Why has my electric toothbrush stopped charging?
Make sure you are not charging the toothbrush on a metal surface. The metal can interfere with the charging process. If they’re switched on while charging, they won’t charge correctly. The best thing to do is to put it on the charger for 30 minutes or so, and then try to switch it on.
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.
Why does my toothbrush smell like poop?
Poor oral hygiene can cause your breath to smell like poop. Failing to brush and floss your teeth properly and regularly can make your breath smell because plaque and bacteria accumulate on and between your teeth. Food that’s not removed by flossing stays between your teeth, causing your breath to smell unpleasant.
Why is there yellow stuff on my toothbrush?
The yellow build-up on your teeth, known as dental plaque, is the biofilm that the bacteria created. Since your toothbrush is physically brushing off this bacteria from your teeth, it is considered to be a potential source of infections and reinfections in your mouth and body.
Why did my toothbrush turn yellow?
Usually, the underlying reason for a toothbrush turning yellow is too much sugar in a diet. Sugar tends to worsen the buildup of plaque in your mouth, causing a more yellowish color to build on your teeth. If you’re frequently brushing your teeth, this buildup might also transfer to your toothbrush, staining it yellow.
What is the lifespan of an electric toothbrush?
The average life span of an electric toothbrush is around 5 years. Manufacturers normally offer a 2 year warranty should the brush fail sooner. But some brushes will last a lot longer — we know of people still using electric toothbrushes that are 10 years old.
Why has my Oral-B toothbrush stopped working?
The best thing to do is to put it on the charger for 30 minutes or so, and then try to switch it on. It should blink green during charging. Note that this can take up to 15 minutes to start happening if the toothbrush was entirely drained of battery during brushing. When charging is complete, the blinking should stop.
Why did my Oral-B toothbrush stopped working?
First thing to do is check that the power outlet you are using is working as it should. If it’s attached to a bathroom cabinet, for example, the light switch on the cabinet may need to be switched on to power the socket. Make sure you are not charging the toothbrush on a metal surface.
Should you leave your electric toothbrush on the charger all the time?

Can I replace the battery in my Oral-B electric toothbrush?
