What kind of a simple machine is a toothbrush?

A toothbrush is not a simple machine, it does not work on the principle of levers, effort, and load.

It's not a machine at all in mathematical terms. A "machine" is that which performs "work", i.e. transfers or converts energy.

You arm moving the toothbrush is a machine by this definition, however.

What are recommendations for toothbrushes and techniques?

I received the sonic care for Christmas and it is great! It has a timer on how long you brush the top front, top back, lower front, and lower back. Each section is 30 seconds, so a total of two minutes. It is costly, but my husband has had fewer cavities, and our teeth feel dentist clean each time. Also, because of the sonic action it cleans the gums better and I have had less gingivitis. Every time I would go to the dentist and he would say I had to floss better, and after having the sonic care for 4 months I went for my check up and he told me that I had 100% improvement on my gums! They also say that after 28 days your teeth are whiter, and it

What are the different toothbrushing techniques?

along with brushing twice a day you must also floss to get between those tight teeth where all the plaque is hiding. there are no real techniques you just brush for two minutes twice a day as well as floss.

I am a dental professional and the only technique to effectively clean all plaque from your mouth daily is to brush twice daily for two minutes each time. Making sure to get each surface (cheek side, tongue side, and biting surface) with a small circular motion. Be sure to focus on the gumline by attempting to massage the 2mm area in between the tooth and gums. This paired with daily flossing (that's right, flossing is ESSENTIAL and not negotiable) in order to get the plaque from in between the teeth that is literally impossible to clean off with a toothbrush should keep the cavities away. Be sure that your toothbrush is relatively small, and ALWAYS use a SOFT BRISTLED one. Although electric toothbrushes have been proven in studies to not be quite as effective, I highly recommend it to children who don't think brushing is much fun. You'd be amazed at how much more fun and easy it is for children or the elderly with limited manual dexterity.

Should you use an electric toothbrush?

oral b vitality i love it

There's not much evidence that electric toothbrushes are better than manual toothbrushes. But it's very clear that they're not worse. In the case of the ones with timers, their biggest benefit is probably just getting you to brush as long as you should (two or three minutes). There is some evidence that electric toothbrushes that spin in both directions, like some made by Oral-B, are better than manual brushes. My dentist recommended a two-speed electric toothbrush. The faster speed is for your teeth, the slower speed is for your gums. You need to be gentle with your gums.

How do you make yourself throw up with your toothbrush?

There are two options to induce vomiting with a toothbrush. One method involves the use of the bristles at the head of the toothbrush, and the other method involves the use of the end of the toothbrush. Both methods are effective to some degree. However, any method to induce vomiting may not work for everyone.

First, with the head of the toothbrush, to induce vomiting you wet the bristles and move the head back and forth on the back of the tongue. When you start gagging do not stop moving it back and forth. Do not remove the toothbrush from your throat until you have stopped vomiting. Be sure that you wash the entire toothbrush thoroughly when you have finished.

Second, with the end of the toothbrush, to induce vomiting you wet the end and move it back and forth on the ridges at the back of your throat. When you start gagging do not stop moving it back and forth. Do not remove the toothbrush from your throat until you have stopped vomiting. Be sure that you wash the entire toothbrush thoroughly when you have finished.

Whether or not you are using either method, after vomiting gargle with warm water mixed with a spoonful of baking soda to neutralize the gastric acids in your mouth before brushing your teeth, flossing, or rinsing with antiseptic mouthwash.
