|Rechargeable electric toothbrushes have become quite popular over the years, for good reason. They provide greater plaque removal, especially in comparison to a regular, manual toothbrush.
This is because they perform the brushing action for you. Of course, they also offer a lot of other great options too. As such, you can easily find an electric toothbrush that will suit your specific needs.
Should You Upgrade Your Toothbrush?There was a study done that discovered that electric toothbrushes remove more plaque.
It also discovered that this reduces gingivitis more effectively than a manual toothbrush does.
This is because of the electric toothbrush's rotating oscillation action. Instead of depending on your own hand to move the toothbrush back and forth along your teeth, the electric toothbrush performs this cleaning action for you.
Your only job is to simply guide the toothbrush across the surface of your teeth, which is a lot less work and a lot easier for you to do too. This is especially true if you have a condition like arthritis that makes brushing your teeth painful for your hands.
They're not the only ones who will benefit here though. Children are also much more effective at brushing their teeth when they use an electric toothbrush if you choose one that's well-suited for their age.
There are also some electric toothbrushes that help you improve your brushing habits. This is because they contain brushing modes for things like sensitive teeth and gum issues or to tell you if you've brushed long enough. Pressure sensors are also available to tell you when you're brushing too hard.
Clearly, an electric toothbrush is the best choice today. However, with so many options, it's easy to get confused about what toothbrush to choose. So, when you're ready to choose an electric toothbrush, reach out to us and we'll gladly answer any questions you may have.
