Questions and AnswersQ: Does the hyG-2 IONIC Toothbrush move or vibrate?
A: No, it is an IONIC toothbrush that is used just like a regular manual toothbrush.
Q: How does it remove plaque?
A: Normally, your teeth have a negative polarity. Plaque has an opposite or positive polarity, causing it to cling to your teeth. (This is the same natural phenomenon that attracts dust to surfaces in your home.) The hyG-2 Ionic toothbrush breaks this ionic bond by temporarily reversing the polarity of tooth surfaces as you brush. The plaque's molecules are then repelled by the teeth and drawn to the negatively polarized bristles of the hyG-2 toothbrush.
Q: Is hyG-2 based on a new technology?
A: Actually, hyG-2 was inspired by a technology called "iontophoresis" that dentists have used for more than a century to promote dental health. hyG-2 is a compact, economical handheld descendant of the equipment used in your dentist's office.
Q: Is the hyG-2 IONIC Toothbrush safe
A: Before hyG-2 was introduced to the United States, studies in Japan and America showed that its IONIC Action was a safe and effective process for removing plaque from plaque-prone tooth surfaces. More than 20,000,000 hyG-2 toothbrushes have already been sold in Japan, England, Switzerland, and other countries.
Q: Do I have to plug it in?
A: The hyG-2 IONIC Toothbrush is self-contained. The sealed waterproof handle contains a lithium power source.
Q: What will I feel when I brush my teeth with hyG-2?
A: Brushing with hyG-2 feels no different than using an ordinary toothbrush. However, users have told us that their mouths taste fresher after brushing with hyG-2 - even without using toothpaste! (If you brush without flavored toothpaste, you may aso notice an almost imperceptible metallic taste caused by hyG-2's ionic cleaning of tarnish from your fillings.)
Q: How will I know that hyG-2 is working for me?
A: Results vary from person to person. Many users report a new feeling of cleanliness after several brushings. (This is particularly noticeable for smokers.) You may notice that your teeth's edges feel sharp instead of slippery, as if you'd visited a dental hygienist. Your dentist may mention that your teeth look smoother and cleaner, with less tartar and calculus to require scraping and scaling at your dental check-up.
Q: Will hyG-2 work with caps, crowns, bridges, and braces?
A: he added benefit of enhancing plaque removal through IONIC action in plaque-prone areas that are hard to reach with a toothbrush.
Q: Do you have any tips on how to use the hyG-2 IONIC Toothbrush?
A: Brush as you would with an ordinary manual toothbrush, following your dentist's guidelines. Just remember to keep any finger or your palm on the handle's metal band. This is necessary for IONIC plaque release to occur. A wet finger or palm ensures maximum effectiveness.
Q: Is the hyG-2 power source replaceable?
A: The hyG-2 battery is located in a patented, sealed, waterproof compartment. To replace the battery would require breaking the waterproof seal - adversely affecting performance and future battery life. The battery should last around two years in normal use, then a new hyG-2 power source handle is required.
Q: Can I share the hyG-2 toothbrush with other members of my family?
A: You can share hyG-2's Power Source handle, with each family member using a separate interchangable brush head. Always rinse the entire brush carefully before changing heads and before storing hyG-2.

A: Replacement heads are available in convenient packs of two. Three bristle hardnesses are available:
* Medium - for those who prefer a firmer brush.
* Soft - recommende by most dentists.
* SuperSoft - for children and users with sensitive gums.
