Good oral health begins with proper use of the toothbrush, whether electric or manual.
Whether you choose one or the other, toothbrushes are designed to remove plaque (bacteria) on the teeth and stimulate the gums to prevent periodontal disease. If the manual toothbrush is effective when used regularly in combination with flossing, clinical studies suggest that the electric toothbrush will dislodge plaque more effectively and reach areas that are more difficult to brush.
The technique of using an electric toothbrush is different from that of a manual toothbrush. In addition, the technique depends on the model of electric toothbrush you choose. For this reason, it is essential to bring your electric toothbrush to the dental hygienist who will be happy to show you the right technique so you can enjoy the benefits of such a brush.
The electric toothbrush is easy to use by all family members: with the right technique, children, like adults, make sure to have an effective brushing. In addition, electric toothbrushes generally have various functions that allow, among other things, to operate the toothbrush time required for effective brushing and to stop if one puts too much pressure during the brushing, avoiding thus to alter the enamel or to attack the gums. An effective and reliable electric toothbrush can range from $ 100 to $ 200.
It can be difficult to make the right choice. We invite you to consult with your dental hygienist, she will guide you. With the purchase of an electric toothbrush, you will receive one or two replacement heads.
As with a manual toothbrush, the bristles of the electric toothbrush eventually fail to perform their function properly. For this reason, it is recommended to change the head of an electric toothbrush, approximately every 3 months.
