Does an electric toothbrush have a motor?
The rechargeable battery of an electric toothbrush provides power that enables the toothbrush to move. The motor is the spearhead for all of the motion within an electric toothbrush. The motor simply turns the gear to initiate the motion needed to clean your teeth.
How do you take apart a spinbrush toothbrush?
Remove the end cap from the bottom of the toothbrush by prying it off with a spudger. Remove the top cap by using a spudger to pry the plastic ring off of the toothbrush frame. Push on the rotating head in order to pop the assembly out of the black plastic casing.
Where is the motor in an electric toothbrush?
The cam and gear unit is connected to a gear built into the top of the motor, so the motor drives it directly. Underneath the motor, there’s a rechargeable battery. Attached to the inner plastic case, there’s a simple electric circuit board that controls the on/off switch on the outer case.
What kind of motor is in an electric toothbrush?
The TIDA-00602 requires a battery, preferably 2.5 to 4.5 V, and a motor. Either a vibration motor or brushed DC motor may be used.
Can electric toothbrushes damage teeth?
Used properly, an electric toothbrush should not hurt your gums or enamel but instead promote overall oral health. Many people are guilty of brushing too hard, which can, over time, cause irreversible damage to tooth enamel and can cause receding gums, which is also irreversible.
How do you disassemble an Oral B toothbrush?
To start off, remove any brush heads from the top of the handle. Stand the toothbrush tip-first in hot water (60 degrees C) for 5 minutes to soften the plastic and make the ring easier to remove. Use the screwdriver to pry off the plastic ring from around the shaft.
How do you disassemble an electric toothbrush?
Step 1: Disassemble the Toothbrush
- Remove the brush head.
- Using a small adjustable spanner place this around the flat of the white plastic part of the toothbrush as shown and twist the spanner anticlockwise.
- After twisting about 30degrees the white plastic should disengage from the main body of the toothbrush.
Is a sonic toothbrush better than electric?
While both the sonic and electric toothbrushes work well in comparison to the manual toothbrush, the sonic toothbrush is undeniably more efficient in cleaning your teeth. Electric toothbrushes typically have bristles that either scrub forward and backward or rotate in a mechanized motion.
Do electric toothbrushes make a difference?
Electric toothbrushes clean teeth and gums much better than a manual toothbrush, according to the findings of a new study. Scientists found that people who use an electric toothbrush have healthier gums, less tooth decay and also keep their teeth for longer, compared with those who use a manual toothbrush.
How long should you keep an electric toothbrush?
Many dental professionals recommend changing your toothbrush about every three months, and the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that you replace your toothbrush approximately every three to four months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed.

Why does my electric toothbrush smell?
The accumulated water and protein-laden water drips down and there are enough nutrients in that water to allow bacteria and mold to grow [sic]. Which all sounds about right: Gunk and mold thrive wherever water sits stagnant—say, the base of the toothbrush, or where the head is attached.
Can you submerge an electric toothbrush in water?
Yes, all Oral-B electric toothbrushes are waterproof, so it is fine to use them in the shower. However, we don’t recommend immersing your brush in water.
