Oral health is something I’m passionate about. From a very young age, my mother always emphasized the importance of proper brushing & flossing daily and this is something I’ve passed onto my daughter.
When Curaprox approached me asking if I’d like to try their Hydrosonic Pro Electric Toothbrush R3,400 (BUY), I jumped at the opportunity. Reason being, I believe an electric toothbrush cleans teeth and gums better than a manual one (although manual options are often recommended by dentists for specific issues, when an electric toothbrush is just not suitable).
I’ve read a few studies where scientists found that people who use an electric toothbrush have healthier gums, less tooth decay, and keep their teeth for longer, compared to those who use a manual toothbrush. Also, once you’ve used an electric toothbrush, it’s very hard to go back to a manual one.

Now, while brushing is super important, I was quite taken aback to learn a few things about the oral microbiome that I have to share:
The Importance of the Oral Microbiome
The bacteria in the mouth corresponds closely with a range of systemic diseases like cardiovascular disorders, rheumatic arthritis, strokes, inflammatory disease of the internal organs, colo-rectal cancer, respiratory tract inflammation and many more.
This underpins the importance of daily tooth brushing!
Climate Change in the Mouth
Yes, this is a thing! Sugar encourages cavity-causing bacteria (this we know), but it also inhibits the growth of many bacteria beneficial to the health of the dental enamel. Why? Because the pH of the mouth decreases due to the cavity-causing bacteria’s metabolism. Bottom line: brush your teeth after eating sugar!
Research has shown that a low carb diet combined with lots of Vitamin C & D, fibre, antioxidants & Omega 3 Fatty acids can lower inflammation related periodontal diseases like gingivitis & periodontitis.
Now that you’re aware of just how important brushing teeth is, lets chat more about the Curaprox Hydrosonic Pro and its unique features.
Along with the functional, almost futuristic hand piece, the Curaprox Hydrosonic Pro comes with 3 brush heads, giving you everything you need to achieve & maintain oral health at a professional level.
3 BRUSH Heads: POWER, SENSITIVE & SINGLE.
The POWER head is great for those with healthy gums as its powerful yet gentle.
The SENSITIVE head is especially soft & highly efficient. It’s great for those with sensitive gums, gingivitis, periodontitis & peri-implantitis (dental disease).
The SINGLE head is great for gaps between teeth, implants, bridges, brackets & those with bracers. It also works well for cleaning around implants & polishing the tooth surfaces.
The ergonomic of these brush heads, that have a small 10 to 15-degree angle that allows one to effectively clean areas that are difficult to reach, like behind the molars or the backs of the front teeth.
Worth a mention too, are the bristle used on the toothbrush heads. Compared to standard nylon bristles, the CUREN filaments have the benefit of not absorbing water, so performance is constant.
The Hydrosonic Pro comes in a handy travel case
7 Modes of Cleaning:
I really like that with the Hydrosonic Pro, you’re able to select a mode of cleaning that’s right for your teeth.
Start Mode: For special cleaning on orthodontic devices and prosthesis.
Clean Mode: 3 different intensities. Use with the sensitive or power brush heads
Smile Mode: 3 different modes. Use with the sensitive or power brush
A short interruption lets you know when 30 seconds have passed. A long interruption lets you know when two minutes have passed (it’s recommended you brush for at least two minutes). After four minutes, the Hydrosonic Pro turns off automatically.
Making Brushing Fun!
I also have to mention the Curaprox range of toothpastes, which are just too delightful (R270 for a tube that includes a manual toothbrush).
The bold and bright packaging is so cool and the flavours are awesome. They include: Gin and Tonic + Persimmon, Peach + Apricot, Watermelon, Blackberry + Liquorice, Apple + Aloe (my favourite) and Grapefruit & Bergamot.
I mean, talk about making brushing your teeth fun!
