Keeping your teeth clean and healthy is one of the most important things you can do for your health. There are two different types of toothbrushes you can use, a manual toothbrush and an electric toothbrush. Both toothbrushes should be replaced every six months. However, with electric toothbrushes, you only have to replace the head. There are several other benefits that many dentists agree with.
Electronic toothbrushes naturally have the ability to make your mouth cleaner than a manual brush. The bristles are programmed to scrub the enamel thoroughly with minimal time spent and pressure applied. The motorized bristles will do a better job of cleaning the tongue and gums than a person would do alone with a manual toothbrush.
Probably one of the best benefits of a motorized toothbrush is the fact you do not have to do the work. Dr. Sam S. Sadati and his team at the Sadati Center for Aesthetic Dentistry know that people struggle brushing their teeth two to three times a day due to the amount of effort it takes. Many also fear that they are not brushing correctly or that it hurts their gums. When you do not have to put forth any effort, you are more likely to be willing to brush regularly.
Some electronic toothbrushes have timers built it to track how much time was spent. Some may not brush long enough and plaque may still reside when using manual toothbrushes. This would make people susceptible to gingivitis, cavities, or gum disease. Brushing teeth must be long enough to make sure all of the buildup is removed, especially if the individual has braces.
Electronic toothbrushes help get rid of plaque effectively and aids in the reduction of bad breath. With guidance from Dr. Sadati on how to floss, patients in Wellington, FL can find that brushing is no longer a chore but an easy activity.
