This Oral Clean electric suction toothbrush from Bluereo is ideal for those who need help with oral hygiene and/or have a compromised swallow (dysphagia). Daily oral hygiene is important to maintain good oral health, overall health and well being.
This is the world’s first electric suction toothbrush and provides simple innovative oral care for people who need extra help with toothbrushing. Some people are unable to practice effective oral hygiene due to sickness, disability or injury. This handy electric suction toothbrush can improve oral hygiene, oral health and well being. It is suitable for all settings including home, residential care or hospital.
Carers are often concerned about brushing others teeth, worrying that they may do more harm than good, especially if there are swallowing issues or concerns about choking. Our friends at Knowledge Oral Health Care introduced us to this brush and we agree – its a game changer! We are living longer, often with some or all of our teeth which require daily oral care. This can become challenging as chronic illness impacts our ability to carry out personal care activities independently. This toothbrush can improve oral hygiene routines for those aiming to be independent and also increases confidence of caregivers.
The brush is suitable for anyone with dysphagia (swallowing difficulties). e.g. those with dementia, neuro disability, nil by mouth or have any oral hypersensitivity. (KOHC 2021). It is lightweight with sonic movement of its super soft bristles (14000 times per minute). The LED light illuminates the mouth through the transparent brush head helping with correct bristle placement at the gumline to clean all surfaces of every tooth. It has a smooth sonic movement which makes the noise low while effectively cleaning teeth and gums – even for those who are hypersensitive. The suction hole is located in the brush head where saliva/water is gently suctioned via the soft tube attached to the bottom of the brush to the detachable bag. The bag has a strap which may be hung around the neck of the carer. A wrist strap may be attached to the brush.
The antibacterial brush bristles provide hygienic oral care as the suction (500 ml per minute) ensures water from inside the mouth is removed via the suction hole on the top of the brush head.. The brush heads can be replaced to use on different individuals. The foldable bottle is easily washed after use.

Two operational modes – See image gallery.
SINGLE MODE i.e., button pushed on, vibration and suction is toggled = Sonic brush function then suction work alternatively.
DUAL MODE, push button for 3 seconds. Vibration and suction operate simultaneously, and push again, G100 turns off.
Many opt to use vibration and suction function at the same time, so DUAL MODE has been added to the earlier model.
Growing Smiles user tips
Aim to brush at a suitable time. Ideally this will be last thing at night before sleeping and one other time each day – but this may depend on cooperation and making the task acceptable. This may be at some other time of the day.
See it in use here.
Place the bristles along the gum line where tooth and gum meet. The sonic bristles will move to clean plaque biofilm at this important area. Aim to clean the outside, inside and biting surface of all teeth and the gum line. No need to rinse after brushing as any fluoride paste left will work to protect teeth and gums. Seek advice from your dental team or Growing Smiles coach to ensure effective use. Book a call with a Growing Similes oral health coaches here.
