According to studies, manual and electric toothbrushes offer the same effectiveness in terms of dental care. However, with manual toothbrushes, brushing hard-to-reach areas can be tough. There’s so much more that can be accomplished easily with an electric toothbrush, aside from the effortless tooth brushing.
Provides cleaner and healthier teeth, tongue, and gums
Most people are taught to brush their teeth at an early age. Despite efforts to brush their teeth consistently two or three times a day, they don’t brush as thoroughly as they would like. This is because the nylon bristles cannot reach areas where tartar and plaque build up. With electronic toothbrushes’ rotating head and bristles, hard-to-reach areas are brushed thoroughly as well as the gums and the back of your tongue.
Offers optimal dental care on both sides of the mouth
Another benefit of electronic toothbrushes is that they offer even pressure on both sides of the mouth. For instance, left-handed people brush the right side of their mouths with ease but leave the left side not thoroughly cleaned. With electronic toothbrush’s consistent motion and even pressure, optimal dental care on both sides of the mouth can be achieved, whether you are right or left handed.
Beneficial for kids
An electric toothbrush is not only beneficial for adults but also for kids. This is because it helps them remove all the food building up in their teeth with ease. That is why an electric toothbrush is recommended for kids wearing braces. On the other hand, kids who are using a manual toothbrush may struggle to get into those hard to reach places in their mouths
Using a manual toothbrush requires a bit of an effort to exert and deliver the right pressure and motion. But with an electric toothbrush’s motorized motion, it does the work for you without exerting effort on your hand and wrist.
Fights off gum disease
A simple inflammation in the gums or gingivitis may worsen if not treated right away and become a gum disease. Gum disease is a serious dental problem which can result in teeth loss due to the defective tissues around the teeth. To prevent it, you need an electric toothbrush that will fight off gingivitis. By finding the hard-to-reach areas in your mouth, your teeth, as well as your gums, will surely be cleaned thoroughly.
Helps banish bad breath
Food particles and plaque that are stuck along your gums and in between your teeth may cause bad breath if they’re not taken out. With an electric toothbrush and a dental floss, you can banish bad breath by finding and removing the food that is lodged in the nooks and crannies between your teeth.
