Oral-B wraps up nationwide oral care campaign with introduction of Deep Sweep power brush
CINCINNATI — Oral-B on Thursday shared the result of their nationwide tour, the WOW Experiment — the Oral-B Deep Sweep power brush.
Testing the Oral-B Deep Sweep 1000 power brush was a family affair at the Oral-B WOW event in Bainbridge Island, Wash., on July 28.
The purpose of the summertime campaign was to encourage consumers to give up their manual toothbrushes and improve their daily oral care routines.
The Oral-B Deep Sweet power brush provides a long-lasting clean feeling and unique triple-cleaning action, according to the company. Sweeping bristles reach deep between teeth and remove up to 100% more plaque compared with a manual toothbrush, helping to prevent and reverse gingivitis.
The Oral-B Deep Sweep power brush is available in several models nationwide at department, retail and specialty stores. To learn more about the product and view videos from the WOW Experiement, visit WOWExperiment.com or the Oral-B Facebook page.
