One benefit of using the electric toothbrush is that it provides a dentist-like cleaning. After using the electronic toothbrush, many people experience a feeling similar to the one they have when they leave the dentist office after a cleaning. The movement of the bristles is able to produce a deep cleaning that a person can’t get from a manual toothbrush. For people who like the feeling of a post-dental cleaning visit, an electric toothbrush is probably the best option.
Great at Removing Stains
Electric toothbrushes are great stain removers. This is especially important for people who smoke or drink coffee on a regular basis. Electric toothbrushes help eliminate stains caused by tobacco and caffeine. After stains are removed, the underlying whiteness of your smile shines.
Bacteria is one of the main culprits of bad breath. Bacteria often hide in places where ordinary toothbrushes cannot reach – between the teeth and under the gumline. Unlike ordinary toothbrushes, electric toothbrushes are able to reach and remove these bacteria, making your breath cleaner and fresher.
Protection of Teeth and Gums
Brushing removes the plaque bacteria which constantly grows on our teeth. Most people who use a manual toothbrush apply far too much pressure when brushing. An electronic toothbrush removes bacteria with minimal pressure.
If you use an electronic toothbrush, you can avoid the following problems associated with brushing too hard”
** Brushing too hard ruins gum tissue, causing the gums to recede. Gum tissue never grows back.
** Brushing too hard strips tooth enamel from the tooth making the tooth sensitive to heat, cold, and other stimuli.
Easy for Arthritis patients
An electric toothbrush can make dental care much easier for people with arthritis and repetitive strain injuries of the arm, hand, and shoulder. For best results, find the right electric toothbrush for you, considering the thickness of the handle for a good grip, size of the brush head, and other features.
