The advantages of an electric toothbrush
Who would want a set of impressively white teeth? Smiling with a set of pearly whites can leave other people with a good impression of you, because you take time and effort to keep your teeth healthy. Dentists suggest that everyone should brush their teeth twice a day, floss regularly and visit the dentist’s office at least once a year to maintain a healthy and clean set of teeth. Brushing our teeth helps get rid of all the food particles and plaque, reducing the chance of cavities.
But is an electric toothbrush really better than brushing with a plain toothbrush? One advantage of an electric toothbrush is that it can move much faster than a person’s hand can move, which helps clean more efficiently. Plus, this makes it beneficial for individuals who are suffering from carpal tunnel, arthritis and similar conditions, because they would not have to move their hands and wrists as much. In a recent WebMD article, electric toothbrushes that were used over a period of three months were shown to remove plaque more effectively, thereby reducing the chance of gingivitis and bleeding gums.
Here are three of my top picks for electric toothbrushes:
Sonic care toothbrush
Sonic care toothbrush is at the top of the electric toothbrush charts for removing plaque. It is clinically tested and recommended to combat plaque and keep teeth clean. The sonic care electric toothbrush can reach difficult areas of our mouth to clean all the food particles.
Braun electric toothbrush
The Braun electric toothbrush is one of the most popular toothbrushes because of its efficiency and performance. The brush cleans teeth in the most thorough manner, without hurting our gums. The best thing about this brush is that it comes with a timer, so we’re brushing for the amount of time recommended by dentists.
Philips Sonicare Flexcare
The next in line of the electric bandwagon is the Philips Sonicare Flexcare electric toothbrush. This toothbrush from Philips is loaded with features, which are sure to keep teeth clean. There are even some with a UV sanitizer that kills off germs and bacteria that are left on the brush after cleaning.
