FDA Issues Important Warnings for Dentistry

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently issued a safety warning on the use of the Spinbrush® advising patients that these electric toothbrushes may be associated with dental injuries due to damaged/loose bristles, loose connections, and product misuse.

The FDA advises consumers to supervise children and adults needing assistance using this product, and refrain from biting down on the brush head while operating the toothbrush.

The Spinbrush line of electric toothbrushes is currently sold as the Arm & Hammer® Spinbrush, and until 2009, was sold as the Crest® Spinbrush.
