How does the Colgate Motion toothbrush work?
The battery powered Colgate Motion toothbrush has two types of bristles. The oscillating bristles are designed to clean deep between teeth and along the gumline. The stationary bi-level bristles are meant to gently whisk away plaque.
How does the Colgate Motion toothbrush compare with electric toothbrushes?
Colgate Motion cleans like an electric toothbrush. Advantage is, being battery powered one does not need to re-charge hence it is more convenient for travelling.
How long should I brush?
Brushing should take approximately 2 minutes, the same amount of time as it would if using a manual toothbrush. The best way to brush is to:
  • Start at one of the back molars and brush the outside of the teeth first
  • Hold the brush parallel to the teeth and clean each tooth individually while avoiding exerting too much pressure
  • Proceed to clean the inside of the teeth
  • Finally, clean the biting edge of the teeth
Should I jiggle or use a brushing motion with the Colgate Motion toothbrush or just hold it on each tooth?
There is no need to jiggle the toothbrush. Colgate Motion is designed to allow you to brush as you would any other manual toothbrush (regular brushing motion).

A child over the age of 3 can use the Colgate Motion toothbrush, but we recommend adult supervision for children under 3 years of age, as stated on our packaging.

Are there other bristles (soft/hard) available for the Colgate Motion toothbrush?
