Electric toothbrushes have been proven to remove more plaque than manual toothbrushes and this means that there is a lower risk of decay and gum disease. Some people also find that electric toothbrushes are easier to use and they leave your mouth feeling cleaner and fresher than traditional brushes.
Electric toothbrushes are more expensive than manual toothbrushes, but they last for a long time and you only have to replace the brush head, rather than the whole brush, which means that the brush is a long-term investment. Electric toothbrushes remove plaque more effectively than manual brushes and many are packed with features, which benefit your oral health and make the brushing experience more enjoyable.
There are some very high-tech models on the market, providing wireless technology, different brushing modes, data about your brushing technique and frequency and while not everyone thinks these are worth the money, we do recommend brushes that have a timer, as these help to ensure that you brush for the recommended 2 minutes twice a day.
Electric toothbrushes have been proven to be more effective at removing plaque than other brushes because the brush head rotates at a much greater speed and covers a larger area than a traditional brush. Many electric toothbrushes have small heads, which enable you to reach into the corners of the mouth and target the gum line, which are areas that are prone to plaque collection.
There are lots of different brands and models available and it can be confusing try to choose one brush. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to get a good brush and it is worth shopping around as prices tend to vary greatly between different retailers. If you have any questions or you are not sure which brush to go for, we will be happy to give you some recommendations at Harley Street Dental Studio in London.
