Is An Electric Toothbrush Worth The Investment

You surely have seen the oral hygiene aisles inside your local grocery store or local pharmacy.

We understand that you have probably been using a traditional manual toothbrush most of your life. However, you may want to consider the advantages that an electric toothbrush can offer you. In this post, we are going to explore the advantages that electric toothbrushes can offer you.

  • Ease Of Cleaning: An electric toothbrush will do the work for you, as they automatically vibrate and rotate at the same time. Simply power the toothbrush on and let it brush for you!
  • Tongue Mode: It is important to brush your tongue, and electric toothbrushes often come with a mode specifically designed to clean your tongue. So, once you are done brushing your teeth, simply switch to tongue mode, and allow the electric toothbrush to clean your tongue properly.
  • Pressure: Most patients tend to brush their teeth too hard, and over time this can damage your gums and tooth enamel. Majority of the electric toothbrushes today come with pressure sensors and will alert you if you are applying too much pressure while brushing.
  • Timing: Along with applying too much pressure, a lot of patients are guilty of not brushing their teeth for an adequate amount of time. Recommended time for brushing is at least two minutes, and electric toothbrushes again come in for the rescue. This rescue procedure is that they are built in with timers that will ensure that you brush your teeth for at least two minutes.
