Benefits of an Electric Toothbrush
The American Dental Association says both manual and electric toothbrushes do an effective job removing plaque from teeth. However, there are some benefits that come with investing in an electric toothbrush.
Electric Toothbrushes are More Effective at Removing Plaque
The bristles on an electric toothbrush vibrate or rotate to better remove plaque. Studies show that these micro-movements better remove plaque from teeth and gums and reduce risk of gingivitis. Oscillating brushes show to be even more effective.
Electric Toothbrushes are Easier for People with Limited Mobility
If you struggle with carpal tunnel, arthritis, or developmental disabilities an electric toothbrush may be a great option for you! Electric toothbrushes tend to do most of the work for you. In fact, the electric toothbrush does its best work when you don’t apply pressure yourself.
Many electric toothbrushes have a built-in timer to hold you accountable to that two minute recommended brush time.
Fun for Kids
Electric toothbrushes make oral hygiene more exciting for kids and may increase their likelihood of brushing effectively.
