Electric toothbrushes are increasingly used because they clean teeth better than manual toothbrushes. However, these devices require regular maintenance to work optimally.
Replace the brushes as soon as the indicators (usually blue) fade or the bristles start softening. The charging base or the motor may need replacing. To avoid any unpleasant issues, you may want to dry off your Braun or Philips electric toothbrush after every use. This prevents water running down which could damage the electric components or those that move.
