If you have known me for any significant amount of time, you’ve probably heard the story about me getting my first cavity when I was 26. I cried... a lot. My 6-year-old niece made fun of me. I clung to the fact that it was under old sealants. Nothing I could do. This happens 2 more times. Freaking sealants. Then last year it happens. Sigh. My first real cavity. I was heartbroken and let me tell you. I see why kids are afraid of the dentist, yikes. Not. Fun. So I’ve been flossing and brushing machine to avoid all possible interactions with the dentist drill. So naturally, when I had the opportunity to partner with Smile Brilliant to test out their new electric toothbrush, I was sooo on board.
I've had an electric toothbrush since college. Yes, the same one. I thought it was doing alright, but I guess somewhere in the last -ahem- 15 years, it lost its oomph. The second I turned on my cariPRO I was so surprised by it’s power that it popped out of my mouth and sprayed my mirror with spit. Gross, but true.
So let’s get down to the details, this puppy has 5 separate cleaning modes:
Clean: The “normal” cleaning mode, if you will. Perfect for your daily cleaning.
Whitening: [my favorite] This has some more power to remove stains and give superior cleaning. I swear when I use it, my teeth feel like I’ve just left the dentist.
Massage: In need of gum stimulations? You heard me, use the massage along with a cleaning mode for a gentle massage.
Gum Care: Use for cleaning along your gum line. I have been loving this because since having kids my gums are so sensitive, thanks hormones, but this gentle cleaning is awesome in combination with a cleaning mode.
Sensitive: Self explanatory, if you’ve got extra sensitive teeth and gums, this is your mode.
I love that the cariPRO is waterproof and doesn’t have any large seams for water to get stuck in. My old electric toothbrush had multiple spots where water could collect and turn into quite a science experiment, so I am loving the design.
