My Dental Hygiene Story
My dental routine is pretty standard these days – I brush twice each day, floss as often I remember to do it, and visit the dentist every six months for a check-up. Things weren’t always so simple, though. Growing up, I was in the orthodontist’s chair more often than not and went through years of permanent retainers and half a decade of braces before saying good-bye to metal in my mouth for good.
If I’m being honest, the joy of finally being able stop focusing on my teeth after getting my braces removed made it easy to slip into a routine of taking things… well, a little too easy. After years of splurging on orthodontic procedures, it felt so nice just to buy a $5 toothbrush every couple months. What I neglected to realize, though, is that our health is something we should always invest in – after all, this body is the only one we get! Thankfully, there are affordable investments you can make when it comes to taking care of your teeth and the cariPRO Ultrasonic Electronic Toothbrush from Smile Brilliant has been a game-changer for me!
Their individual package is what I use and it is a great first step to take when prioritizing your dental health! It comes with an electric toothbrush, two brush heads, and a charger. Their electric toothbrushes retail for only about half of what other electric toothbrushes cost but offer the same quality care. They even offer a 60-day trial and a 2-year warranty to make sure your experience with their products helps improve your oral hygiene enough to make you #SmileFearlessly!
One thing your orthodontist probably won’t tell you when encouraging you to drop thousands of dollars on braces is how much more you’ll have to pay after those braces come off to remedy its affect on your gums. Just because your teeth start moving into place once you get braces doesn’t mean your gums move with them. Instead, your gum line can start to recede, which can lead to increased sensitivity as well as infection. That’s why, in addition to the gum grafting procedure I am having done this winter, I was also instructed by my periodontist to start using an electric toothbrush to monitor how hard I brush my teeth. This collaboration with Smile Brilliant couldn’t have come at a better time!
The cariPRO Ultrasonic Electronic Toothbrush actually has five different brush modes to help you customize your brushing experience and one of the settings is specifically called gum care! It has been such an effortless way to stay extra attuned to my gum health. I also tried the other four settings, which are clean, white, massage, and sensitive, and switch my routine periodically to reap the brush’s full benefits. It is so reassuring to know that there is always a setting that will work for my teeth, no matter how my dental needs change!
I was worried that transitioning to an electric toothbrush for the first time would be awkward and inconvenient, but that is far from the case. Two minutes goes by so fast when it’s divided between the four quadrants of your mouth (the brush pauses every thirty seconds to let you know when to switch)! Smile Brilliant’s toothbrushes can last up to thirty days on a full charge and it is quick, easy, and affordable to replace the toothbrush heads when needed. What stands out to me about Smile Brilliant is the ratio of quality to cost; for a price that is affordable even to recent college graduates like myself, you can receive a toothbrush that helps you maintain an exceptionally high standard of oral care.
The best news is that, even though their products are already affordable, Smile Brilliant is letting me give one of you the chance to try their cariPRO Ultrasonic Electronic Toothbrush for free!
