ok, the day is today... Been using Braun "vibrating" type toothbrush (pulsating is probably a less "vulgar" word) but today saw this Ionic Toothbrush in Watson with a catchy sales & marketing kit that literally shouts
"No toothpaste needed"
"More efficient plaque control"
"Reduces bad breath"
... if I remembered correctly, which I think I did.
How does an ionic toothbrush work?
Dental plaque is bonded to teeth by positive ions. Negative ions flow from the ionic toothbrush breaks this bonding mechanism between teeth and plaque for efficient cleaning and removing.
Ionic toothbrush is clinically proven by studies at universities in the USA and Japan to remove plaque up to 48% more effectively than ordinary manual toothbrushing.
Battery is build-in for discharging negative ions and will last more than 1 year under normal use. I believe battery is non-replaceable while Ionic brush head is.
My question is... how can my ionic toothbrush control/reduce bad breath when you just use it normally but without toothpaste???
Image is very important to me, so I must ensure I have no bad breath from using a Ionic Toothbrush
Any dental specialist here?
