Benefits of choosing an electric toothbrush

Benefits of choosing an electric toothbrushAlmost every dentist recommends their patients to use an electric toothbrush instead of a normal and manual one. The benefits are many and you get an overall better dental hygiene, especially if you combine your brushing habits with floss and rinse with flour.

Studies show that use of an electrical toothbrush helps keep inflammations in the gum down and therefore keeps your teeth and dental hygiene healthier longer.

Even though you brush thoroughly with your manual brushes, they still can’t provide results like an electric brush would provide. The bristles on a manual toothbrush are unfortunately designed in a way that makes it difficult for them to remove all the plaque and tartar built up on and in between your teeth. An electric one on the other hand has a much more efficient brush head that reaches the surfaces that is difficult for the manual brush. A side benefit of using an electric toothbrush is that it can improve your breath and help prevent bad breath.

Bad breath comes from old and rotten food, and plaque stuck on and in between your teeth and since the electrical brush has a better reach, it helps get rid of the unwanted smelly breath. You will get even better results if you combine your brushing with flossing, removing all things stuck in between your teeth.

Most electrical toothbrushes come with a built in timer. With this timer you will automatically brush your teeth, not only better, but longer. A general guideline is to brush your teeth three minutes each time and two times a day. With the timer in the brush, you don’t have to worry about brushing too little or to long for that matter; the brush will do the counting for you.

And with more efficient and longer brushes your whole mouth will feel cleaner and your smile will be brighter.
