I've been on a mission over the last decade to find the perfect toothbrush, and to do so, I obviously had
to choose electric as a minimum requirement because the electric toothbrushes out on the market today
are designed to oscillate much faster than a human hand could ever do. I've evaluated OralB,
SonicCare, Crest Spin, etc, and they all do a pretty decent job, particularly the SonicCare with its fast
But not until recently has a toothbrush product come out that has really nearly replaced those annual
cleanings I have to endure at the dentist. No one would recommend to another the absense of annual
dental check-ups, but it's certainly nice to take out a little self-insurance policy for dental work by using
an at-home toothbrush product that really does what it says it's going to do- deep clean.
The supersmile Series II LS 45-degree toothbrush is just that product. To clean and polish teeth while
removing plaque and bacteria from beneath the gum crevice is the goal of all dental hygiene. Because a
toothbrush’s performance relies heavily on the angle of its bristles and so many brushes have an
inadequate design, many toothbrush brands fall short of this task.
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends brushing at a 45˚ angle to efficiently clean teeth
and maintain healthy gums. However, most toothbrushes today boast designs with staggered bristle
lengths, revolving tips, or ineffective dips in the center of the brush. Even those with uniform bristles,
including battery- and electric-powered varieties, rely too heavily on the user to hold the brush at the
“This translates to inadequate brushing,” says Dr. Irwin Smigel, founder and president of the American
Society for Dental Aesthetics and inventor of Supersmile Intelligent Smile Care™. Perhaps this is why,
according to the USDA, 75% of the population over age 35 has some form of Gingivitis, an early stage
of gum disease in which tartar and bacterial plaque buildup cause inflammation.
Supersmile, makers of the #1 whitening toothpaste recommended by cosmetic dentists, developed the
only toothbrush on the market with a patented, ADA-recommended 45˚ angled brush head. Now,
they’ve applied this same precision design to their latest introduction: the Series II LS 45˚ Advanced
Sonic Pulse Toothbrush—the ONLY electric toothbrush that combines 45˚-angled bristles with state-of-
the-art sonic technology to effectively clean and polish teeth both beneath and below the sulcus.
Sleek and comfortable to use, the Series II LS 45˚ Advanced Sonic Pulse Toothbrush took two years to
develop. It operates at 30,000 strokes per minute and offers three custom settings: CLEAN for
exceptional cleaning, GENTLE for sensitive teeth and PULSE to help stimulate blood flow to the
A two-minute auto timer pulses at 30-second intervals, signaling the user that it’s time to move to a
different quadrant of the mouth, making brushing goof-proof. It comes with two 45˚ interchangeable
brush heads which should be replaced every three months. The Supersmile Series II LS 45˚ Advanced
Sonic Pulse Toothbrush sells for $99.
I really do endorse this product. Using it once is enough to be convinced. While you may not instantly
be awarded pearly whites, you do notice the sensation of a thorough cleaning, one that reaches into and
under the gums. The supersmile also makes sure you're cleaning long enough with its two-minute auto
timer, and its intervals remind you to spend at least a consistent 30-seconds for each area of your teeth.
It's also quite a deal at under $100. I remember paying over $200 when SoniCare first came out
