Brushing your teeth may seem like such a simple task. We all brush our teeth at least once a day – well, the majority of people do. Well, for me it is actually quite a chore and not easy to do. It was something that I took for granted before I became bedridden. I now can’t stand long enough at the sink to even brush my teeth properly with a manual toothbrush. So when I was offered the chance to try CariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush from Smile Brilliant, I just had to say yes!
Having Diabetes Type 2 also means I need to take really good care of my oral health, as it’s all too easy to get plaque buildup and tooth decay. I also suffer from extreme dry mouth due to some of the meds I take; which again puts me at high risk for tooth decay. So I knew that I needed to be able to brush my teeth really well and at least twice a day. It doesn’t sound like much at all, does it? Though it actually was for me.
Since using the CariPRO Electric Toothbrush it has made my life a lot easier and I am able to take proper care of my teeth. I know after brushing with the CariPRO that my teeth are clean and plaque free.
One of the things I really love about this toothbrush is that it has a tongue scraper on the other side of the brush head. Suffering from extreme dry mouth, I like to make sure my tongue is really nice and clean because it gets REALLY dry – sometimes I don’t even have enough saliva in my mouth to even be able to swallow easily.
The CariPRO has a lot of fantastic features, so for those interested in all the tech details of the brush, here they are:
- 40,000 vibrations / minute dynamic cleaning action
- 5 brush modes (clean, white, massage, gum care, sensitive)
- 30-day battery life (on a full charge)
- Ergonomic slim design with graphite grey soft-touch grip
- Waterproof design is safe for shower or bath
- Auto-interval smart timer for even & timed brushing
- Wireless charging dock
As you can see, a full charge will last for around 30 days, which is great. The auto-interval smart timer is another feature that I love. It means I don’t spend too little time in one area to another as I know exactly when to move to the next part of my mouth.
Some days I can have difficulty gripping items so it’s important that the toothbrush is comfortable to hold, which it is. It has a soft touch grip, so it’s really easy to hold, even when my hands are quite bad.
Being waterproof means that I don’t have always have to stand at the bathroom sink – this was a HUGE plus. I can sit on my shower chair whilst having a shower and brush my teeth. This is just fantastic for me to be able to do. I know these all sound like really easy things but for someone with disabilities and chronic illnesses they are actually BIG things to get done, especially on really bad days.
There are five different settings on the CariPro Electric Toothbrush:-
- CLEAN: Optimal cleaning results
- WHITE: High-speed polishing
- MASSAGE: Gentle stimulation
- GUM CARE: Timed pulse gum & gumline health
- SENSITIVE: Ideal for sensitive teeth
When I initially started using it my teeth were very sensitive. So I used the Sensitive setting, to begin with, along with the gum care one. As my gums became healthier, I was able to then use the Clean setting and then the White. I have to admit I don’t really use the massage setting. It goes to show though how much healthier my teeth and gums have become whilst using the CariPRO. They are far less sensitive and I can physically see that my gums aren’t as receded as they were. A definite marked improvement. I can say that this toothbrush makes me feel like I’ve been to the dentist every day for a scale and polish!
What Did The CariPRO Electric Toothbrush Do For Me?
Not only are my teeth and gums healthier but it has also made me feel a lot better too. Not like my teeth were terrible or anything but I just feel so much better about my dental hygiene and being able to take proper care of my teeth. Oh, did I mention that they are also a lot whiter too? Having nice white teeth really makes me feel a lot more confident when I smile. It’s cut down the stress on whether I am doing a good enough job brushing my teeth. Whilst it’s not a drastic difference, the improvement is very visible to me.
