|Do you want to shake up your oral healthcare routine? Did your last visit to our office leave you wondering how the status of your oral health has changed?
Maybe it's time for a switch and a new toothbrush could be exactly what you need. If you're looking to switch over to a powered toothbrush, then read on to learn about some very good reasons for making the switch.
What are the Benefits of a Powered Toothbrush?A powered toothbrush, also known as an electric toothbrush, does a very good job of removing debris stuck between teeth and in the natural interstices and gaps in the teeth.
The shape of the brush head on manual toothbrushes prevents it from reaching and cleaning all the teeth with equal effectiveness. The bristles on the rotating head of an electric toothbrush can clean the front and back of teeth. These bristles can reach the molars recessed at the back and clean them. They help prevent plaque and tartar buildup.
Kids taught to brush with electric brushes are given the best chance of preserving their natural teeth for the longest possible time. Children wearing braces can clean stuck debris more effectively with electric brushes. Some electric brushes have built in timers or alerts, you can easily form the habit of dedicating equal time to both, the right and left sides of the mouth.
With manual toothbrushes, a right-handed person is often partial to cleaning the right side more thoroughly. The minor neglect of the other side builds up over time and can result in cavities. Also, vigorous brushing of only one side can affect gum health and also the tooth's enamel.
An electric toothbrush helps keep gum disease at bay by thoroughly cleaning the teeth. Powered toothbrushes also fight halitosis effectively. Bad breath resulting from unremoved, decaying food particles stuck in the mouth, is effectively combated by using powered toothbrushes.
