What makes the nylon brush head different?
In the 360 degree teeth brushing space, there are many competitors that use silicone and here are some of the differences between silicone and nylon brush heads:
- More Aggressive Cleaning Experience: Silicone is a great alternative for those who have sensitive teeth or gums or require a gentler cleaning experience. Nylon bristles provide a more abrasive effect that helps to scrape plaque off to a higher degree.
- Needs to be Replaced More Often: In general, nylon bristles retain more bacteria over time than silicone bristles requiring more frequent replacements. Our nylon brush heads are designed to last for 2 months in between replacements
- Lower Bristle Width: In general, silicone bristles have a higher width (1 mm or more) whereas nylon bristles can be designed to be around as wide as 0.1 mm. This allows for more bristles to penetrate the same surface area, allowing for plaque to be swept away more efficiently across the surface areas of the teeth
Ultimately, the best way to ensure you're getting the most out of your AutoBrush cleaning experience is to ensure you're moving the brush around which helps to sweep off plaque.
