Are Electric Toothbrushes Better Than Manual Brushes?

Posted on 2/7/2022 by Janice K. Pliszczak, DDS
Are Electric Toothbrushes Better Than Manual Brushes?Brushing your teeth the old-fashioned way with a manual toothbrush is not the most exciting thing to do in the morning, but if you are looking to keep your smile pearly white and your gums healthy, it is something you must do at least twice every day. If you find yourself dreading this part of your daily routine and are open to alternative approaches, you might want to consider an electric toothbrush instead of a manual one. In this article, we will explore whether these brushes are indeed better than traditional brushes in all their many forms.

How Can Electric Toothbrushes Help

Electric toothbrushes offer a few benefits that make them worth considering if you are looking to improve your oral health and prevent gum disease. Some studies have found that certain electric toothbrush models can reduce plaque buildup and even remove up to 95 percent of plaque in areas between teeth compared with manual brushing. Additionally, they can help remove hard-to-reach plaque or food particles from deep between teeth, something a manual brush is less likely to achieve. Finally, electric brushes can potentially clean your teeth better than a manual model because of their motorized movement.

When should you switch to an electric toothbrush?

Many people use manual toothbrushes their entire lives, and they can not imagine any reason why they would need to make a switch. But, once you get an electric toothbrush and experience how much easier it is to brush your teeth, you will be hooked for life. If that happens, it becomes more important than ever to understand when you should make a switch. The most common and obvious reason is to brush effectively. But also, you may consider getting an electric toothbrush if your mobility is beginning to fail you. Electric brushes help people with arthritis and other mobility issues brush with ease.
