Radius Toothbrush

Properly brushing your teeth can help prevent cavities,  and periodontal, or gum disease,  which causes  adult tooth loss. It is highly important to practice good dental hygeine by properly brushing your teeth atleast twice a day.  It is also important to use a toothbrush that will help you acheive a healthy looking smile,  that is why I was more than willing to review a toothbrush from  Radius is a brand that is rather unique, due to the fact that their brand of toothbrushes offer a wide head area,  full of soft bristles,  all on a comfortable handle.    In fact,  a normal toothbrush has only 2,00 bristles, while the  Radius toothbrush  offers up to 6,500!

Did you know that the average toothbrush is thrown away after ten months?  Sixty percent of Radius users reported three times longer than an average toothbrush!  That means you don't have to replace it as often as usual toothbrushes,  which means it saves us money!  The Radius Original and Scuba toothbrush are designed with an asymmetric layout that places the bristles automatically at an angle to the teeth,  which is recommended by the ADA.  The large surface of the head allows you to apply far less pressure on your gums so they massage your gums making brushing your teeth more of a enjoyable process. 

I selected two different toothbrushes manufactured by Radius  to review.  The first one I chose to review was their  Source Toothbrush.  The thing that really stood out about this toothbrush is the fact that the handle is made out of recycled US Treasury bills.  If you look closely at the handle you can actually see the little peices of dollar bills!  The large size of the handle make it extremely easy to grip,  so I didnt have to use as much pressure on my gums while brushing. 

Along with the large size of the bristle head,  making brushing an ease!   The Source Toothbrush comes with a replacement head that weighs just 7 % of the total toothbrush weight.  You may also want to purchase a travel case for your toothbrush for only $1.49.  You can purchase a Source Toothbrush from Radius for only $5.21 or find it at local stores such as,  Target,  Whole Foods Market,  Wegmans and many other stores.  If you are having trouble finding a retailer that sells Radius Toothbrushes be sure to call their customer service line for information on store locations.

The second item I chose to review is one of their Pure Baby Toothbrush for ages six to eighteen months.  I figured it would be perfect for my youngest son who just turned one in April,  and it was!  The white toothbrush is perfectly designed for my little one as it is designed to be chewed!  And you know babies are constantly trying to chew anything that goes into their little mouths.  This toothbrush is actually the worlds first completely dye- free toothbrush,  and is BPA free.  It is designed with an oval head with non-aligned bristle layout to avoid tooth erosion.  This particlular toothbrush can be purchased single,  or in a pack of  three,  or six.  My baby loved this toothbrush,  and didnt fuss at all while I brushed his teeth. 

*Disclaimer-  I received free products to review from Radius.  In no way did this alter my opinon of their products.  All of my opinions are one hundred percent honest and true.*
