One of the questions we most often receive from patients at our practice is about whether they should stick with their manual toothbrush, or make the investment in an electric toothbrush.
Our advice is that a good electric toothbrush is the better choice.
One of the best things about an electric toothbrush is that the brushing actions are performed for you, making the brush more reliable and easier to use. The other major benefit of the automatic function of the electric toothbrush is that it offers a superior level of plaque removal, reducing the risk of gum disease.
With advances made in technology, many electric toothbrushes are able to make your daily oral hygiene regime all the easier by providing you with reminders to change the head of your toothbrush, and timers to help you ensure that you are brushing for the correct amount of time. Many electric toothbrushes also have numerous interchangeable head options so that you can choose the type of bristle that feels best for you when brushing.
If you would like advice on how you can best look after your teeth and gums, we recommend that you make an appointment with our hygienist. Our hygienist is able to perform a professional scale and polish and can provide expert recommendations on how you can perfect your oral health care regime.
