There is a good reason why we really need to consider the current state of our teeth. It is a fact that we have over 600 types of bacteria running around in our mouths which build up on teeth and becoming plaque. The plaque will results in tooth decay, gingivitis (gum disease) and peritonitis (bone disease). Thus we need to brush our teeth well.

It is possible to brush your teeth effectively with a manual toothbrush however an electric toothbrush will provides a different experience compared to a manual toothbrush particularly for people with arthritis or conditions which trouble them from brushing their teeth well. In addition the bristle movement of an electrical toothbrush can help to remove a lot of plaque from your teeth and improve your gum health.

Choosing a toothbrush from various models and brands over the market can be a headache as well as the new addition of electrical toothbrushes in today’s market. The next question is whether to opt for manual or electric toothbrush.

There are several benefits that you can get from using an electric toothbrush. For beginners, the experience might tend to last awhile as you in fact don’t need a great deal of ability or brushing power when using an electric toothbrush. However for individuals who struggle to brush their teeth properly with a manual toothbrush, an electric toothbrush can provide an improvement for their dental experience. In the same time electrical toothbrush designed for kids with colorful photos and music will make it easier to persuade them in brushing their teeth.

Although it looks like that old-fashioned manual toothbrush is lagging behind compared to an electric toothbrush – this might not be true. A manual toothbrush has many edges and characteristics that can help you in brushing your teeth well plus they are fairly inexpensive and can be easily found in stores. If you are replacing your toothbrush within 3-4 months as recommended by your dentist, then a manual toothbrush can be an economical option for your. On the other hand you don’t have to shop for a replacement electronic toothbrush every time as you have got to shop for new brush extensions however those will also be expensive when compared to manual toothbrush.

In fact electric toothbrushes, which are more expensive, can’t provide satisfying results if you don’t know the proper way to brush your teeth. Excellent oral health is not solely depends on the toothbrush that you use. Instead, how you utilize your toothbrush has more impacts on your oral health. When using an electric toothbrush, your technique depends on which model you’re using as the technology of electric toothbrush varies – some models brush your teeth using vibrating, sonic or rotating technology.

Brushing your teeth isn’t a sophisticated activity, but there is a right and wrong means.

A toothbrush with the proper size and shape for your mouth can help you in brushing your teeth well. An advantage of an electric toothbrush in this matter is that they’re significantly smaller than a manual toothbrush. This enables you to  find hard angles at the rear of your mouth easier. If you choose to invest in an electric toothbrush, make sure that the toothbrush is easy and comfortable to use. I would like to recommend Oral-B Professional Healthy Clean Precision 1000 Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush to be included in your list.

Whether you decide on a manual or an electric toothbrush, select one with soft bristles. For electric toothbrush, change the bristles on the electric brush when they become worn down. Toothbrush needs to be replaced every 3 months or when the bristles are not straight and firm anymore.

Regular and correct brushing technique will result in healthier teeth and gums.
