W HAT IS THE R OTA - DENT ? The Rota-dent one step toothbrush is an electronic toothbrush with different interchangeable toothbrush heads that rotate in a 360˚ motion.
H OW DOES THE R OTA - DENT WORK ? The different heads of the Rota-dent rotate in a 360˚ motion (which is how the cleaning and polishing equipment used by your hygienist and dentist works) The patented microfilament technology of the brush heads help the toothbrush to clean in the interproximal areas as well as the small grooves and pits that your teeth might have due to dental work or its natural form.
A DVANTAGES OF THE R OTA - DENT The 3 different types of brush heads available for the Rota-dent tooth brush help you to customize your brushing methods to your own personal hygiene needs, such as if you have orthodontics, or any other hard to clean dental work or dental issues.
D IFFERENT T OOTHBRUSH H EADS A SINGLE HEAD OR A COMBINATION OF HEADS WILL EFFECTIVELY CLEAN ALL AREAS.
H OW TO USE THE R OTA - DENT Do not "scrub" with the brush head. Let the rotary action of the instrument do the work. Because of the patented manufacturing technology of its brush tips, the Rota-dent cleans more effectively with less pressure. It is designed to be used with considerably less pressure than manual toothbrushes and even less pressure than other powered toothbrushes. The Rota-dent cleans well with or without toothpaste. To prolong the life of the brush head, use a gel, rather than a cream toothpaste.
M ORE ON HOW TO USE THE R OTA - DENT Hold your Rota-dent so that the brush tip meets the gum line and the tooth surfaces at a 90 ˚ angle. This most effectively cleans the tooth surface above and below the gum line. Move the Rota-dent along the gumline SLOWLY, letting it touch all tooth surfaces at the gum line.
M ORE ON HOW TO USE THE R OTA - DENT The pointed brush heads may be used for cleaning teeth that have braces attached to them. In this case, it is not always possible to hold your Rota-dent at a 90 degree angle. However, hold it at that angle whenever possible. Be sure to clean the wires and brackets adequately as plaque builds on them as well as teeth and gums. Some individuals may experience a mild "tingling" sensation when first using the Rota-dent. This results from stimulation of tissue in areas that have not been consistently cleaned. With continued use, this will cease after several days. Do not be overly concerned if some mild bleeding occurs at first. With continued use and professional care, bleeding will cease as gums become healthy.
C LEANING AND CHANGING THE R OTA - DENT Dental Professionals recommend brush head being replaced every 3 to 6 months or every check-up. The brush head needs to be replaced when it stops or stalls, when brush tip is splayed, or when brush makes a strange noise with brush head attached. To Clean the Brush Head: Keep unit running. Rinse brush end of head under warm running water for several seconds after every use. To Clean the Power Handle: Remove brush head from power handle. Gently wipe power handle with damp cloth. Do not store power handle in container where water may accumulate. Never drench, submerge, or immerse power handle in water.
