If you want an electric toothbrush that gives your mouth an unbelievably clean and fresh feeling, you should try the IntelliClean Electric Toothbrush System from Sonicare and Crest. You deserve the best and you deserve good dental health. This system is a rechargeable electric sonic toothbrush that actually dispenses Crest toothpaste while you brush! Crest sent me this revolutionary new toothbrush about a month ago and I can only describe it in three words. Wow, wow and wow!

Better Oral Health

The IntelliClean toothpaste dispensing toothbrush is proven to be gentle on teeth and gums, yet highly effective. It has also been proven to reduce gingivitis and promote healthy gums. The IntelliClean System does not replace regular dental check ups, however, your check ups might be much better from using this toothbrush. Before I got the IntelliClean System, I had been using the Sonicare Advance toothbrush and my dental check ups improved greatly. My dental cleanings are much quicker and with less scraping since I started using a Sonicare toothbrush. My dental hygienist even made the comment that she could tell a big difference in my mouth since I started using the Sonicare toothbrush. I don’t think that you can go wrong with any of the Sonicare toothbrushes, but the IntelliClean System is definitely the Cadillac of toothbrushes.

How it Works

The Sonicare toothbrush was invented by a team of periodontists (dentists that specialize in the treatment of gum disease) and bioengineers at the University of Washington. The Sonicare toothbrush has a built in microprocessor that allows the bristle tips to move 3 times faster than other electric toothbrushes while moving in the back and forth motion that is recommended by dentists. While brushing does not replace flossing, Sonicare claims that the IntelliClean system is one step closer to flossing because the high speed motion of the toothbrush bristles actually dispense the crest toothpaste with fluoride deep between the teeth and below the gum line to enable cleaning those hard to reach places. This rechargeable toothbrush also has two speeds. One is for normal brushing and the other is a reduced speed to brush gentle or sensitive areas.

Special Conditions

For people with arthritis, brushing can be quite a chore. This toothbrush has a large handle which is great for arthritis sufferers and also limits the hand movement since the sonic movement of the toothbrush does most of the work for you. Gingivitis can occur frequently during pregnancy and the IntelliClean toothpaste dispensing toothbrush is ideal since it has been proven to reduce gingivitis. In addition, studies show that Diabetes is linked to gum disease, therefore, someone with diabetes could also benefit greatly from this toothbrush.

Better Brushing

This rechargeable sonic toothbrush has built in timers that tell you when you have brushed for the full recommended two minutes, 30 seconds for each quadrant of your mouth (upper and lower left and upper and lower right areas). How easy is that? Also, the way that it feels when you are brushing your teeth with this toothbrush is so invigorating, that you will actually want to keep brushing and you will love the fresh feeling in your mouth after using it.

Whiter Teeth

This toothbrush significantly reduces stains such as tobacco, coffee and tea, for noticeably whiter teeth. As a heavy coffee drinker, I have been amazed at how the coffee stains just disappear with the use of this toothbrush.
