When it comes to brushing your teeth, which everyone does, you have two basic toothbrush choices: manual or electric. While there have been continuing, and recent, innovations to the electric toothbrush, there has been relatively little change in the design of a manual toothbrush that isn’t purely aesthetic. I never gave it any thought until I was asked to “try out” the 360 round-head toothbrush by Hartfelt, and I said OK, because I am obsessed with dental hygiene!
The toothbrush arrived in the mail and I saw right away that it was not only very sleek and aesthetically pleasing, but that the head was indeed a full 360 degrees of bristles, unlike any toothbrush I had seen before. HartFelt’s new 360 degree toothbrush is truly innovative, because it is the world’s first 360 degree designed toothbrush.
Here is close-up of the head from the back of the package. It looks like fun, right? Developed in Japan at the Osaka University Dental Hospital, the 360 Toothbrush’s 10,000 micro fine bristles — 10 times more than the average toothbrush — provide unparalleled cleaning power! Circular rings firmly hold the bristles in place, while spacing washers between bristle layers make it more effective for removing plaque and keeping the brush clean. I was excited to give the 360 a try!
The first time I used the 360 brush, it felt a litte weird and bulky in my mouth, but by the next use it was as comfortable as any regular toothbrush. Directions on the package recommend that you brush more gently than usual, and that is helpful advice to keep you from banging it into your gums while you get used to how the uniquely-shaped head feels between your teeth and gums. There is no need to turn, spin, or twist your wrist as you brush. It really get does between your teeth and down to the gum line (which is very important to keep your gums healthy), and it is fun to use because you know you are helping to make your mouth healthy.
After using this toothbrush for about three weeks, I can say that my teeth do feel cleaner, and the test is the way that they feel against my tongue. Because the tongue knows all. The 360 Toothbrush is perfect to keep in the office, and is also appropriate to take out camping, or on the road, as it can be used effectively with water alone when you are on the go and no toothpaste is available. The 360 Toothbrush by Hartfelt is a great product that does exactly what it claims to do, and I recommend it to all my readers!
