Should you be using an electric toothbrush?

Beautiful Woman In Bathrobe Brushing Teeth Using Electric ToothbrushYou may think that brushing your teeth is brushing your teeth, and it doesn’t matter how you do it. But how you brush your teeth can make a big difference to your oral health – and, it turns out, the toothbrush you use to brush your teeth can make a big difference, too. Here are a few reasons why you should consider switching to an electric toothbrush!

They just work better

Studies show that electric toothbrushes are just more effective than brushing manually, especially if your toothbrush has heads that rotate in different directions. Researchers say that those who use an electric toothbrush have less tooth decay, healthier gums, and tend to keep their natural teeth longer compared with manual toothbrush users. If you have arthritis or another condition that makes it hard to grasp a toothbrush, an electric toothbrush can make it easier and less painful to brush teeth.

They are getting less expensive all the time

If you are on a budget, it may be difficult to justify buying an electric toothbrush when there are manual toothbrushes available for a dollar or two. However, as the technology gets better and electric toothbrushes get more popular, the cost keeps going down.

They can do more than just brush

Some electric toothbrushes can help you to make sure you are brushing right. Brushing for at least 2 minutes at a time is one way to make sure you are removing plaque and debris off of teeth, but it is easy to just assume you have brushed long enough. Some electric toothbrushes come with a 2 minute timer to help. Some electric toothbrushes can even track your brushing progress and give you tips on how to brush better and tell you when you are brushing too hard.

An electric toothbrush is a fairly inexpensive way to help you keep your teeth nice and clean. Once you start using one you will definitely be able to tell that it makes a difference! Take care of your teeth by brushing thoroughly and seeing your dentist for cleanings. Call Hampton Dental Associates in Milwaukee at (414) 464-9021 for an appointment today!
