Getting older, I’ve noticed a few issues with my smile. My enamel has thinned, my gums are receding (caused by hard toothbrushes and rough brushing), and my teeth lost their whiteness. I tried every type of toothbrush, but never really bought into the electric toothbrush fad. I just figured they were overpriced and worked just as well as my Oral-B toothbrush I received after a dentist check-up. After my last checkup with a new dentist I started seeing here in NY, I was advised the advantages of an electric toothbrush, namely automatic pressure (so I can’t brush hard) and gentle cleaning to get where my manual toothbrushes can’t get to.

That’s when I came into contact with CariPro. I received a new CariPRO electric toothbrush in August and decided to try it out. I loved the look and feel of the brush, very sleek not bulky like some of the others on the market. It also is a pleasant blue color and easy to hold. It is also easy to use, and there are several options (clean, white, massage, gum care, sensitive). Once I selected one the modes, it operates for two minutes, 30 second bursts at a time. At the end of every burst, I just switched the brushing to a different quadrant of my mouth. So much easier than just standing and brushing mindlessly forgetting how long I brushed for!
Initially, I noticed a tickling feeling every time I brought the toothbrush to my teeth or gum line. I would actually laugh out loud! To get around this, I selected “sensitive” mode and continued using the toothbrush every day. After about 10 days I noticed I was no longer sensitive to the brushing and could explore other modes. I have always longed for a whiter smile, but can’t use any teeth whiteners due to my thinning enamel. So I was very excited to try this option! I used the white mode twice a day for another 10-14 days, and really started noticing a difference in my smile. Not only were my teeth 2 shades darker by the end of September, some of the dark coffee stains near my gums had lightened significantly.
I typically use an enamel boosting toothpaste that has helped sensitivity and loss of enamel over the years. But even with this, I get sensitive teeth when I eat foods with too much acid like lemons, pickles even salad dressings and fruit. It is pretty annoying, since I love fresh fruits and vegetables and sometimes have to cut back on the foods I love. Since using CariPro I wouldn’t say my sensitivity has completely gone away, but I haven’t had to hold back on many of the foods I enjoy daily. I attribute this to taking the human component of “brushing” and allowing the CariPRO to gently brush the teeth. I literally just place the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle and brush along the gum line, moving the brush inside to outside each row for full cleaning coverage. I do not apply any additional pressure, and I definitely feel like my teeth are clean and shining after brushing!
I hope you can enjoy CariPRO as much as I did! And here’s a 20% off coupon if you decide to try CariPRO! Cheers to a brighter, healthier smile!
