes since I’m not actually doing the brushing.
In the days immediately following my toothbrush switch, I noticed that my gums were bleeding when I rinsed. Apparently, I haven’t been doing a great job of massaging my gums with my old manual toothbrush – something else that Jenn told me to do. I’m doing a much better job with the Spinbrush of getting down to my gums and getting them nice and clean, too, because the bleeding has stopped.
With lots of options, including a GloBrush that changes color when you’ve brushed for 2 minutes, a whitening brush, and decorated options for kids, the Arm & Hammer Spinbrush series has something for everybody.
