Q: Since the bristles are soft, will I need to replace my Curvex® more frequently?

A: Due to our uniquely tapered bristle array, regular users of Curvex have not experienced premature bristle wear. Dentists and dental hygienists do recommend that toothbrushes are regularly replaced every three to four months due to bacterial build-up.

Q: Why might I want Curvex® II? Shouldn't Curvex® satisfy all of my needs?

A: For most individuals, Curvex is an excellent solution for regular home dental care. However, Curvex ll enables you to most effectively clean hard to reach areas in your mouth using a finger rather than a wrist motion. It also is an effective tool for cleaning the tongue where odor-producing bacteria readily accumulate.

Because of its unique design, Curvex II is also an ideal product for:

  • Infants and young children
  • Caregivers
  • People with disabilities and special needs
  • Cleaning crowded or malposed teeth
  • Cleaning partially edentulous areas
  • Patients with cosmetic dentistry, crowns, bridges, and partial dentures
