RADIUS: Intelligent Manual Toothbrush Review

"RADIUS was founded on the Caribbean island of Tortola. James O'Halloran and Kevin Foley were architects who were fascinated by the idea of a functional and enjoyable toothbrush. They were appalled at the small head, hard toothbrushes of the day. Research indicates that the major problem in oral hygiene is that of compliance -people don't use toothbrushes for long enough and tend to keep their toothbrush for too long. Dentists believe that with diligence - teeth and gums could be perfectly maintained for a lifetime. The average brushing time is from 31 to 65 seconds, depending on age or sex. The average toothbrush is thrown away after 10 months. RADIUS aimed to make the toothbrush comfortable, enjoyable and effective. With a mass of very soft bristles, a large head area for low pressure brushing and a comfortable handle, this toothbrush would let you brush lightly and accurately.

Intelligent Manual Toothbrush Features:
  • 2 minute timer -- toothbrush beeps once and green light flashes once every 30 sec. to 2 minutes.
  • 90 Day wear meter - after 180 uses the light changes to red to indicate time to check bristle wear. Depressing the button for 5 seconds resets the meter to zero.
  • Lightweight unbreakable replacement heads made from surgical-grade nylon.
  • Dramatically increases softness and efficacy of brushing with 65% more bristle tufts than ordinary toothbrush.
  • Reversible for both Right or Left handed brushing - Available in soft or medium bristles.
  • Handle lasts forever - the head can be discarded as you would a razor blade!
  • KID FRIENDLY! Great for children 6 years and above."
Like most moms I care about hygiene and yes, dental hygiene. That is why I was excited to review the Intelligent Manual Toothbrush from RADIUS. It has a 2 minute timer so you don't over do it or under do it. After 180 uses the light changes to red indicating it is time to check your bristle wear in case you need to change it out with a spare it comes with. The head can be discarded just like that! It is so easy to use! It feels soft on my gums and teeth. It reaches deep in the creases. My teeth felt cleaner after using this toothbrush.

This product is also good for kids above 6. This would be awesome for kids I think toothbrush does an awesome job on those hard to reach areas.

RADIUS toothbrushes are eco friendly.

 The Intelligent Manual Toothbrush from RADIUS is priced at $8.99 here.

Overall I loved this product! I would recommend this product to my friends and family. It did an wonderful job cleaning my teeth. They are also affordable!

RADIUS offers many other awesome toothbrushes at their website here.
