The RADIUS Original toothbrush is American Dental Association “accepted” for prevention of gingivitis and removal of plaque. The Original has an ergonomically designed handle that is available in right or left hand for accurate and improved brushing.
The ORIGINAL RADIUS Toothbrush! It all started with the ORIGINAL!Why is the head so big?
Good question! The Original has such a large head because it’s not your ordinary toothbrush…it’s an entire MOUTHBRUSH! The wide massaging head helps reduce chronic bleeding and receding gums. When you brush your teeth, you want to include your gums as well and the Original makes sure that you’re reaching your entire mouth.
What about the bristles?
It’s all about the bristles. There are 300% more bristles than competitors and they have a non-aligned layout to avoid tooth erosion. The Original has soft, premium bristles that are spread evenly over the large head for even applied pressure. You won’t be neglecting any teeth with the Original!
Can I purchase the Original with a medium bristle?
The Original is only available with a soft bristle.
Why does it look so different from every other toothbrush?
When you see the large head and angled neck…you know it can only be a RADIUS! The beautiful, award-winning design of the Original has a right or left ergonomic handle that ensures the dentist recommended 45 º angle of the bristles to teeth. The Easy-Grip Thumb and Palm design will reduce slippage while brushing and create an enjoyable brushing experience!
I’m left handed, can I use the Original?
Of course you can! You can purchase a right or left handed Original.
How long does the Original last?
The wear and tear of a toothbrush really depends on the user and their brushing habits. Take into account how often you use your toothbrush and if you’re considered a hard brusher. The Original lasts approximately 3x longer than an ordinary toothbrush and can last up to 9 months.
Can I choose my colors when ordering a 3 pack or 6 pack?
If color is of importance, we recommend purchasing the Original at the single price level, this will ensure that you will receive a specific color. When purchasing a 3 pack or 6 pack, the colors will come in an assortment only. The packs are preassembled and color choice is not an option.
Will I receive 1 of every color in a 6 pack?
Color combinations are based upon inventory at the time of packaging. RADIUS cannot guarantee any color combination or that you will receive 1 of every color. Please note that you may receive double of a color in the assortment and colors are subject to change.
How often should I change my toothbrush?
This really is based upon personal preference. RADIUS recommends changing your toothbrush when the bristles start to lay over or fray.
How can I sanitize or clean my toothbrush?
The Original should not go in the dishwasher. The high temperatures of the dishwasher will melt the cellulose plastic. RADIUS recommends cleaning your toothbrush in a solution that is 50/50 water and hydrogen peroxide. Let the toothbrush sit in this mixture for approximately 10-15 minutes and then rinse thoroughly.
What do dentists and orthodontists have to say?

Can I recycle the Original?
Absolutely! The Original handle is a #7 plastic and can be recycled. Unfortunately the head of the toothbrush cannot be recycled due to the metal staples that are used to hold the bristles securely in place. In order to recycle the Original, the head would need to be cut off and thrown away while the handle can be recycled.
