How to use


Brush gently at a 45-degree angle using a light circular motion, paying close attention to getting under the gumline.

Instruction on how to use a toothbrush? Really? Well...yes. Most of us were only shown once by a dentist or hygienist as a kid. And those instructions may have missed two key parts — the angle to hold the brush and the optimal brush to use.

Unlike most toothbrushes, our toothbrush encourages a light touch. Its shorter handle is designed to be held by a just few fingers vs a fist. Subtle, but important. And with an intentional design of fewer bristles — ours has 192 bristles vs the hundreds (sometimes thousands) found in typical brushes — it is far more effective at cleaning under the gumline.


Fingertip control encourages a lighter touch and offers greater precision. This makes it easier to direct the toothbrush head throughout your mouth and along the gumline where many oral health issues occur if not properly cared for.

The Bass Method


Way back in the 1940’s Dr Charles C Bass developed a simple yet highly effective method for brushing teeth referred to as “The Bass Method.” To this day it is viewed by most 
dentists as the best method for effectively brushing teeth and optimal oral health.

 

A good video to learn this proven, simple technique can be found here  (The video adds in a step to brush away from the gum line — this is called “The Modified Bass”.)

Better than you think!

I'm sure it can be said that a toothbrush is a toothbrush is a toothbrush. And you would mostly be right. But there is something about this toothbrush.. the bristles.. the feel of the brush itself.. it really does get under the gums and cleans the teeth in a superior way. I'll be ordering more for sure!

Better for the environment

Smoother than expected. Feels like a normal toothbrush, but like it much more since its so much better for the environment.

Hands-down the best toothbrush I’ve ever used.

I used to use an Oral-B electric brush with the understanding that would be best for my receding gums and cleaning teeth. Then I discovered the Bass designed toothbrush several years ago and have never gone back — along with using Akamai's Mineral toothpaste my gums are now totally healthy -- receding stopped and no more gingivitis.

Akamai has made by far and away the best Bass design toothbrush available. Love the fact it’s made out of bamboo and the head snaps off to compost the handle.

The bristle quality and stiffness is also outstanding. Well done Akamai!!

Love it - small but mighty!

I have to admit I was skeptical before I tried it. It’s smaller and lighter than the typical toothbrush, so looks and feels very different. But when I tried it I was super impressed! My teeth felt cleaner than usual with less effort. It takes a little getting used to the design, but once you do, it’s obvious that the mass market toothbrushes are big and unnecessary - just more of the same - selling us dumb plastic stuff we don’t need.

And, bonus! The head breaks off so you can compost the handle - such a great details. Way to go Akamai! We need more companies thinking like this!

Compostable? Awesome

Love the layout of the bristles in this version of a bamboo brush. I am so happy it can be composted, and appreciate how long it lasts.

Awesome Brush

Bought a pack of these for me to try. Wow easily hands down the best toothbrush I have used. It feels good in hand and even better on your teeth. Pair this with the Akamai mineral toothpaste and bam .....party in your mouth.

Stiff bristles clean off tarter and plaque

Toothpaste is only half the solution, you have to own a good toothbrush. I have used these several times and yes, they are stiff, but really leaves my teeth feeling extra clean and remove the plaque and tarter.
