Electric toothbrushes provide a dentist-like clean feeling in your mouth after you brush your teeth. Tiny bristles move much faster than a manual tooth brush to remove plaque and grime.
However, not all electric toothbrushes are created equal. A basic electric toothbrush found in the grocery store can do a good job cleaning your teeth, but a sonic electric toothbrush gives you an even deeper cleaning.
Electric toothbrushes clean so deeply that they also help remove stains on your teeth. If you smoke or drink coffee on a regular basis, you can benefit from the stain-removing power of an electric tooth brush. Using an electric toothbrush in combination with a whitening tooth paste can have an even greater effect.
When bacteria in the mouth grows out of control, bad breath is offensive. Electric toothbrushes wipe out bacteria by cleaning hard-to-reach places. To get an even better result, brush your tongue with a light coating of toothpaste and floss. Brush for a minimum of three minutes and rinse with antiseptic mouthwash.
Brushing your teeth with an electric toothbrush protects your teeth and gums because less pressure is needed to clean the teeth. An electric tooth brush moves much faster without added pressure and provides a deeper cleaning.
