How to Pick Out the Perfect Electric Toothbrush
Posted on 11/15/2018 by Office
Good oral hygiene is crucial for a healthy mouth and a healthy body overall. You need to brush your teeth at least twice a day, taking care to ensure all surfaces of the teeth are cleaned properly. For some people, this means the use of an electric toothbrush. If you are in the market for a new electric toothbrush, these tips can help you to choose the right one. Review Settings Different brushes offer different settings, so you should investigate the ability to change to different cleaning modes. For everyday plaque removal, most people use a daily clean mode. Sensitive modes might be a good option if you have sensitive teeth, as this setting tends to produce fewer movements to not aggravate the teeth. Consider Ultrasonic DesignsUltrasonic brushes tend to be more efficient than sonic brushes. While they might be a bit more expensive, these brushes use millions of oscillations per minute rather than thousands, leading to a more effective clean. Since some companies use the terms ultrasonic and sonic interchangeably, always verify the package to view the oscillations per minute to ensure you are really purchasing an ultrasonic design. Think about Portability Do you travel a lot either for business or pleasure? If so, you'll want to consider just how easy it is for you to take your toothbrush along for the trip. Uncovered toothbrushes are an easy target for bacteria and germs, so consider a travel case to keep your brush safe. Portability and battery longevity of the brush's charger should also be considered, as some smaller toothbrushes may be easier to transport between your destinations. Do you need help picking out the right electric toothbrush? If so, know that we are always here to help you improve your oral health. Give us a call today to set up your next appointment....
