Are Electric Toothbrushes Really Better?

We are sure that you have noticed the takeover in the oral hygiene aisle at your local grocery store, pharmacy or target that there has been an invasion of electric toothbrush and accessories. That is because they work and provide a number of benefits over a standard manual toothbrush. Of course, you may spend a couple of extra bucks with the initial purchase of an electric toothbrush, but it will be worth it in the long run. If you smile could, we are positive that it would thank you for using an electric toothbrush and here is why.

  • Functionality
    • From the moment it power on, an electric toothbrush is already doing more than a manual toothbrush. It not only vibrates, as most electric toothbrushes are oscillating, meaning that it rotates. It provides a superior ability to break up the plaque with vibrating and then rotating to clear it away.
  • Features
    • Built-In Timers
      • Majority of patients who use manual toothbrushes, do not brush their teeth long enough. Most electric toothbrushes come with built-in timers that will help ensure that you brush your teeth long enough.
  • Pressure Sensors
    • Features
      •  Another problem that most patients suffer from brushing too hard. Brushing too hard will damage your gums and the enamel on your teeth. Most electric toothbrushes come built in with pressure sensors which will notify you when you are applying too much force while brushing.

    • Different Modes
      • Electric toothbrushes do the work for you, and now they even change vibrations and rotations based on which part of your mouth that you are brushing. For example, most electric toothbrushes offer different modes such as deep cleaning and tongue cleaning. Simply select each mode as it is appropriate, and let the electric toothbrush do the work.
