How an Electric Toothbrush Is Different Than a Manual Toothbrush
An electric toothbrush is a rechargeable or battery-run brush that cleans your teeth with more power and precision than a manual toothbrush. There are plenty of different models of electric toothbrushes available, and some come with various functions like polishing, cleaning, tongue-cleaning, and whitening all in one!
The Benefits of an Electric Toothbrush
- Many dentists believe that electric toothbrushes deliver a more accurate clean of your teeth, since it’s easier to nail down the proper brushing technique every time you brush.
- They’re also gentler on the gums!
- Although an electric toothbrush can’t guarantee a clean bill of oral health, depending on your lifestyle and how frequently you use it, an electric toothbrush will help tremendously with plaque and tartar control.
- Children and elderly patients who have difficulty adopting a proper brushing technique or have a hard time gripping a manual toothbrush can benefit greatly from electric toothbrushes.
The Cost of an Electric Toothbrush
Electric toothbrushes are unsurprisingly more expensive than manual toothbrushes, but there are different types out there to fit your needs and budget, so do your research before buying one. It’s always better to prevent oral health issues than to spend more money fixing them in the future!
