Boost Your Brushing!
Benefits of an Electric Toothbrush
One of the benefits of a sonic toothbrush: Feeling like you just walked out of the dentist's office every time you brush your teeth.
For a cleaner feeling, and more thorough job, an electric toothbrush will help you in more ways than one. It has a two-minute timer; most people brush their teeth less than 30 seconds. This helps to ensure that you are brushing long enough to maintain good oral health. It removes up to 4 times more plaque than a manual toothbrush! There are 31,000 brush strokes per minute. We love how the Sonicare also prevents stains on teeth! When using a Sonicare consistently, it improves the health of your gums which reduces inflammation. And guess what? There is a Sonicare toothbrush made just for kids too! With a fun app to sync to, it encourages daily brushing and involvement.
5 benefits of the Sonicare Toothbrush:
1. An electric toothbrush keeps your teeth, gums, and tongue cleaner and healthier
Despite our best efforts a manual toothbrush often cannot reach and remove all the plaque build up around your teeth. An electric toothbrushes’ rotating head features bristles which can reach those more difficult areas thanks to the combination of motion and equal pressure from the brush itself. Plus the number of brush strokes per minute aren’t comparable to what even superman could brush.
2. An electric toothbrush makes for longer, more thorough teeth brushing
Most electronic toothbrushes are set for equal time for each quadrant which ensures a better, longer brushing and a great, clean feeling. Often kids benefit the most from electric toothbrushes. Many kids brush but don’t get all the food buildup between meals. Kids with braces are especially susceptible to this. An electric toothbrush is a good compromise since you can count on it getting all those hard-to-reach places that kids miss with manual brushing.
3. Less Effort with a better result
An electric toothbrush does the work for you, it’s simple, just hold and slowly move along all the surfaces of your teeth. Plus, it’s great for those that have dexterity problems, such as the elderly, children, or those with special needs.
4. More effective in fighting gingivitis and gum disease
An electric toothbrush is an excellent tool in the fight against gingivitis and gum disease. How? By removing more plaque and bacteria, it keeps the gums healthier. You’re not just brushing longer and better but you’re brushing smarter too.
5. Using an electric toothbrush can help you get rid of bad breath
Bad breath is a symptom of food and plaque which have become lodged in the nooks and crannies between your teeth and along your gums. An electric toothbrush and regular flossing can work together to get rid of bad breath by finding and eliminating the food between your teeth.
