The numerous toothbrush options available can make choosing difficult. The first difficult choice to make is whether to use a manual or electric model. At first glance, more expensive electronic models may seem too expensive, intimidating and awkward. However, that’s not necessarily the case. Dr. Alin Alkass notes that electronic toothbrushes have been proven to be much more effective than manual varieties according to current research studies. Toothbrush effectiveness dramatically increases when a patient switches to an electric brush. The power and speed of an electric motor is able to remove more plaque with less effort and time. So, brush regularly and thoroughly, but consider spending your money wisely by choosing an electric toothbrush. Soon you’ll be on your way to good oral health!
