How To Choose An Electric Toothbrush?

Posted by LouisWillis on December 14th, 2020


The market is full of electric toothbrushes, but not all perform their cleaning function well. Electrical appliance retailers will be happy to sell you everything that looks like a toothbrush. At the same time, they do not quite understand the differences between individual models, sonic or oscillating systems, they do not distinguish between spare heads and they do not understand the unique needs of the customers themselves. Likewise, various studies and opinions appear every month as to whether an electric toothbrush is suitable for daily teeth cleaning and whether it is safe. In the following article, we will help you clarify when it is appropriate to use an electric brush and what type of electric brush to choose.

Tips To Choosing An Electric Toothbrush

We should choose an electric toothbrush according to the individual needs of the individual. It is therefore not true that what is suitable for one must be suitable for the other. It is necessary to realize whether our teeth are perfectly fine and we are only bothered by their discoloration, or whether we suffer from a certain sensitivity of the teeth or other more serious problems. The truth is that an electric toothbrush is not indispensable and we can do with a manual toothbrush.

However, for many users, this is the only way to keep their teeth and gums healthy.

Learning the correct technique of brushing your teeth with a manual toothbrush requires a certain skill, while the electric toothbrush cleans "itself" by simply applying it to the teeth. It can remove plaque several times more effectively from both the surface of the teeth and the interdental spaces and helps to improve cleaning habits thanks to various functions. Only after using an electric brush will you finally recognize the fresh feeling of smooth, really perfectly cleaned teeth.

Oscillating toothbrushes

The leading manufacturer of rotary-oscillating brushes is the Braun Oral-B brand.

These brushes work on the principle of semi-rotational movement - oscillation (wipes plaque) and gentle pulsating movements (disrupts plaque) - only in higher models with 3D technology. 3D technology is very effective for removing plaque and unwanted discoloration from the surface of the teeth, which will be appreciated by lovers of coffee, tea or wine and, of course, smokers. The length of brushing is very important for proper tooth cleaning. Dentists agree on a recommended brushing time of 2 minutes. Oral-B electric brushes use the "timer" function, which alerts you to the end of the recommended time by briefly interrupting the movement.

Higher models have a 2-minute TIMER divided into 4x30 second intervals, for even cleaning of individual quadrants (parts) of the mouth. Uneven care given to the front teeth compared to the back chairs and inner sides is the most common cause of tooth decay. By giving you a timer that reminds you that you can move to the next quadrant of teeth, this risk is greatly reduced. If you still want to do a simple test to see if your teeth are perfectly cleaned, we recommend tablets to indicate dental plaque. In the short term, it stains problematic areas where dental plaque remains and thus reveals shortcomings.

Advantages of the oscillating brush

The oscillating movement in combination with pulsations perfectly removes resistant dental plaque and significantly reduces the clenching of teeth.

* The small shaped head surrounds the tooth from all sides and allows its perfect cleaning, reaching hard-to-reach places.

* Timer cleaning time function - Timer

* Low toothpaste consumption - small head + oscillation = little toothpaste

* Clean and smooth teeth without the need to learn proper cleaning techniques.

* Wireless operation - rechargeable battery.

The use of electric brushes is completely safe in compliance with the principles and helps to significantly improve the health of teeth and gums in people who have not mastered the technique of proper cleaning with a manual brush.

Although electric brushes are very powerful at removing plaque from interdental spaces, it is advisable to use high-quality interdental brushes as with the use of manual brushes . Daily care of the oral cavity should also be accompanied by the use of an oral irrigator - a dental shower , which plays an important role in the prevention of gingivitis and other diseases of the oral cavity.
