White And Polished Teeth - At Home
Pair your home tooth polisher with the right enamel tooth polisher pastes and dental cleaning products for all your teeth:
Affordable Orawave Power Whitener Toothbrush and Polisher
OraWave Polishing Pair
Rubber Tip Polisher And Dual-Head Brush
The OraWave package offers both a dual-head power toothbrush and a polisher. The polishing package contains one battery operated handle with two types of attachable heads: A rubber teeth polishing cup and a oscillating dual-head brush. The polishing cup is a hygienist-style prophy polishing cup that not only cleans and whiten the teeth - but also reaches just below the gum line. 2 AA batteries are already included to get your started. Priced around $12, this is the most affordable tooth polisher widely available on the market. Unfortunately the replaceable, interchangeable heads tend to get cracks in the plastic and break long before the polishing tip or brush heads wear out. Dr. Toofy has had to repeatedly buy new OraWave polishers regularly because of this. It's best to consider the Ora-Wave a somewhat disposable product after a few thorough cleaning uses - but the price is right. The tooth brush itself is VERY effective, the slightly angled double-brush soft heads really do clean teeth and remove daily placque very thoroughly.

DIY Home Teeth Polishing and Cleaning
Home Dental polishing is not a complicated procedure and can be easily done by anyone using these specific oral care tools. Though not common on store shelves, there are a few dental polishers available online. Investing in a good tooth polisher helps with cleaning and teeth whitening in-between visits to your dentist for a tooth polishing session. This can save you a fair amount of money - especially if your dental insurance only covers a annual prophylaxis and cleaning once a year, or only allows cleanings at specific time intervals.
A dental polisher looks pretty much like many electric toothbrushes with a small, rubber cupped head. The head spins or oscillates in order to polish the tooth surface. Choose a good polisher by reading expert and consumer reviews, so you won’t waste your money on an ineffective product. A good polisher should be able to remove plaque thoroughly from teeth.
If you’re looking for something you can easily bring along on your frequent travels, look for polishers that already come with travel pouches. Most polishers are also operated by regular AA batteries, and we recommend the value of a rechargeable NiMh set of batteries and wall charger. Also, some polishers already include additional polishing heads or brushes in a single package.
