Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What makes the Colgate 360 Toothbrush unique?

A: Colgate 360 has a unique cheek and tongue cleaner located on the back of the toothbrush head that helps remove over 96% more bacteria than brushing teeth alone with an ordinary manual toothbrush. It also has specially tapered bristles, a cleaning tip and dentist-like polishing cups that help remove more plaque and stains than the leading manual toothbrush.

Q: What are the features of the Colgate 360 toothbrush that give you a whole mouth clean?

A: The cheek and tongue cleaner removes bacteria. The inter-dental bristles clean between teeth and along the gum line. The polishing cups help gently remove stains on teeth. The cleaning tip gets to hard-to-reach areas..

Q: How does the cheek and tongue cleaner on the back of the brush head work?

A: The surface of your tongue is like skin: the dead cells need to be sloughed off to allow the healthy new skin to come through. The raised cleansing texture of the cheek and tongue cleaner loosens odor-causing residue on the tongue. It also helps to cleanse the inner cheeks—another hiding place for odor-causing bacteria.

Q: How do I clean the cheek and tongue cleaner?

A: Simply rinse the back of the toothbrush head thoroughly as you would rinse the toothpaste from the bristles of your toothbrush.
