ARM & HAMMER™ Spinbrush™
Power toothbrushes safely remove plaque with twice daily brushing, and remove more plaque than manual brushes. The benefits of ARM & HAMMER™ Spinbrush™ include effective plaque removal and a pleasant brushing experience. In combination with ARM & HAMMER™ baking soda toothpaste, the benefits extend to gentle, deep cleaning and fresher breath for adults and children.
Gentle, Effective Plaque Removal
ARM & HAMMER™ Spinbrush™ Truly Radiant™ Toothbrushes are proven to remove up to 100% more plaque than an ordinary manual toothbrush and up to five times more plaque in hard-to-reach places*. Spinbrush™ Toothbrushes for Adults use a unique dual-action brush technology with an oscillating circular brush head as well as vertical bristles which work together to remove more plaque from the gingival margins.
The advanced technology and design of the new Spinbrush™ Truly Radiant™ Power Toothbrushes includes elongated access bristles in the circular brush head for superior plaque removal and whitening bristles for superior stain removal. The posterior brush head has elongated access bristles for greater reach into hard-to-reach places, and the Spinbrush™ Truly Radiant™ Extra Whitening includes a whitening cup for enhanced stain removal. Spinbrush™ Truly Radiant™ Power Toothbrushes remove 100% more plaque than a manual toothbrush and five times more plaque from hard-to-reach places.
The sonic technology of the Spinbrush™ ProClean™ SONIC Toothbrush generates dynamic fluid action between teeth to remove up to 95% of plaque in hard-to-reach places.*
ARM & HAMMER™ Spinbrush™ Kid's Power Toothbrushes are proven to increase the amount of time kids spend brushing their teeth by 38%† by making brushing fun. Spinbrush™ GLŌBRUSH™ changes color when it is time to brush a new quadrant of the mouth and shuts off after 2 minutes, helping kids and teens brush longer. After just one brushing for the recommended 2 minutes, plaque reductions in pre-teens and teens (age 13-17) were significantly greater for whole mouth plaque as well as in difficult-to-reach sites when they used the GLŌBRUSH™ vs. a manual toothbrush. Almost 75% more plaque was removed in posterior lingual sites* (some of the most difficult-to-reach sites).

The goal of this study was to compare plaque reductions after a single brushing with one of two new powered toothbrushes (Spinbrush™ Truly Radiant™ Deep Clean; Spinbrush™ Truly Radiant™ Extra Whitening) or an ADA standard manual toothbrush control. Subjects were randomly provided with one of the brushes and a regular fluoride toothpaste, and told to brush for 2 minutes twice a day for 1 week to accustom them to the brush. Then after 12-16 hours with no oral hygiene, and without drinking, eating or smoking for 4 hours, subjects returned to the study site. Baseline plaque scores were assessed using the Rustogi modification of the Navy Plaque Index and measured again immediately after subjects had brushed using the same brush for 2 minutes under supervision. This process was repeated with each of the other 2 brushes, with subjects attending for baseline and post-brushing plaque measurements after a 1-week accustomization period each time. The sequence of brush use for each phase was randomized. 65 of 67 subjects completed the study (24 males and 41 females, mean ages 34.5 and 45.0 years respectively). Statistically significant plaque reductions were observed for all three brushes following the single brushing (p<0.001), with significantly greater whole mouth plaque reductions observed for the powered toothbrushes (139.2% greater for the Spinbrush™ Truly Radiant™ Deep Clean brush and 114.6% greater for the Spinbrush™ Truly Radiant™ Extra Whitening brush) (p<0.001). There were no statistically significant differences in plaque reduction for the two powered toothbrushes in interproximal or difficult-to-reach areas. Significantly greater plaque reductions were also observed for both powered toothbrushes in all categories of sites measured for the plaque index, especially interproximally and in difficult-to-reach areas (>400% for interproximal sites and >1300% in posterior lingual interproximal sites), compared to the manual brush (p<0.001).

The goal of the study was to compare plaque reductions following a single brushing with a powered children’s toothbrush (Spinbrush™ GLŌBRUSH™) or a manual toothbrush. 105 subjects (52 were ages 8-12 and 53 were ages 13-17) were randomly provided with one of the brushes and a regular fluoride dentifrice and told to brush for two minutes twice a day for one week so that they would become accustomed to the brushes. Then after 24 hours without any oral hygiene, baseline plaque scores were assessed using the Rustogi modification of the Navy Plaque Index and then measured again immediately after two minutes of brushing. Three subjects did not complete the study. Statistically significant plaque reductions were found for both brushes following the single brushing (p<0.0001). Significantly greater plaque reductions at whole mouth (12.8%) and at difficult-to-reach sites (74.9% at posterior lingual areas near the gingival margin) were seen with the powered toothbrush (p<0.0001).
