The CURAPROX Hydrosonic toothbrush

Clean has never been so gentle. Especially where it matters: along the gum line and in hidden niches. Even between the teeth.

The Hydrosonic story

«As often happens, it all started by chance: At Zurich’s main station, among all the people bustling to catch their trains during rush hour, I met Professor Ueli Saxer. He had time to sit down for a coffee and so we talked in the “Au premier” restaurant about the proper way to clean teeth. I was curious because Ueli Saxer had been deeply involved in the topic of sonic toothbrushes.

Of course I had an ulterior motive. Is it possible, I asked Ueli Saxer, to make a sonic toothbrush that’s better than all the others already available? Yes, said Ueli Saxer, by using the right brush head.

So here it is – our first jointly developed brush head. Good luck with your start into a new era of oral hygiene.»

Good reasons

Manual toothbrushes generally clean just as well as electric toothbrushes, if used correctly, however there are now more reasons for looking to use the CURAPROX Hydrosonic. It doesn’t matter if there are complicated tooth alignments, braces, implants, difficult to clean bridges – with the Hydrosonic there is no longer anything that’s difficult to clean. People who also have difficulty with fine motor skills will also find that brushing with the Hydrosonic is a major help.

Useful helpers - This is the hydrodynamic effect

This is the hydrodynamic effect

«Hydro» means «water»; «dynamic» is also from the Greek and means «force» or «power». In fact, it’s not just the bristles that do the cleaning but also the mixture of saliva, water and toothpaste, which are all in the mouth when brushing. The power of 32,000 strokes per minute creates turbulences in the water in the mouth, and this has so much force that this oral fluid finds its way into the interdental spaces, niches and periodontal pockets where it swishes away plaque and bacteria. The swirling bristles thus force this oral fluid to go exactly where it is of importance – but where the bristles cannot reach on their own. – This not only benefits oral health but also health in general: the fact that the periodontal pockets are also cleaned in particular because of this effect can even reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases: bacteria are flushed out of the periodontal pockets and so do not enter the bloodstream.

Amazingly few sonic toothbrushes have it: the hydrodynamic effect. The independent «Sonic hydrodynamic task force» recommends the CURAPROX Hydrosonic as one of the very few sonic toothbrushes that actually has this effect – and thus also cleans where the bristles cannot reach: in interdental spaces and periodontal pockets as well as in the niches in implants and braces.

Why is the Hydrosonic different from other sonic toothbrushes?

Arguably sonic toothbrushes are the most efficient and convenient aids to clean teeth, however there are already considerable numbers of these products on the market, so which one is for you? The one of the most important parts of a toothbrush, manual or electric, is in its head and the bristles used. The Hydrosonic uses incredibly soft and fine CUREN® filaments which are ultimately responsible for the decisive difference.

What does the Hydrosonic toothbrush offer?

Cleaning with a manual toothbrush is not all that easy unless you know the right technique, and who can honestly say they know what this is? All too often, manual tooth brushing results in scrubbing back and forth with far too much pressure, causing actual damage by ineffective cleaning. In comparison the CURAPROX Hydrosonic ensures that both teeth and gums are efficiently cleaned both gently and softly.

Whether right at the very back, behind the last molar, or at the very front, on the inside of the incisor, below the wire. How can these areas be accessed and cleaned properly? The one answer: the perfect CURACURVE® bend makes this possible. It’s child’s play. The other answer: the drop-like design of the “sensitive” and “power” heads guarantees perfect cleaning results in all areas. After all, Prof. Ulrich P. Saxer designed these brush heads to enable them to reach and surround every single tooth. The result: optimal cleaning.

Useful helpers - CUREN® bristles: particularly gentle and effective for optimal prophylaxis

CUREN® bristles: particularly gentle and effective for optimal prophylaxis

Fact: most bristles in conventional sonic toothbrushes have a diameter of 0.2 millimetres. Ours are a maximum of 0.152 millimetres – fine and gentle. And they are made of CUREN® instead of nylon, which has a significant benefit: CUREN® hardly absorbs any water, so performance remains constant. Thanks to the droplet-shaped arrangement, the bristles wrap around each individual tooth, cleaning it more effectively. What’s more, they’re wonderfully soft – even with 42,000 brush strokes per minute. This means the particularly critical spots are cleaned better:

  • your gumline
  • any periodontal pockets
  • between your teeth
  • hidden niches
  • around implants
  • dental braces and brackets

Handle with 45-degree ergonomics

When brushing teeth it is vital that the gum line is cleaned too, but in most cases this is not achieved as holding the brush at the correct angle is often difficult. The Hydrosonic makes this easy as it has depressions on its handle that ensures the angle the brush approaches the teeth and gums is correct, so perfect results can be achieved each and every time you brush.

CURAPROX Hydrosonic is also recommended for young teeth ensuring effective cleaning right from the start. In the early years children’s motor skills are not yet fully developed and brushing with a manual toothbrush often leaves many areas untouched. Thanks to sonic technology and CUREN® filaments, children can now achieve far greater brushing success. Experience has shown us that children brush for longer and are happier with their brushing experience with a Hydrosonic toothbrush, opposed to simply scrubbing back and forth at full force with a manual toothbrush. Ensure their teeth get off to the right start.

Useful helpers - For implants and braces

For implants and braces

In particular, wearers of implants or braces benefit from Hydrosonic’s cleaning performance, as they need to pay particular attention to their oral hygiene. There are many extra crevices that need careful cleaning and the Hydrosonic is ideal for this: it accesses the critical places and cleans them gently and carefully. Instead of worry lines due to a lack of oral health, people have a smile on their face, a smile of pleasure at having sparkling clean teeth, implants and braces.

Useful helpers - … and CURAPROX enzycal toothpaste

… and CURAPROX enzycal toothpaste

Enzycal toothpaste is a particularly mild toothpaste that is gentle on teeth, gums and oral mucosa. People who wish to avoid irritating and controversial toothpaste ingredients will at last be pleased to find that enzycal is the perfect choice, without a mouth ulcer in sight.


In addition Enzycal toothpaste does not foam as much as other toothpastes making it an ideal partner for our sonic toothbrushes.   The sonic waves are not hampered by the foam but spread out unhindered. This is how sonic toothbrushes can truly exploit their benefits: thanks to sonic waves, they also clean where other filaments cannot reach.
