How long do electric brushes last?

How long do Oral B electric toothbrushes last?
Life Span. The average life span of an electric toothbrush is 3-5 years.
How often are you supposed to brush your teeth?
Answer From Thomas J. Salinas, D.D.S. The American Dental Association recommends brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste for two minutes each time. When you brush your teeth, you help remove food and plaque — a sticky white film that forms on your teeth and contains bacteria.
Is it OK to leave electric toothbrush on charger?
It is perfectly safe to disconnect the power and leave the brush fitted to the charging stand. Doing so will keep the toothbrush upright and reduce any potential risk and damage to the toothbrush. Leaving the power cable connected is generally fine also, but it is not necessarily required.
How do you disinfect an electric toothbrush?
Soaking your toothbrush in an antibacterial mouthwash is an easy and effective way to get it clean. Simply fill a cup with mouthwash and submerge your toothbrush in the solution, head down. Allow it to soak for at least four hours and rinse the brush thoroughly before using.
Can I replace the battery in my Oral-B electric toothbrush?
No, you cannot replace the battery in your Oral-B electric toothbrush. The battery is contained within the electronics of the toothbrush handle and the unit is then sealed to keep it water tight. For these reasons we do not provide replacement batteries for Oral-B electric toothbrushes.
Why does my Oral-B toothbrush keep flashing green?
If the indicator keeps flashing green, the toothbrush is charging. If it glows steady green, the battery is full, and you can take the brush off the charger. With Oral B Vitality, there is no way to tell if it is charging except putting it on the charger for a couple of hours and then trying to switch it on.
