Why do I need to change my toothbrush every three months?
The American Dental Association recommends changing your brush at least every three months. If you’re getting over a cold or flu, we recommend changing your toothbrush to avoid spreading germs and reintroducing the virus to yourself.
Why are Boka bristles black?
They’re made with Binchotan activated charcoal, which naturally helps prevent bacteria from growing on your brush. The ultra soft bristles provide a gentle, thorough cleaning that doesn’t damage your teeth and gums. They’re also tapered at the top to tackle plaque between your gum-line and teeth. See more here on why we think our bristles are great for a healthy mouth!
Is there a difference between the adult and kids’ brushes?
The kids’ brushes are smaller with rubber-grip handles for kiddie-sized mouths and hands. Brushes are available in the same colors for adults and kids: Mint, Blueberry, Tangerine and Coral.
What electric brushes are your electric toothbrush heads compatible with?
Boka electric toothbrush heads are compatible with most Sonicare electric brushes, including, Sonicare E series Standard, Sonicare Diamond Clean, Sonicare Diamond Clean Compact and Sonicare Pro Results.
What’s in your toothpaste?
Our minty toothpaste is made with natural ingredients and essential oils like peppermint and mint. It contains no sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), fluoride, triclosan, artificial flavors or parabens. For more specifics on our exclusive, natural toothpaste made in the U.S.A. see here.
What’s your floss made of?
Wrapped in natural beeswax, Boka floss glides smoothly and expands between teeth to give you a super-clean mouth and gums. And, you can be sure it’s Teflon-free and petroleum-free!

How do you use or share my information?
Why does a healthier mouth lead to a healthier me?
Today, a growing body of evidence links the mouth to overall body health, especially the cardiovascular and immune systems. Despite the known oral-systemic connection, at least 50% (some estimates are up to 90%) of the country has some form of Periodontal Disease. Our goal is to empower you to take control of the health of your mouth—and ultimately your life—with natural, effective dental products.
Who’s behind bringing a healthier smile to my door?
James Hagen, the president of American Dental, and Zeus Jones, a marketing agency building modern businesses. Both partners are passionate about creating simple, beautiful oral-care products that make your mouth happy for a healthier you. We believe oral care is fun and easy. See more about our team here.
