Benefits of Using an Electric Toothbrush
You already know that brushing your teeth twice a day helps to keep your oral cavity healthy. But did you know that using an electric toothbrush can help you achieve a deeper clean? At Southwood Dental Studio, if appropriate for your dental condition, we recommend the use of an electric toothbrush as it can provide many benefits.
Better at Decreasing Gum Inflammation and Plaque
According to a study, using an electric toothbrush is simply more effective than using a manual toothbrush. The research showed that using a powered toothbrush could reduce plaque by 11 percent after one to three months and by 21 percent after three months of use. The study also revealed that an electric toothbrush could decrease gum inflammation by 6 percent after one to three months and by 11 percent after three months of use.
Easy to Use
Unlike manual brushes, powered toothbrushes provide the brushing action for you. All you need to do is turn the electric toothbrush on, hold it at 45-degree angle, and guide it along the surfaces of your teeth. Electric toothbrushes are programmed to do the work for you.
Great for People with Limited Range of Motion
As mentioned, an electric toothbrush does the work for you, and therefore it is advisable for people with limited movement. It is beneficial for people with arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome or developmental disabilities.
High Technology Features
An electric toothbrush is considered an advanced tool to clean your teeth. It delivers different technological features depending on its manufacturer. Some powered toothbrushes have sensors to signal when brushing becomes too hard. While others have brushing modes for sensitive teeth. Some electric toothbrushes also feature timers, digital reminders, sonic technology, and a multiple brush head compatibility.
