Electric Toothbrush Kit- Fluoride
YOUR SMILE | OUR PLANET
We believe there is no reason to sacrifice results for sustainability, and etee’s Electric Toothbrush with replaceable bamboo heads is no exception. Paired with our stainless steel floss jar, waxed silk dental floss and 1 month supply of fluoride chewpaste, this kit is one you won't want to miss!
I've been using bamboo tooth brushes for a few years in an attempt to reduce my plastic waste. My dental hygienist recommended I switch to an electric toothbrush to help reduce coffee and tea staining, but I didn't want to invest in a brand that would make me go back to buying plastic disposable brushes. Thankful I found this option to support environmentally friendly dental hygiene!
Battery life so far seems impressive. I've been using this toothbrush for a couple weeks now on a single charge, and the indicator light is still green (I believe it turns yellow when it's starting to lose energy). I have sensitive teeth, and the vibrations are gentle enough on my teeth while being powerful enough to clean to a smooth polish. I'm not sure the different vibrational pulse modes clean any differently (if I want more of a whitening polish, I dip my toothbrush in a little baking soda to combine with my toothpaste, and that does the trick), but I enjoy the sensory experience of the different modes. My teeth feel as clean as right after a professional dental cleaning.
The one downside is that the electric toothbrush is rather noisy. My spouse joked that the first couple nights I used it, he heard the sound from our living room and was baffled trying to figure out if I'd left the kitchen faucet running or if a random home appliance was malfunctioning and buzzing. I know the sound can't be helped because of the way the brush head vibrates; it was more amusing than anything for us.
The vibration does pause every 30 seconds to indicate when to move to a different quadrant, which is a helpful reminder so I'm not spending too much time brushing one area and missing another. Tooth rush automatically turns off after two minutes.
I won't be able to use the toothpaste tablets that came with this kit because they contain sugar alcohols that I'm sensitive to, but I'll pass those along to a friend who can use them. I do like the biodegradable floss and refillable metal container! I have narrow gaps between my teeth and am use to using the flat tape style floss, so I was worried the thicker strands would get stuck between my teeth. That hasn't really been an issue, and I feel better knowing this floss won't be more plastic added to my household waste. If y'all come out with an eco-friendly, refillable flossing pick to pair with this floss, I'd buy it! I've seen other companies make them in plastic, but I'd rather buy one made of bamboo or metal.
I bought the electric toothbrush because it is eco-friendly. I’m raving about it because it really works!!! Love the different settings! My mouth feels so fresh and clean and healthy. I know the dentist is going to notice a difference in my gums. I highly recommend this product!!
