Any dentist will advise you to use an electric toothbrush rather than a regular manual toothbrush. Not only does an electric toothbrush make it more effective to remove plaque from the surfaces of your teeth, but they also improve your oral health and make it easier to clean those hard-to-reach places in between the teeth.
Many electric toothbrushes also feature a built-in timer to alert you after two minutes of brushing, which makes it much easier for those who often do not brush their teeth for long enough. Electric toothbrushes also take the hard work away by the bristles vibrating or rotating to allow for more micro-movements around the mouth.
Patients who use electric toothbrushes have a significantly reduced risk of suffering from gum disease than those who stick to manual toothbrushes. Of course, this doesn’t mean that it’s impossible to have gum disease if you do use an electric toothbrush, so you should still maintain good oral health habits around your brushing routine.
If you’re searching for the best electric toothbrush to improve your oral health, please carry on reading. We have pulled together some of the best electric toothbrushes available on the market to suit all budgets.
