In our last blog, we looked at some of the different advantages that can be gained from using an electric toothbrush. Anything that can simplify and improve your oral healthcare routine is great. In this blog, we will look at a few additional benefits that you can gain by utilizing an electric toothbrush in place of your old-fashioned one.

Deep cleaning

An electric toothbrush can give you a much deeper cleaning than a standard manual toothbrush. The rotating heads on the electric toothbrush can penetrate the spaces between your teeth with ease, dislodging food particles that a manual toothbrush could never reach. Additionally, the power of the rotating heads is much more effective against plaque build up. Using an electric toothbrush will leave your mouth much cleaner.

Ease of use

At the end of the day, electric toothbrushes are extremely easy use. Anyone from children to seniors can effectively brush their teeth using an electric toothbrush. Any time that something is easy to do, you are more likely to do it. Brushing your teeth daily is one of the most important aspects to an effective oral healthcare routine.

As you can see, there are many benefits to be gained from switching to an electric toothbrush. No matter what type of toothbrush you decide to use, make sure you are brushing for at least two minutes, two times a day. Are you due for your six month checkup with your Washington, DC dentist?
