Benefits of Electronic Toothbrushes
Electric toothbrushes can make the job of brushing your teeth faster, easier and, for some,more enjoyable. If you don’t yet own an electric toothbrush, now is a great time to learn about their benefits.
1. More effective cleaning
Brushing your teeth thoroughly is one of the best ways to keep them and your gums healthy. The bristles of an electric toothbrush rotate and pulsate to clean deeper and further than manual toothbrushes. They also make it easy to maintain the proper pressure on your teeth for the cleanest clean.
2. Longer brushing
Many people fail to spend the recommended two minutes at a time brushing their teeth. Electric toothbrushes often have built-in timers that help you keep track of how long you are brushing. Some even have special timers that allow you to monitor how long you brush each quadrant.
3. Easier brushing
Children and those with limited dexterity often find that electric toothbrushes are simply easier to use. They can simply hold the brush while the brush does all the work, and their teeth get cleaner than they would with manual brushing.
Dr. Frame recommends electric toothbrushes to his patients for the many benefits they offer. A wide range of electric toothbrushes is available, including rechargeable brushes and battery-operated brushes. For the best results, change the brush head of the brush at least every three months just as you would change a manual toothbrush. Use a new brush head whenever the old one looks worn, the bristles are bent, after an illness or when the brush indicates that it is time to change.
