“I am a dentist who is a specialist in treating gum disease. This toothbrush is phenomenal. I see a lot of patients who have either the Oral-B or Sonicare toothbrush who have filthy teeth. The problem with those other brushes is twofold. First, they still rely on the user positioning the bristles properly on the teeth. Most people do this well for the upper front teeth, but totally miss the upper back or the inside of the lower teeth. The 30 Second Smile positions itself automatically so that all the tooth surfaces get cleaned uniformly. The second big thing is how fast it cleans the teeth. Because it cleans 6 tooth surfaces at once, it is much faster than any other toothbrush. Most people don’t brush long enough, even with an electric brush. The 30 Second Smile does a very thorough job in less than a minute. To me, this is a real breakthrough product and one that has the potential to make a huge impact on public health.
I started using the brush about 18 months ago and was very impressed with it. I let my wife use it and she gave the stamp of approval, so I started recommending it to patients. Then I got some for my kids. It is no longer a struggle to get my kids to clean their teeth well (yes, dentists have trouble getting their kids to brush just like everyone else).
I recommend it regularly to my patients. When they come back for their cleanings, the visits are almost always much easier for the hygienist and more comfortable for the patient because teeth are much cleaner. Patients comment to me that their teeth feel smooth like glass and they seem whiter. Patients are also horrified when they realize how deficient their oral hygiene has been in the past when they see how clean their teeth can be on a daily basis. Their comments are usually something like “No wonder I have gum disease, I was barely cleaning my teeth before. I see patients with gum disease get much healthier because they are for the first time in their life thoroughly cleaning their teeth. Patients teeth do not seem to stain as quickly when using this brush, so they are whiter between cleanings. This brush is also very good for people who are wearing away their teeth or gums by scrubbing too hard. This brush makes it impossible to brush too hard. It delivers the proper force irrespective of what the user does. I have seen so many people cause needless recession of their gums or damage to their teeth by scrubbing their teeth and thinking they were doing good for themselves. The 30 Second Smile is perfect for scrubbers.
Once you get past that it looks different, you will love the brush. If you have spent any kind of money on whitening or cosmetic procedures, you would be foolish not to protect the investment with this brush. When I ask my patients how they like it, they rave about it. I would recommend the brush for anyone that wants easier cleanings when they go to the dentist, anyone who wants to keep their gums and teeth healthy very easily, simply and predictably and especially anyone with kids. If you can get your kids teeth clean, you will save them a lifetime of trouble and expense. I know this has been a long rambling review, but I feel passionately about the product after using it myself, and seeing how it has benefited my family and my patients.
Everything changed with the 30 Second Smile, with my patients having less stains, brighter teeth, less frequent cleanings, and a fresher mouth…. The design (of the 30 Second Smile) is so ingenious and common sense.”
