Electric Toothbrushes vs. Manual Toothbrushes
Our dentists at Hudson Family Dental encourage proper and effective dental care habits. This includes adequate and regular brushing and flossing. However, the question often comes up: Which is the better option, electric toothbrushes or manual toothbrushes? Choosing the right toothbrush for you is an important step in improving your health. Despite what many may think, not all toothbrushes are the same or provide the same benefits. Our dentists are encouraging making the switch to an electric toothbrush. Why is that a better option? Read on to learn why your smile could benefit from an electric brush.
What are the advantages of switching to an electric toothbrush?
Regardless of your oral health, anyone can benefit from an electric toothbrush. They provide a complete and effective clean by doing the work for the individual. Often times, the electric toothbrushes are installed with a timer for two minutes for a productive clean. A pressure indicator light also alerts when you are brushing too hard. This makes it easier for older patients who have trouble using their hands since the electric toothbrush does all the work for you. It effectively removes all the plaque in order to prevent problems down the line. It is also is a perfect option for those who have braces. Ineffectively brushing your teeth with braces can ruin your teeth once the braces are off, leaving parents with yet another bill to pay to fix their child’s teeth. Investing in an electric toothbrush can leave patients with a stain free and shiny smile. It also saves you money in the long run while helping to prevent future illnesses.
