Is Your Electric Toothbrush Effective?

Posted .

Are you considering switching to an electric toothbrush? If so, we are excited for this new change in your life because electric toothbrushes can offer increased efficacy and results in cleaning your teeth. Before selecting your new toothbrush, we offer a few things to consider so that you can choose the best possible product.

We invite you to choose a toothbrush that:

– Is sonic so that it can deliver strokes of about 18,000 to 40,000 per minute. This increases the speed of the brush so that you can clean your teeth quickly and more effectively, though you should brush for two minutes.

– Uses a pressure sensor, which is a very helpful characteristic that alerts you if you brush your teeth too hard. This helps prevent accidental harm to the teeth and gums, such as worn-down tooth enamel and gums that begin to recede from the teeth.

– Has a timer for two minutes to make sure you are brushing your teeth for the recommended amount of time every day. Brushing for too little or too long can negatively affect your smile and lead to poor oral health.
