How do I operate this toothbrush?
Brush twice a day for 2 minutes each time. Wet the brush and apply a generous amount of toothpaste (any toothpaste), long-press the button, and then short-press to choose your preferred setting.

Wash it under running water, and store or charge for the next time.
Should I brush differently with ToothWave?
DentalRF™ effect of ToothWave doesn’t rely on mechanical action, but rather on electrochemical principals. The toothpaste acts as a vital DentalRF™ agent, which means that a generous amount of toothpaste should be applied. DentalRF™ works without vigorous brushing. Brush gently, applying a manual brushing technique. Pay particular attention to Tartar buildup and stains. When spotted, place TW steadily (RF without vibration) on the problematic spot for extra 30 sec.
What is this DentalRF technology?
DentalRFTM patented technology is a dental care concept recognizing that mechanical brushing is not the only option in tackling stubborn impurities, and that well established electrochemical principles can also be employed to the task.
Will I feel anything different?
To many first-time users, ToothWave’s bristles and vibrations feel more gentle.
The brush bristles are softer, and therefore the mechanical action sensation is less noticeable.
Lastly, when using ToothWave the toothpaste tends to form more foam in the mouth.
Are my teeth bleached to make them whiter?
No, Silk'n ToothWave does not bleach your teeth. The DentalRF™ technology in Silk'n ToothWave reduces stains and discolouration, revealing the original shade of the teeth - resulting in overall teeth whitening.

How many settings does it have?

How many vibrating brush strokes does it make?
Silk'n ToothWave delivers 48,000 vibrating brush strokes per minute. Because the DentalRF™ technology does all the hard work by reducing dental impurities from the tooth surface, this device works perfectly with this number of brush strokes.
What is the 30 second interval timer for?
After every 30 seconds, the brush automatically indicates that you can switch to the next section of your mouth. This function helps you clean each section as thoroughly as the previous one and for the same amount of time. After 2 minutes, the brushing time recommended by dentists, ToothWave stops automatically so you know you're done.
Does it work on batteries?
No, Silk'n ToothWave does not work on batteries. It is charged by an inductive charging cradle that is included in the package.
Can I use any type of brush head?
No, Silk'n ToothWave includes specially designed, innovative brush heads that are not available in other brands. The brush head contains soft bristles, 2 DentalRF™ electrodes and a silicone strip that lies between the electrodes. The silicone strip enables the DentalRF™ wave to flow across the teeth. It also ensures that the toothpaste and the DentalRF™ energy interact effectively. For this reason, we recommend that the bristles are always in good contact with the teeth.
Why is the brush head made from soft bristles?
Silk'n ToothWave has soft bristles to protect the teeth and gums. Hard bristles are abrasive and are more likely to damage the enamel on your teeth and can cause receding gums. This can lead to sensitive teeth and deteriorating oral health. Besides, Silk'n ToothWave does not need harder bristles. Its DentalRF™ technology does all the hard work by reducing impurities like plaque, discolouration, stains and even tartar from the tooth surface1. In turn, the soft bristles ensure that these impurities are swept away non-abrasively.
Can I buy new brush heads?
Yes, new refill brush heads can be purchased. Silk'n advices to replace your brush head every 3 months or sooner if needed.
I feel pain during or after use. Is this normal?
If you feel pain, you may have cavities or any teeth condition that requires dental treatment. If you do feel pain, consult your dentist. Stop using the device if you experience excessive bleeding after use, or if bleeding continues after one week of regular use.
