The dentists and team at Westermeier Martin Dental Care often get asked, “What kind of toothbrush should I use?” and their response often is that electric toothbrushes provide superior dental care.
Toothbrushes remove plaque and stimulate the gums and most any kind of toothbrush will do the job, as long as you use it correctly.
The advantages to a manual toothbrush include:
Make certain you buy a soft bristle toothbrush; anything else will be too abrasive for your teeth.
When you’re deciding what kind of toothbrush to use, the advantages of an electric toothbrush include:
Hygienists state they can always tell when their patients are using an electric tooth brush because their mouths are in better shape.
If you don’t do a good job with your manual toothbrush, and your dentist or dental hygienist can let you know that, an electric toothbrush can help with your oral health. Also, if you have arthritis or other dexterity issues, an electric toothbrush might be best.
You can ask your dentist at Westermeier Martin Dental Care to recommend a brand and style for your electric toothbrush. You will want to look for a bristle style and size that appeals – just as you would with a manual toothbrush. You don’t have to break the bank and buy the most expensive electric toothbrush on the market, simply using one will help keep your teeth cleaner, your breath fresher and plaque from taking hold.
