What is the biggest difference between ISSA 2 and ISSA 3?
ISSA 3 features 2x stronger silicone bristles that are extra durable and ultra-flexible so they bounce back for reduced breakage while lasting even longer. Also, the slim-fit design of ISSA 3 helps you reach each nook and cranny of the mouth while covering teeth & gums in one stroke. On top of that, ISSA 3 features softer sonic pulses and low-battery indicator light to remind you to give your brush a quick 2-hours USB charge.
How do I brush my teeth with ISSA 3?
Use the suggested amount of your favorite toothpaste. Press the universal button to turn on your ISSA 3, (you can use the +/- buttons to adjust the intensity to your preferred setting). Brush your teeth in the same way you would with a manual toothbrush. ISSA 3 will prompt you to brush a new quadrant of the mouth every 30 seconds. For a full-mouth clean, turn your brush around and use the back of the brush head to gently scrub the tongue and cheeks. Turn off your toothbrush by pressing the universal button again, (your toothbrush will turn off automatically after 3 mins). Then rinse your mouth and clean your ISSA 3 under running water.
How often should I replace my ISSA 3 brush head?
ISSA 3 brush heads are made to last up to 6 months, so they are more environmentally friendly than other toothbrush heads which only last for up to 3 months before they need to be replaced.
How will I know when to charge my ISSA 3?
When the indication light at the base of your ISSA 3 turns red, it’s time to charge your toothbrush. Connect the USB charging cable to any outlet for 2 hours. When the indicator light stops blinking, your ISSA 3 is fully charged.
How do I clean my ISSA 3?
Clean the device after each use by washing the brush with warm water while running your fingers through the bristles. We recommend using FOREO Silicone Cleaning Spray on the body of your ISSA 3 and rinsing with warm water afterward for optimal results. Allow your toothbrush to air-dry. We do not recommend placing ISSA 3 in a UV sanitation case.
NOTE: Never use cleaning products containing alcohol, petrol or acetone. Avoid using toothpaste with bleach on your device.
