How Do Oral-B Toothbrushes with Bristle Protection Work?
Oral-B toothbrushes with Bristle Protection use Silver Ion-based Bacteria Guard Technology, which inhibits the growth of new bacteria on the bristles of your toothbrush. Ionized silver reacts with bacteria that land on the bristles, damaging components needed for growth. Bacteria Guard Technology is currently in the following brushes:
- CrossAction Power Refill
- FlossAction Power Refill
- Precision Clean Power Refill
In all brushes, silver ion is added to the polymers that make the bristles, which means the silver ion is fully integrated. And as the bristles are used and wear down, more silver ions are exposed for continued protection.
How Should You Use Oral-B Toothbrushes with Bristle Protection?
You can use your Oral-B toothbrushes with Bristle Protection the exact same way as you use your current brush. Because the silver ion is part of the bristles, there aren’t any special instructions for how you use it.
