Overcoming Objections To The Electric Toothbrush vs Manual

As a dental professional you know that Oral-B Electric Rechargeable toothbrushes are inspired by dental tools and fits the anatomy of each tooth perfectly using optimal movements to disrupt plaque. How do you handle the common objections some patients have about making the switch to electric rechargeable toothbrushes? Read on for our top tips for overcoming objections to the electric toothbrush vs manual.

Tip #1 - I can’t brush correctly.

Oral-B Electric Rechargeable toothbrushes have position detection to help your patients brush everywhere.

a. Helps brush by quadrant

b. Guides to focus more time in specified areas

c. Helps not miss a zone by tracking and guiding

Tip #2 - Electric toothbrushes are too harsh and aggressive.

Answer: Oral- B Electric Rechargeable toothbrushes have triple pressure control to support gentle brushing habits.

TRIPLE PRESSURE CONTROL TO SUPPORT GENTLE BRUSHING HABITS

When pressing too hard:

  1. Red light on handle turns on, signaling patient to reduce pressure
  2. Speed automatically reduces, pulsations stop - the brush switches to Sensitive Mode
  3. Oral-B® App indicator signals patients of over aggressive brushing

93% of patients reduced their overaggressive brushing habits.

Tip #3 - Don’t use Bluetooth Technology.

Answer: Oral-B Electric Rechargeable toothbrushes use Bluetooth Technology for Intelligent Brushing.

When combined with effective problem-solving and collaboration with a dental provider, the use of an intelligent, oscillating-rotating power toothbrush with Bluetooth technology can create a practice-changing system. Patients can use the tools to get immediate and personalized feedback on how they are doing, which helps them build new and better brushing habits and results in improved outcomes. Encouraging patients to use the system reinforces the fact that oral care is just as important to their health as diet, exercise, heart rate, and other issues for which online health tools are readily available and increasingly used.
