Today we will be comparing the Oral-B Pro Health toothbrush vs. the Mouthwatchers Anti-Bacterial Toothbrush with Flossing Bristles. Upon first glance the Oral-B Pro Health looks fancy… Multi-colored, angled bristles, stiff handle, different length bristles; but Bristles the allure stops there.
The Oral-B webpage claims that the CrissCross® bristles; at a 16-degree angle, eliminate 99% of plaque. The Power Tip® bristles reach hard to clean places. While no data is available on their website supporting this claim, we looked deeper into the brush itself.
All the bristles are rough; no softness to them. While the 16-degree angle may look enticing, it does not appear to “reach” in-between the teeth. Being at an angle would cause the bristles to push further away as they moved over the teeth. The bristles themselves are much thicker than the Mouthwatchers bristles; which are 1/100th the diameter of a human hair.
The Power Tip® bristles are abrasive and would probably cause discomfort on the gum-line. While this product does not claim to have Flossing bristles or floss tip bristles, it does imply that it reaches 99% of the plaque in your mouth and can reach the hard to reach places.
Based on the angle of the bristles, the stiffness and thickness; the toothbrush itself does not support that.
The Mouthwatchers Anti-Bacterial toothbrush with Flossing Bristles however, has the data to support its claims. The Flossing Bristles reach deep between your teeth as you brush, breaking away more plaque and food between your teeth.
Mouthwatchers toothbrushes are also impregnated with nano-silver. Silver has been used for hundreds of years as a medical property to reduce bacterial and promote healing. With the Nano-Silver impregnated bristles, Mouthwatchers Toothbrushes eliminate 99.9% of bacteria that grows on toothbrushes.
