What are the advantages of an electric toothbrush?
An electric toothbrush cleans teeth, protects gums: Several studies on the subject have shown that the electric toothbrush removes, on average, twice as many dental plates as the manual toothbrush. Dental plaque is precisely the cause of gingivitis, while ineffective brushing increases the risk of cavities. Do you want to protect your teeth and gums as much as possible? Better to opt for an electric toothbrush.
A delicate action that respects oral health: Most electric toothbrushes are equipped with an intelligent system: pressure sensors. These sensors are capable of measuring the pressure exerted on the tooth and block the mechanism when the user presses too hard and risks damaging his enamel or attacking his gums. Dentists have found that manual brushing can alter the enamel: many people tend to brush their teeth energetically, without using soft brushes; As a result, the coating and the gums are damaged while the sensitivity sometimes becomes a real problem.
An incomparable technique: Many people are wondering how to brush their teeth properly, with the electric toothbrush, this problem disappears. You have to follow the dentist’s instructions (or those noted on the brush packaging): clean each tooth from top to bottom, in circular movements, inside and out. To perfectly meet all expectations, it is possible to change the brushes by opting, for example, for “soft cleanliness,” “massage,” or even “polishing” head (rotary oscillating models). Add to that the inter-dental brushes (sonic models, brushing or sweeping), ideal for avoiding periodontitis and keeping your breath fresh.
Ease of use: The electric toothbrush requires minimal effort, so it is particularly useful for the elderly, the sick, and even children. Taking care of your oral health is essential to keep in shape, so it is necessary to brush your teeth thoroughly in all circumstances.
A playful approach: Does your child not want to brush their teeth? Do you have to chase after him in the house to convince him of the benefits of brushing? The electric toothbrush is suitable for children (from 3 years old) and can completely change their relationship to brushing. Indeed, some playful brushes are equipped with a small musical system that starts up as soon as the child begins to clean his teeth. This music lasts two minutes, the time recommended by dentists with such a brush (it is 3 minutes with a manual toothbrush). Thanks to this system, children enjoy brushing their teeth and thus adopt excellent habits for their oral health.
