cariPRO™ ELECTRIC TOOTHBRUSH

GIVEAWAY: Smile Brilliant cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush: Oral Care for Less

Hello, fellow weekenders. Are you looking to switch to an electric toothbrush or maybe in the market for a replacement? Have we got a great electric toothbrush for you! One that will make you smile brilliantly. The best part, it’s half the price of other electric toothbrushes with the same quality and better features. Say hello to the must-have in oral care, the Smile Brilliant cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush, created by Founder & President Betty Shah, a 30-yr dental professional. And guess what, one lucky ready will win this amazing ultrasonic electric toothbrush.

Smile Brilliant cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush

The Smile Brilliant cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush promises a healthier mouth, improved gum care, whiter teeth, and a 60-day money-back guarantee. There are so many things we love about this electric toothbrush. What are our favorites? The smart timer that lets you know when you move to the other sections of your mouth, and the 5 brush modes (clean, white, massage, gum care, sensitive). Most electric toothbrushes, especially those on a lower price point, do not offer this many modes.

Smile Brilliant cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush

Why do we love the multiple modes? We love it because we can change modes while we’re brushing. This proved essential because we have a loose tooth that’s not quite ready to be extracted yet; the clean and white modes were both too strong for it so we switched to the sensitive mode for the quadrant of our mouth where our loose tooth was. It must be noted that switching modes restart the smart timer process, so you’ll have to shut it off manually. That, of course, can be done with one push of a button.

You’ll also love its power. As heavy tea drinkers, we appreciate the cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush’s 40,000 vibrations/minute dynamic cleaning action. It’s just what we need to remove tea stains from our teeth. Other standout features include a 30-day battery life (on a full charge), an ergonomic slim design with a graphite gray soft-touch grip, a waterproof design that is safe for shower or bath and a tongue scraper; the latter is a feature we haven’t seen on an electric toothbrush.

Straightening Up: The Rise Of Invisible Braces For Improved Smiles

People have been looking to improve their smile for ages, and in recent years, one option has risen dramatically in popularity as a solution for crooked teeth: invisible braces. These plastic trays have seen incredible success as a popular cosmetic dentistry option in recent years, and the market’s only projected to grow in the coming years. So what’s behind this trend? What has made invisible braces such a popular choice for people looking to improve their teeth?

Invisible Adjustments

Obviously, the most notable difference between invisible aligners and their more well-known alternative, traditional metal braces, is that they’re invisible. Because the aligner trays are made of clear plastic, they can’t be seen unless you’re looking closely. This makes them an incredibly popular option among people who are worried about their appearance while undergoing treatment – even some celebrities are opting to use the trays to maintain their image while straightening their teeth.

Lower Costs

Invisible aligners are made of plastic, which is what allows them to be unnoticeable. However, this also creates an additional benefit: reduced cost. Today the world makes and consumes about 600 billion pounds of plastic yearly, and one of the reasons for this is because items made from plastic tend to be cheaper. This is just as true for aligners, which are often a fraction of the price of traditional braces.

Combine that with the fact that aligners can often be managed at home, and you’re looking at a much cheaper path to straighter teeth. The median annual wage for dental hygienists was $74,070 in 2017, and orthodontists earn higher wages than that. For many people, the cost of a visit to an orthodontist for braces-related concerns pushes them into seeking out invisible aligners, as they can be managed with fewer expensive in-person visits.

Easier Maintenance

Not only are invisible aligners less noticeable and cheaper; they’re easier to maintain. Invisible aligners can be removed when eating or to brush your teeth, making them cleaner and often healthier. Meanwhile, traditional braces can get in the way and require special care for cleaning. This makes invisible aligners preferable to people who don’t have the time to take special care of traditional braces.

It’s clear that invisible aligners have a certain set of advantages that make them a better choice for some when it comes to straightening their smile. And considering almost 32% of people report being concerned with the look of their teeth, this is proving to be a viable solution. With how these unique cosmetic dental appliances are trending, it’s likely that they’re here to stay for at least a while. Would you ever consider using invisible aligners over metal braces?

Waterpik Sonic-Fusion Toothbrush, the World’s First Flossing Toothbrush

Who knew that the road to better dental care would take us to the historic Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum? Waterpik hosted a wonderfully informative cocktail event, where guests were introduced to the world’s first and only all-in-one toothbrush and flosser, the Waterpik Sonic-Fusion Toothbrush. Now you can brush AND floss at the same time! That’s right, a flossing toothbrush now exists!! This is a groundbreaking step in oral care and perfect for a woman like me, who is ALWAYS short on time.

Backed by a beautiful view of the Hudson River from the Intrepid, guests were treated to cocktails and small bites, while reps Kendall Begier and Amy Motta displayed the Waterpik Sonic-Fusion Toothbrush in two colors: Classic (Gloss) White, and (Semi-Matte) Black. I immediately loved the size – as someone with lots of health and beauty products in my bathroom, and a veteran of small-space living, the Sonic-Fusion leaves a small footprint on your sink surface. Plus, its one-step use and its one-handed mode control for a healthier mouth pack quite a punch.

By merging the latest Waterpik Water Flosser and Sonic Toothbrush technologies, Sonic-Fusion enables brushing and flossing at the same time. As the sonic toothbrush head cleans tooth surfaces, the Water Flosser jet inside the brush head targets plaque and debris between teeth and below the gumline where toothbrush bristles can’t reach. This flexible device also allows for brushing and flossing separately, with the touch of a button, and offers three cleaning modes: Brush, Floss, or Brush + Floss for flexibility.

The Sonic Fusion is said to be 2x as effective as regular brushing and flossing and removes 99.9% of plaque from treated areas. I HAD to try it for myself. For my first trial of The Waterpik life, I took it with me on a week-long trip to our nation’s capital! Perfect size for hotel surfaces because of the smaller footprint and the travel case for the brush and brush heads.  I offer all you guestlisters out there an unboxing and mini walk-through of my experience using the Waterpik Sonic-Fusion via Instagram Stories (IG: @saucywallflower)

Basically, I love this device.  I don’t remember having such a polished clean feeling in my mouth without feeling the pain of stringing teeth with floss and sensitive gums. Run out and get one for yourself!  Your dentist will love you, and you will love your checkups  – you know the part where when  your dentist asks you the dreaded question “Have you been flossing regularly?” you can proudly and loudly say, “YES!” You will love this device for many reasons, including advanced water pressure control and 10 settings for custom comfort, a 2-minute brushing timer with a 30-second pacer, a reservoir capacity of 60+ seconds, a premium LED recharge indicator, with two patented Water Flossing brush heads and a deluxe toothbrush case included.

The Waterpik Sonic-Fusion Toothbrush retails for $199.99 and comes with a three-year warranty and is accepted by the American Dental Association (ADA). Get your own on www.waterpik.com/sonic-fusion.
