How do you kick-start a day?
Let me guess. You may start it with a cup of coffee.
Am I right? If yes, you must be a coffee lover. And you might have realized that your morning coffee affects your dental health.
It’s easy for us to be aware of the stains on our clothes immediately, but nearly impossible to see the stains on the teeth after a sip of coffee.
As coffee can stain our clothes, it can stain our teeth because coffee contains tannins, which cause color compounds to stick to your teeth.
When these compounds stick, they can leave an unwanted yellow hue behind. How terrible it only takes one cup of coffee a day to cause stained teeth.
So, is there any solution to avoid tooth discoloration or dental health problems if we keep enjoying our favorite morning drink?
Here come 5 tips for preventing coffee stains:
1. No cream and sugar. Because these will speed up the growth of discoloring bacteria from the coffee.
2. Drink coffee through a straw. According to the dentist, this will keep coffee from touching your teeth, avoiding any chance of unwanted stains.
3. Drink a glass of water to rinse your mouth and teeth after finishing your coffee.
4. Eat some raw fruits and vegetables, such as strawberries and lemons. They contain natural fibers which allow them to clean teeth by breaking down the bacteria.
5. Brush your teeth about 30 minutes after drinking coffee.
Coffee is easy to stick to the tongue and cause bad breath. So, you should consider replacing a manual toothbrush with an electric toothbrush, and use a tongue scraper and whitening toothpaste to get a better cleaning effect.
If necessary, brush your teeth with baking soda twice a month to further whiten your stained teeth.
If you have no idea which electric toothbrush to choose, I would like to introduce the 360 ORACLEEN T1 electric toothbrush to you. It’s exactly intended for coffee lovers. If you are in a hurry, it’s okay to leave now. If you have enough time within 2 minutes, why not read on?
Why would I recommend 360 ORACLEEN T1?
ღ Extremely low price - it only costs $29.99 (around 6 cups of coffee)
ღ High-frequency sonic vibration with 40,000 strokes per minute
ღ Comes with a tongue scraper
ღ 20 seconds interval timer for thorough brushing (the common is 30 seconds)
ღ Other common features: smart pressure sensor, 5 cleaning modes, 2 minutes timer, IPX7 waterproof, 45 days battery life, angled brush head, rechargeable
From the above features, you can see 360 ORACLEEN T1 almost has all the features (except for the APP control) as Ocelan One, Oral-B and Philips Sonicare, but it costs under $30.
When it comes to the Bluetooth APP control, I could tell you it’s not necessary because you might never open the APP after you have downloaded for a week (That’s exactly what my sister did).
Different from the most electric toothbrushes of 30 seconds interval timer, 360 ORACLEEN T1 adopts a 20-second interval timer to remind you of moving to another space of your mouth, so that you will not miss any teeth and then clean throughout your mouth.
The vibration of 40,000 strokes per minute removes more plaque than a manual toothbrush. Meanwhile, 360 ORACLEEN T1 vibrates to break up the debris in your mouth and sweep away bad-breath bacteria.
Thanks to the angled brush head with a tongue scraper, 360 ORACLEEN T1 toothbrush gets access to clean your back teeth and hard-to-reach in between your teeth easily, and the tongue scraper allows you to clean the sticky coffee stains on the tongue. Therefore, your tongue will feel cleaner, and your breath will be fresher.
Oclean One also has a tongue scraper, but it costs $59.99, nearly double than 360 ORACLEEN T1.
If you’re looking for an electric toothbrush to avoid coffee from staining your teeth, 360 ORACLEEN T1 rechargeable sonic toothbrush is the most cost-effective choice.
