At my recent dental appointment, I was informed by my dentist that I put far too much pressure on my teeth and gums, to the point that I have not just eroded the dentin, but also caused cavitation (holes in my teeth caused by my aggressive brushing). After billing me far more than I could afford, she advised me to switch from a manual toothbrush to an electric one, to prevent me from destroying the rest of my teeth.

Needless to say I was devastated, my wallet was empty, and I was very sad, until Zenyum announced the launch of their new Sonic Gentle Clean Brush Heads.

If you are new to the brand, Zenyum, is a dental startup that is focused on transforming dental routines from boring chores into exciting rituals, and their newly launched Sonic Gentle Clean Brush Heads are now available in Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong.

A study commissioned by Zenyum found that more than 50% of respondents were concerned that electric toothbrushes might be too powerful for their gums compared to a manual brush. According to my dentist this is not true, simply because, with an electric toothbrush, you cannot put as much pressure as you would using a manual brush.

Anyway, with this in mind, Zenyum designed their new brush heads to enhance the power of the ZenyumSonic Toothbrush for a gentle, yet effective clean for your gums and smile. The Zenyum Sonic Gentle Clean Brush Heads introduce an upgraded experience from the traditional toothbrush. With features like slim 0.101mm bristles, a u-shaped contour, and a flexible brush neck, these brush heads are designed to provide a superior clean without causing unnecessary pressure or discomfort.

These new brush heads are 34% slimmer than the standard ones, which allows them to reach into those tight spaces, for a more thorough clean. The u-shaped contour is also designed to clean deeper and more efficiently than traditional brush heads, leaving your teeth feeling silky smooth and clean.

Its flexible brush neck reduces pressure on the gums, so I can brush without stressing myself out thinking that I am causing more erosion to my already eroded teeth.

ZenyumSonic™ Gentle Clean Brush Heads which are priced at $21.80 for two pieces, or $43.60 for four pieces, is available for purchase on the Zenyum website and app, Lazada, Shopee, and selected Guardian, Watsons and Cold Storage outlets, and comes in three colours. I obviously got the salmon pink brush, which is seriously so cute, I just want o brush my teeth all the time.
