Have you noticed the wealth of options available in the toothbrush market? It’s not just about different colors or functions of the toothbrush head anymore! Instead, we’ve begun to see a tremendous amount of research comparing manual and electric toothbrushes.
The Electric Vs. Manual Debate
Investing in a quality electric toothbrush is shown to remove more plaque biofilm than brushing with a traditional manual brush. A manual toothbrush can still be efficient, but the right electric toothbrush can improve the health of your teeth and gums.
Not all electric toothbrushes are created equal. They come in a variety of price points, weights and speed settings. It is better to use a soft-bristled manual brush than it is a cheap electric one that uses too much force. The right electric brush will use gentle vibration to lift plaque away, without damaging your teeth and gums.
What’s Right for You?
In the end, it’s important to remember that both manual and electric toothbrushes are used to promote your oral health by preventing future problems from occurring. If you’re thinking about a new way of brushing, ask us for a recommendation and we’ll discuss what’s right for you!
