Are Electronic Toothbrushes A Better Option To Traditional Ones?

Posted on 5/9/2022 by Dr. Janice Pliszczak
Are Electronic Toothbrushes A Better Option To Traditional Ones?Maintaining healthy teeth and gums is crucial for your oral and overall health. The key to keeping the gums and teeth healthy is to remove as much plaque as you can before it hardens to form tartar, the calcified substance that accumulates under the gum line. Tartar is quite stubborn to remove with regular toothbrushes and only professional cleaning can eradicate it. When brushing your teeth, ensure you get a suitable toothbrush that can do the job. Sometimes, it can be difficult between choosing a manual toothbrush or an electronic one.

Manual Toothbrushes

Using manual toothbrushes requires that you angle the brush and move it in a firm, circular motion to ensure the thorough removal of plaque and food debris from the gums and teeth. If you can make circular strokes to clean the teeth of plaque, bacteria, and food remains and oral checkups indicate that there is no decay, cavities, or gum infection, you may not need to get an electronic toothbrush. You can just do with the manual one.

Electronic Toothbrushes

Individuals who have difficulties angling the toothbrush and making circular strokes can consider using electronic toothbrushes as an effective alternative. With electronic toothbrushes, the bristles move on their own. Therefore, there is no need to make a circular motion while angling the brush. What you need to focus on is just the angling of the toothbrush as you continue cleaning the gums and teeth. Electronic toothbrushes are extremely helpful to people who have limited dexterity within their hands as a result of injuries or arthritis.
