Perks of Using a Powered Toothbrush

Posted on 10/20/2016 by Fady Ebid
A close up of an electronic toothbrush.
You may think that you're doing a good job of keeping your teeth clean using your manual toothbrush and dental floss. And it's true that you may be doing a passable job. But if you want your mouth really clean, you should consider using an electronic toothbrush.

Electronic toothbrushes are better for your gums. The bristles on your manual toothbrush have a harder time reaching into hidden crevices than the ones on an electronic toothbrush. This is due largely to your own body mechanics. For example, most right-handed people tend to brush the left sides of their mouths better than the right sides.

Using an electronic toothbrush removes the issue of your body mechanics, and results in a better cleaning-meaning you are better able to ward off gum disease.

Electronic toothbrushes make you brush longer. Everyone knows you should brush your teeth for two minutes. Most people who manually brush their teeth don't ever hit this time limit. Electronic toothbrushes commonly have a built-in timer so they automatically shut off after two minutes. This helps to remind you to keep going for the full duration.

Electronic toothbrushes remove the guesswork. When you brush your teeth, you may not know how hard to brush. Most people brush too hard or too lightly; very few brush exactly right. An electronic toothbrush pulsates its bristles with exactly the right amount of pressure, so you don't have to try to figure it out. Just put it against your teeth at a slight angle towards the gum line and let the toothbrush do the rest.

An electronic toothbrush can seem like an expensive addition to your bathroom, but the benefits it brings to the table makes it more than worth it. If you need more information on these wonders of technology, please contact your dentist today!
