Manual vs Electric Brushes
Many people use manual toothbrushes to remove debris and plaque from their teeth. However, electric brushes have become widely popular in recent years, leaving many people wondering which method is most effective.
You can effectively brush your teeth with either a manual toothbrush or an electric one. However, the rapid movements of motorised brushes may be more effective at removing plaque from the teeth and gum line. Regardless of what you choose to brush with, it should be easy for you to manoeuvre in your mouth and behind your back teeth. If the head is too big, it may not be effectively removing plaque from your teeth.
If you have questions about which toothbrush is best for you, speak with your dentist about it at your next visit. They may recommend an electric brush with an oscillating head or a brush that includes a timer to let you know how long to brush or with a pressure indicator if they suspect you are pressing too hard.
