Frequently Asked Questions
Question: How often should I replace my toothbrush head?
Answer: Dental professionals recommend replacing your toothbrush every 3-4 months, or earlier, if the bristles become spread out or frayed. When bristles are worn out, cleaning effectiveness decreases.
Question: What’s the difference between Floss Action and other Oral-B electric toothbrush heads?
Answer: Each Oral-B electric toothbrush head focuses on a slightly different type of cleaning. CrossAction features precisely angled bristles to lift and remove more plaque than a regular manual toothbrush. Precision Clean is designed for precision cleaning and more plaque removal along the gumline than a regular manual toothbrush. TriZone bristles sweep in-between teeth to power away plaque and allows you to brush as you would with a manual toothbrush. The Floss Action brush head has MicroPulse bristles that penetrate deep between teeth to sweep away plaque for a floss-like clean (does not replace flossing). 3DWhite features a dentist-inspired polishing cup to remove surface stains. Sensitive offers gentle, yet effective, cleaning.
Question: Which electric toothbrush handles are compatible with the Floss Action brush head?
Answer: The Floss Action replacement toothbrush head works with Oral-B Triumph, Oral-B SmartSeries, Oral-B PRO, Oral-B Vitality (except for Vitality Sonic) and Oral-B Pro-Health Power.
