Why should you use an electric toothbrush?

Take Care Of Your Teeth - Denver DentistsEver wonder why using an electric toothbrush is such a great idea! When you visit Dr. Jim’s office for a cleaning, one of the first things they are going to ask you is if you have been using your electric toothbrush. We thought you might like to know why we are such nags about it!

5 Reasons To Use An Electric Toothbrush

Reason #1 – An electronic toothbrush can make up to 3,000 motions a minute (most of us can’t come even close to that manually!)

Reason #2 – If left to our own devices without a timer handy, we probably don’t brush as long as we should. The electric toothbrushes have a handy feature that pauses to let you know when you are done!

Reason #3 – Some configurations of bristles have been shown to be better at plaque and preventing gum disease. It seems that “rotating-oscillating — appear to be more effective than manual brushes and other electric brushes that spin in only one direction.” everydayhealth.com

Reason #4 – While they may cost a little more up front, the maintenance cost has been found to be lower as the bristles last longer than conventional tooth brushes. Additionally, you can get heads for each family member and just one base that you can keep charged up!

Reason #5 – If you have any any trouble with your hands, like carpal tunnel syndrome or arthritis, using an electric toothbrush is a great solution. Instead of adding more repetitive (painful) tasks to your day, spend just a couple of minutes being nice to your teeth AND your hands!
