What are the benefits of an electric toothbrush over a manual toothbrush?
An electric toothbrush can provide a deeper and more effective clean than a manual toothbrush as it can reach places a manual toothbrush can’t. It also uses technology to provide different types of brush head movements, such as pulsing, oscillating and rotating, to help lift plaque and food debris away from even the smallest spaces between teeth.
Electric toothbrushes provide guidance to help improve the quality of your brushing. For example, most electric toothbrushes have a set timer that starts to vibrate when the recommended time to brush is complete. Also, they can help to monitor the pressure you are applying, so if you brushing too hard, which can damage your teeth, it will alert you.
An increase in smart electric toothbrushes offer even more benefits in the form of real-time feedback when you connect to an app on your smartphone. You will be able to keep track of your brushing habits to see improvements to oral health and to make changes where necessary.
How do you clean your teeth with an electric toothbrush?
The recommended angle to brush your teeth at is 45 degrees to your gum line, and this is no different with an electric toothbrush. Keep the pressure gentle as the electric toothbrush will do most of the work for you, and simply guide it around all areas of your teeth and mouth for a thorough clean.
Use the electric toothbrush timers and alerts to ensure you’re brushing for the right length of time and at the right pressure.
How many years does an electric toothbrush last?
This will depend on various factors such as how often you use it, and the condition you store it in, however generally speaking an electric toothbrush can be expected to last between 3-5 years. It is advisable to change the brush heads every 3 months, like a regular manual toothbrush, or as soon as the bristles start to fray, as this could impact the cleaning effectiveness. If you look after your electric toothbrush and brush heads carefully, and remember to charge it up at regular times, you should get the same thorough clean as you did when you first bought it.
How do you store an electric toothbrush?
Once you have used your electric toothbrush, give it a quick rinse to make sure it is clean and then dry it with a towel or leave it to air dry. It’s best to keep it stored upright so the brush head doesn’t get damaged.
