While it is possible to brush amazingly well with a soft, manual toothbrush- many of us tend to lapse a little with our technique, or the time we spend cleaning- especially when we're busy rushing out the door in the morning!
We see the difference electric toothbrushes can make daily in terms of improving gum health and preventing tooth decay. Electric brushes make accessing around hard to reach areas much easier, and inclusions like pressure sensors and timers help to keep your brushing on track. The new ones even come with an app you can put on your smartphone that tracks your brushing throughout the month, and awards you five stars for brushing well!
When purchasing an electric toothbrush, it is really worth investing in something high quality. The supermarket electric brushes just aren't going to give you the same result as something with more features.
Here's what to look for in an electric toothbrush-
- Timer or smart guide- to keep your brushing on track
- Pressure Sensor- to ensure you aren't pressing too hard, potentially damaging the gums
- Powerful but Gentle- the brush should have different settings
Our favourites are the Braun/ Oral B brushes; either the new Smart Series models, the Oral B Black or the Triumph.
Please let us know if you have any questions regarding electric toothbrushes, and happy brushing!
