Do you use an electric toothbrush or a manual one? Why to choose an electric toothbrush? Today we’re going to share with you the top 5 benefits of using an electric toothbrush.
1. An electronic toothbrush keeps your teeth, gums, and tongue cleaner and healthier
Our parents taught to brush our teeth thoroughly since we were kids. Despite our best efforts, though, we’re not brushing as thoroughly as we would like—that is because the bristles on regular toothbrushes cannot reach to remove all of the plaque and tartar built up between the teeth.
An electric toothbrush’s rotating head features bristles which can definitely reach further thanks to the combination of motion and equal pressure from the brush itself. Equal pressure is very important as well—far too many manual brushers do a great job on one side of the mouth (a right handed person often brushes the left side of the mouth more thoroughly) but struggle to keep the other side of the mouth. That’s where our second benefit comes in.
2. An electric toothbrush makes for longer, more through teeth brushing
Most electronic toothbrushes are set for equal time for each quadrant which ensures a better and longer brushing and a great, clean feeling.
Kids and teenagers are often one of the biggest beneficiaries of electric toothbrushes. Many kids brush but don’t get all of the food buildup between meals. Children with braces are especially susceptible to this happening all the time. An electric toothbrush is a good compromise as you can count on it getting all of those hard to reach places that can be missed with manual brushing.
3. An electric toothbrush does the work for you
Old habits die hard. Although we mean well our manual brushing can often be too hard for our gums and our own good. An electric toothbrush not only times your brush (as stated above) but takes the guesswork out of teeth brushing too.
4. An electric toothbrush is a great way to fight gingivitis and gum disease
An electric toothbrush is an excellent tool in the fight against gingivitis and gum disease in your mouth. How? An electric toothbrush can find those hard to reach places that you miss with a manual toothbrush. You’re not just brushing longer and better but you’re brushing smarter killing the bacteria in your mouth.
5. Using an electric toothbrush can help you get rid of bad breath
Bad breath is a symptom of food and plaque which have become lodged in the nooks and crannies between your teeth and along your gums. An electric toothbrush and regular flossing can work together to get rid of bad breath by finding and eliminating the food between your teeth.
