The Benefits Of Using An Electric Toothbrush

Many people are in the fence about electric toothbrushes, they cost more than a manual toothbrush and need a power source. It is a common misconception that a manual toothbrush does the same job as an electric one, this is not entirely true. It has been scientifically proven that an electric toothbrush has many benefits.

A Deeper Clean

The electric toothbrush gives your mouth a deeper and more thorough clean. Unlike manual toothbrushes, electric toothbrushes have a rotating head which reaches hidden and hard to get to areas in your mouth.

Less work and better results

An electric toothbrush simply does the work for you. It is proven that the electric toothbrush does a better job of cleaning your mouth than if done manually. You spend less time trying not to reach hidden areas in your mouth and establish a better brushing technique, e.g not brushing too hard.

Built in timer

It is easy to time the brushing of your teeth as an electric toothbrush has a built in timer which stops when the 2 minutes are up. This saves you having to play the guessing game and comes in handy when your feeling tired or are in a rush.

Kids love them

We all know how frustrating it can be when kids grumble about brushing their teeth. An electric toothbrush makes teeth cleaning fun for kids, the rotating head tickles their teeth and children view the toothbrush as a fun novelty. Kids electric toothbrushes come in a wide range of different character designs which make it extra fun for them.

Advanced features and technology

People are fascinated by the ever changing and advancing technology these days, and the electric toothbrush is no exception. Different models provide different types of features to suit you. Some features include: pressure sensors to tell you when you are brushing too hard, digital brush head replacement reminders, gum massagers, and a range of changeable heads such as Oscillating, Cupping and pulsating. Whatever your brushing habits, there is an electric toothbrush to suit your needs.

It is recommended that you do a little research before you go and buy an electric toothbrush. Not all electric toothbrushes are the same and each has different features, You need to find one that is right for you. Be aware that a battery powered toothbrush is not the same as an electric toothbrush, a battery powered brush simply makes the head vibrate when does very little for enhancing the cleaning of your teeth. A battery powered brush usually takes 2 AA batteries when is shown on the packaging. Buying an electric toothbrush will not guarantee you instant great results, you need to make sure you remember to brush twice a day as well as flossing.
