Though brushing is a part of our daily routine or lifestyle and most of us brush our teeth at least once in the morning if not twice. Mundane Task, yes it is but it is vital for not only our teeth but our overall health as well. We brush every morning but there are a few questions which might make you wonder if brushing is really helping you the way it should. The fact of the matter is that how many of us know how long we need to brush and what is the exact drill. Not many, right? We do brush daily but never pay attention at the process and this could be a problem for our teeth in a long run. Another vital point is that of changing your toothbrush on a regular basis. While many of you should be aware of the fact, those who aren’t may note that down.
Many of you might be aware of the electric brush. Dentists do recommend that brush for people who are not able to brush their teeth properly and visit with issues of painful tooth or teeth. Let us understand the benefits of an electric toothbrush over a manual one.
- Compared to manual toothbrushes, electric brushes do the cleaning for you as it comes with the ability to do brush rotations ranging from 3000 to 40000 strokes per minute.
- Electric brushes are available for sensitive teeth, for gum massaging as well as for the whitening purpose
- These brushes come with timers for keeping track of the length of brushing for each quadrant
- They also come with digital reminders for replacing the toothbrush
- They are compatible with multiple heads, so you can choose the bristles as per your design
The best benefit of the using an electric brush is that the rotating head of the brush not only ensures a proper combination of motion but also equal pressure. Many of the people might brush daily but the pressure part is not the same on both sides. A right-handed person might be able to brush properly on the left properly but not the right. Additionally, your hands and wrists can rest hence it’s a boon for people with arthritis making the process of brushing less painful. A survey carried out on electric toothbrush revealed a 21% reduction in plaque and 11% reduction in gingivitis post three months of use. Electric toothbrushes are power brushes which can be recharged on a need to need basis. People who start using them find them far better than manual ones. There is a wide variety available and hence getting one that fits your needs isn’t a big deal.
