Tips On Keeping Your Brush Heads Sparkling Clean

Changing your brush head every 3 months is important to your overall oral health. But have you thought of how extremely important cleaning your brush heads while using them is. Here are some tips on making sure that you’ll get the best clean every time you brush.

How To Clean Your Brush Head

Vinegar Solution

Wipe the brush head with a dry cloth to remove any dirt that might be siting on it.

Make a vinegar solution by mixing ½ cup of water, 2 teaspoons of baking soda and 2 tablespoons white vinegar in a cup. After creating the solution, be sure to submerge the brush head into the solution for 30 minutes. Please check and pay attention to the time to avoid the bristles coming apart.

Once the 30 minutes are up, rinse and dry the brush head with a cloth.

This solution allows for the brush heads to be free of gunk, mold, and any living bacteria.

If you want a faster method, check out the boiling water method.

Boiling Water Method

Wipe the brush head with a dry cloth to remove any dirt that might be siting on it.

To clean brush heads please bring water to boil. Dip your toothbrush or the brush head into boiling water for 5 to 10 seconds, it will effectively clean the bristles. This is an important method to use for removal of bacteria from illnesses. Boiling your toothbrush will help you get better faster.

Tooth Fairy Traditions – what does the molar myth look like around the world?

We shape our daily routine around them, we clean them, floss them, chew with them and check them for lipstick and food bits, tear open a bag with them when nobody’s looking. Our teeth are valuable to us, both in how they look and how we use them. It’s no wonder a tooth fairy would pay big bucks for them.

Throughout human history and across cultures, some interesting traditions have cropped up to accommodate the superstitions and celebrations surrounding the loss of baby teeth and the new gap for big-girl-and-boy teeth.

The United States & Canada

Let’s start with the enigmatic fairy. Who is she and where did she come from? And is she a ‘she’ after all?

The Tooth Fairy appeared in earliest written records of Norse in Northern Europe (almost 900 years ago), rewarding children when they lost their first tooth. Over the years, her payment, much like the number of presents Santa leaves, has increased but depends greatly on the country, family economic status and the average their friends receive. The fairy could perhaps use a business course.

 

Cha-ching Children! How much is she paying this year?

On average in the US, the tooth hoarder slips an average of $5.70 under your child’s pillow for the first tooth. After that, she leaves $4.13 per tooth on average. Bulk price, makes sense. Her price is in a slight slump in 2018, dropping 2 pennies from last year’s averages.

Canada went all out in embracing this tradition, and our fairy friend has her own money now. The Royal Canadian Mint began selling Tooth Fairy Quarters in 2011. After reading this, they’ll see they need to update those to Tooth Fairy dollars – quarters aren’t cutting it anymore. As you can see below, the fairy has two very different looks, but the Canadians are not the only ones who haven’t settled on what she looks like.

Wherever you look, there are fewer consistent descriptions of the Tooth Fairy than of Santa or the Easter Bunny. According to surveyed fairy customers, 74 percent thought she was female, 12 percent thought it was genderless, and 8 percent thought that he or she could be either male or female.

Spain, Latin America, and other parts of Europe

The Ratoncito Pérez (Pérez Mouse for the English speaking) is celebrated in Spanish-speakingcountries. Endearingly nicknamed Raton Pérez, the mouse will leave a gift, not always money, for the lucky child who just lost their tooth. Sometimes Mr. Pérez, in his great journey for the treasure, is deemed thirsty and so the tooth is left in a glass of water, which he drinks before scuttling off with the tooth. In many cultures, mice and rodents are admired for their strong ever-growing teeth, and Spanish and Hispanic cultures are not alone in wanting to associate these lucky creatures with their children’s teeth.

In Italy, we can find Topolino, also a mouse, who undertakes the Tooth Fairy’s normal tasks, and similarly in France la petite souris, ‘the little mouse’, purchases these toothy treasures. In parts of Scotland, the traditions fused and we can hear of a white fairy rat who buys the teeth with coins.

India, China, Japan, Korea and Vietnam

In some Asian countries, the child who lost their teeth throws it onto the roof if the tooth fell from the lower jaw, or if it came from the upper jaw they will throw it underneath the floor or home.While tossing their tooth, the child yells, asking for the tooth to be replaced with the tooth of a mouse (That’s right, we have not finished with the mice. The tooth fairy is feeling a little outnumbered right now.) This harkens back to how rodent teeth grow for the entire creature’s life and the gesture symbolizes health, strength, and longevity. In India, the child sometimes buries their teeth underground by a big tree.

The Japanese have finessed this tradition and throw their teeth straight up or down depending on where the tooth came from. This is in hopes that the tooth will grow straight. Ever the leaders in style.

Iraq, Jordan, Egypt, and Sudan

Similarly to the Asian countries, theatrical throwing is involved in these Middle Eastern countries. This time, the tooth is tossed upward toward Allah, although this tradition may predate Islamic tradition and emerged around when tooth fairies sprung in Europe in the 13th century.

Mongolia

Another animal gets a shot at partaking in the ceremony in Mongolia. Dogs are fed the child’s tooth (they make the tooth palatable with some fat or food). This special treat, woefully unappreciated by the dog, is in hopes that the child’s new tooth will grow to be as strong as the dog’s.

It seems that wherever you look, there’s a bit of tooth envy. While having the strength in your teeth of a mouse or a dog is impressive, there’s nothing quite like looking after the teeth you do have to keep them strong. Brushing is a start, brushing with stylish sonic toothbrushes, even better. The little ones can start this tradition early, and what better way than with the fun and effective Rockee Kids Toothbrush?

Electric Toothbrush Head Replacement: The Ultimate Guide

Toothbrush Head Replacement: The Ultimate Guide

So you have bought yourself your first electric toothbrush. Congratulations, you have made one of the best choices for the future of your oral health, and now it’s time to find out when and how you should replace and maintain the head of your toothbrush.

Simple enough as it may seem at first glance, caring for your electric toothbrush is important, as it is an investment into the future, and is a field where many people fail to adhere to the proper procedures. This leads to diminished results, and it can impact the longevity of your toothbrush. Here is how you can do it just right.

When to replace and how to care for your electric toothbrush

When to replace and how to care for your toothbrush

As a general rule of thumb, a toothbrush needs replacing every three months. However, this rule will vary depending on your toothbrush maintenance and storage habits. A typical toothbrush head can last much longer than three months at a time. However, if you keep it too close to the toilet and don’t put it back into the container after every use, you are shortening its lifespan significantly.
By using a toothbrush sanitizer you can extend the effectiveness of your toothbrush and you will only need to replace it when the bristles have lost their structural integrity. Additionally, be sure to clean your container once a week and keep your toothbrush away from the toilet, as germs travel through the air whenever you flush.

Replacing the head

Replacing the head

When it comes to replacing the head of your electric toothbrush-, you want to make sure you’re doing it right in order to get the most out of your product.
Fortunately, this is a pretty straightforward process. Firstly, be sure you’re not pulling the head straight off the brush, as it won’t detach that way. The electric toothbrush has a unique mechanism, so you will need to hold the base of the toothbrush with one hand, and pull up its head with the other by twisting it counterclockwise.
Take the new head, place it in the same spot, and rotate it clockwise until the notches have slid into place. You should hear a familiar click, acknowledging that the head is in place, locked and secured, and ready for use.

Regular toothbrush care and replacement is essential in maintaining a pearly smile that not only looks good, but is also healthy to boot. Be sure to use these simple tips and you will have no problems maintaining your oral health for years to come.
