This next-gen toothbrush improved my life in a surprising number of ways
There’s one element of your health routine that can impact more of your life than you might ever realize: your daily dental hygiene routine.
And even despite brushing and flossing two or three times a day, doing your best to avoid sugar, and steering clear of drinks which can stain your teeth, a $2 manual toothbrush just won’t cut it anymore if you want to look and feel your best. After all, you only get one set of adult teeth – you’ve got to look after them.
I didn’t realize how little I’d let that idea slip until recently. What made me reflect on how big an impact my dental hygiene was having on my life? I recently upgraded to the next-level AquaSonic Black Series Toothbrush and it’s no exaggeration to say that it changed everything. I grabbed it on sale for just $39.99, a 78% discount off the regular price of $189 (and it’s still on sale at that price right now, too).
Here’s what happened when I upgraded my toothbrush tech.
My mouth was healthier than ever
It’s true of relationships, it’s true of workplaces, and it’s true of your toothbrush: Sometimes, you don’t notice the low standards you have been putting up with until you experience the alternative. The AquaSonic has a powerful 40,000 VPM motor, designed specifically to dissolve stains and whiten at the same time. All that power means this toothbrush removes ten times more plaque than an old-fashioned toothbrush – and I definitely felt it. You know that ultra-clean feeling you get after you’ve been to the dental hygienist? After a couple of weeks of using this, I was running my tongue along my teeth in exactly the same way.
I had a noticeably whiter smile
After a while, I realized my teeth weren’t just healthier, they actually looked as good as they felt, too. This particular model comes with a range of brushing modes, including soft, massage, cleaning, and whitening. The latter, I was using daily. One day I saw a photo of myself tagged on Instagram – without any filter or editing – and I was blown away by the brightness of my smile. I was looking better than ever, and feeling it, too.
I stopped overthinking my dental routine
This might sound counter-intuitive, as I’m a big fan of the Aquasonic. But, after a short while of incorporating it into my daily hygiene routine, I stopped worrying about my teeth. That is, my gum health had improved, and I had stopped seeing blood when I spit after brushing my teeth (a surprisingly common issue, but one which can lead to tooth loss if not checked out) and I also didn’t need to think about buying new toothbrushes again, as my package came with eight replacement brush heads. That nagging dental to-do list that had previously been at the back of my mind (both about health and practical shopping chores) simply wasn’t there anymore.
My confidence skyrocketed
Now, this was the biggest change of all. I was smiling more. Not just because my teeth looked great (though they did) but because I was happier, too. I felt confident in my smile and beamed openly when speaking to others.
It made me appear more confident and warmer to people I spoke to: both my family and friends and professional acquaintances I did business with. I left a networking event with more contacts than I ever had previously, and that same week I gave what I can only describe as the best deck I’ve ever presented at work.
I was smiling, I felt confident, and it was touching those around me, too. The knock-on effect was about more than white teeth.
Others noticed I was a new and improved version of myself
Recently, a friend asked me, “What’s got you smiling so much?”
I didn’t verbalize it completely, but I knew the answer: my smile was reason to smile enough.
“I really feel great about myself lately,” I replied.
