Knowing When to Replace Your Electric Toothbrush
Although electric toothbrushes almost come from several companies such as Philips and Oral-B, however there are some ambiguities regarding how long the device lasts and when it should be replaced.
The lifespan of an electric toothbrush can be difficult to assess as it consists of electronic components and bristle parts.
How long does an electric toothbrush last?
Since a machine is intricate, the causes of failure can vary. But if there is an issue with its rechargeable battery, it could reach its end of life regardless of how many years have passed since purchase.
This could indicate a malfunction with charging, such as when full charges drain away quickly even after minimal usage.
If the problem lies with the battery, rechargeable batteries can be replaced.

How often do I have to replace the brush head of my electric toothbrush?
Electric toothbrushes are divided into a brush head section and body section. When it comes to replacing the brush head section, simply wait until the brush bristle tips fall apart - this will reduce their brushing effect by half.
What are the warning signs that an electric toothbrush has reached its end of its usefulness?
Signs that your electric toothbrush may be near its end of life include sudden stopping while using, strange noises during usage, failure to recharge etc.
If you experience anything unusual with it, stop using it immediately and follow the instructions provided.

Don't leave anything behind in the bathroom
If you're in the habit of brushing your teeth in the shower, having a toothbrush handy can be very convenient.
Recently, electric toothbrushes have been released that can be cleaned with water but some aren't waterproof.
Electric toothbrushes and chargers that are not waterproof can be damaged by water, so avoid storing them in places such as the bathroom. Furthermore, getting wet during use could result in an electric shock which is dangerous.
Take into account where you store and utilize electric toothbrush to avoid potential water damage and keep it working optimally.

Do Not Disassemble
My battery seems to be draining slowly, indicates that there may be an issue with its charging. Even if you take apart the unit and try to put it back together again, either send it in for repair or purchase a new one.
Electric toothbrushes are delicate appliances, so it is best not to disassemble them for repair - there could be an electric shock risk.
If you must disassemble your device, we suggest sending it in for service or having a new one made if possible.
Don't leave it charged constantly
Electric toothbrush typically takes 12-24 hours to fully charge, which is longer than other appliances.
The low charging current of an electric toothbrush puts less strain on its rechargeable battery, and many manufacturers state that storing it in its charging cradle won't lead to overcharging.
However, you can "activate the rechargeable battery" every six months to extend its lifespan.
Do this by fully charging the battery once and using it without charging until empty.
While leaving your rechargeable battery in its charging cradle is fine under normal conditions, giving it a rest once in awhile will help extend its usefulness.
Don't give it a strong shock
Avoid giving it a strong shock. An electric toothbrush is usually stored in a charging stand. Because it is long and thin, it can fall off if you put it in an unstable place.
To prevent this from happening, we recommend storing it in a stable position where it is less likely to fall.
Also, don't brush too hard on the teeth and gums you care about. Some people press the plastic part instead of the brush to remove stains, but this usage is wrong.
As well as damaging your teeth and gums by brushing the same place for a long time, it can also cause your electric toothbrush to malfunction.
Can I replace the battery in my electric toothbrush myself?
When an electric toothbrush's battery needs replacing, some people attempt to do it themselves instead of sending it in for repair to keep costs down.
Most electric toothbrushes can be taken apart and installed with a Phillips screwdriver or flathead screwdriver, so changing the battery is definitely possible.
Some products are intricately designed and may be difficult to disassemble; battery replacement can be tricky; if you are unsure, consider sending the item in for repair or purchasing a new battery.
