How Using An Electric Toothbrush Could Improve Your Dental Hygiene

The type of toothbrush you use makes a difference in your dental hygiene. Electric toothbrushes are great for children and adults alike — they offer in-depth cleanings and built-in timers that make keeping your oral health in top shape easier.

Benefits Of Electric Toothbrushes

A manual toothbrush is the tried and true method of keeping your teeth clean and gums healthy. That being said, electric toothbrushes offer an improved way of protecting your oral health. Let us take a closer look at some of the benefits.

Multiple Settings

Electric toothbrushes can be customized to suit your needs thanks to various speeds and rotational settings. An electric toothbrush can be programmed to oscillate, rotate, or pulsate at different intervals to provide the deepest level of cleaning possible.

Better Plaque Removal

The fastest brushes can move a manual brush around 300 times per minute, but electric toothbrushes can easily top 1,000 strokes per minute. Some can even hit almost 50,000 per minute!

Built-In Timer

Most electric toothbrushes have a timer installed that allows you to easily keep track of how long you brush your teeth. The Canadian Dental Association recommends brushing at least twice a day for two to three minutes each time.

Eco-Friendly Design

Although their plastic heads need to be replaced, you can keep the same electric toothbrush for years. Instead of continuously throwing away entire toothbrushes, you can decrease the amount of plastic you use by going electric.
