Which Is Better: A Manual or an Electric Toothbrush?

Beautiful Woman In Bathrobe Brushing Teeth Using Electric Toothbrush You might think that the toothbrush you use doesn’t make too much of a difference, as long as you use it! But it turns out that the kind of toothbrush you use can actually make quite a difference when it comes to keeping your teeth healthy! Read on for some reasons why you might want to pick up an electric toothbrush today!

They do a lot for your oral health

Studies have shown that electric toothbrushes do a much better job than manual toothbrushes. For one thing, in most electric toothbrushes the head rotates in different directions, which helps to do a thorough job of cleaning teeth and gums. This means less tooth decay and healthier gums, so much so that those who use electric toothbrushes have been shown to keep their natural teeth longer than those who use manual toothbrushes.

But nowadays, electric toothbrushes can do even more than just brush. Some of them can keep track of how you brush and notify you of how you can do a better job. Some can let you know when you are brushing too hard and also let you know that you have been brushing long enough (it is easy to assume you are brushing the suggested 2 minutes, but you might be surprised how long this really is!).

They are not as expensive as you might think

If you are on a budget and every penny counts, you may wonder why you should bother spending money on an electric toothbrush when you can buy manual toothbrushes for only a couple of bucks. However, the cost of electric toothbrushes keeps going down, and you may be surprised how little a good one will cost you.

You may be hesitant to spend money on an electric toothbrush, but here is another reason why you might want to get one – the first time you use it you will be able to tell that it makes a difference! Take care of your teeth by brushing correctly and thoroughly, and call the Konig Center for Cosmetic and Comprehensive Dentistry in Houston, Texas, to make an appointment to have your teeth cleaned.
