Does a spin brush really spin?
How does a Spinbrush battery-powered toothbrush work? Your Spinbrush toothbrush works with a series of gears and linkages that turn when a powered motor is switched on. This makes the round upper brush head quickly spin back and forth (oscillate) and moves the lower brush head up and down.

Electric toothbrush bristles vibrate or rotate to help you remove plaque buildup from your teeth and gums. The vibration allows for more micro-movements every time you move your toothbrush across your teeth.
What toothbrush do dentists recommend?

How often should you change your toothbrush?
