What Oral-B Toothbrush Is Compatible?
Oral-B Replacement Brush Heads, Floss Action or Precision Clean fit all Oral-B electric toothbrush handles, so it's easy and convenient for you to find a perfect fit with your current Oral-B toothbrush.
What's Floss Action?
Oral-B Replacement Brush Heads, Floss Action or Precision Clean provide floss action with micro-pulse bristles that give your teeth a floss-like clean. The micropulse design of the bristles allows them to reach areas in between your teeth and gums to give your teeth a clean similar to if you had used a line of floss. However, even brushing your teeth with an Oral-B toothbrush with floss-action bristles does not replace the need to floss.
The Importance of Flossing
Although Oral-B brush heads provide a deep clean and 100% more plaque removal than a manual toothbrush, flossing is still a very important aspect of your oral health and hygiene. Nothing can remove plaque and clean in between teeth as well as dental floss, which reaches those difficult areas and removes the plaque to protect you from gum disease and tooth decay. Interdental flossing has been proven time and again to be essential in keeping your gums and teeth healthy by removing debris that contributes to plaque buildup.
Over 500 bacterial species are found in plaque, some good and some bad. Combined with food debris, water and other debris, plaque buildup in between teeth and gums will contribute to teeth and gum-related diseases. Talk to your dentist about developing a healthy interdental cleaning technique. Whether it's floss or another type of interdental cleaner, it's important to develop a healthy habit of cleaning between your teeth. Meanwhile, using Oral-B brush heads will certainly make it easier to floss, and you'll have less plaque you need to remove while flossing because of the Oral-B toothbrush head's floss-action technology.
