Why Choose an Electric Toothbrush?

Those who truly take care of their teeth are to be commended! Most of us view the manual toothbrush as good ol’ faithful when it comes to dental care. However, wouldn’t you want to better your oral health if you could? Consider the answers to, “Why choose an Electric Toothbrush?”

1. Removes More Plaque:

When you wake up in the morning with what seems like “sweaters’ on your teeth, you know what plaque is. Unfortunately, if we time and again leave this on our teeth for long periods of time, gum disease and/or tooth decay can result. For further information on this, please read this helpful article! Thus we can see why brushing our teeth, and doing a good job at it, is imperative. This is where an electric toothbrush really outdoes the manual, since the head spins at a faster than your hand with a manual brush ever could.

2. Easier on Your Gums:

A common problem many patients have is receding of the gums. This issue is often caused by their brushing and scrubbing too hard. However, with an electric toothbrush, all you have to do is hold it as it bushes away! Pressure sensors are even available on some, which alerts you when you are brushing too hard.

3. Built-In Timers:

We may say we clean our teeth morning and night, but how thorough are we really? In the rush of things we may not take the recommended 2 minutes to brush our teeth. Thankfully, electric toothbrushes have built it timers so you know your teeth are properly brushed every single time!

4. Easier to Maneuver:

Many find brushing their teeth challenging because of limited mobility caused by carpal tunnel, arthritis, or something else. As was stated previously, an electric toothbrush does all of the work for you. Therefore, less movement of the wrist, hand, ect. is required!
