Which Toothbrush Is Right For You

The electric toothbrush has become very popular in recent years; some even say it provides superior dental care.  But how does it actually compare to manual brushing?  Manual toothbrushes are inexpensive and very accessible.  Some dentists even give them away.  Manual toothbrushes are also easier to travel with than electric toothbrushes.  It seems the electric toothbrush is better at removing plaque and preventing gum disease, but make sure you are not applying too much pressure.  One advantage to a manual toothbrush is you can always feel the amount of pressure you are applying to your teeth.  In some cases you can’t feel as well with the electric toothbrush.  Electric toothbrushes with rotating-oscillating bristles are the most effective and a good choice for anyone.
Whether you choose a manual or an electric toothbrush, choose one with soft bristles and be sure to change the bristles on the electric brush when they become worn down.  Always remember to brush.
