Do you need one more gift idea this holiday season? How about an electronic toothbrush? It may not seem exciting, but studies show that the vast majority of people are not brushing their teeth properly to ensure good dental health. And poor brushing could lead to problems such as gum disease, bad breath…and hours in the dentist’s chair.
An electric toothbrush is designed to vibrate at a high speed, producing more brush strokes per minute than a manual toothbrush. With the bristles moving faster, the toothbrush is better able to remove plaque and even brush in between teeth, helping to remove stains and bad breath caused by bacteria. Most electronic toothbrushes also come with special features like different cleaning modes, brush timers, whitening polishers, gum massagers and pressure sensors. All of these factors help you ensure that you maintain an optimum level of oral hygiene and dental health. An electronic toothbrush is an especially great gift for someone with arthritis who may have a difficult time maneuvering a manual toothbrush.
Clinical comparative research has proven that sonic toothbrushes – such as the Phillips Sonicare or OralB Professional Series – are more effective at removing plaque than normal electric toothbrushes. Sonic toothbrushes use high velocity speeds to eliminate plaque and emit high frequency sound waves to create air pockets between teeth and the toothbrush, ensuring that every surface in your mouth is cleaned. Most sonic toothbrushes also come equipped with the latest technology like timers, self-cleaning UV sanitizers and other features.
