Keeping oral hygiene up to date is important for a number of reasons. In addition to preventing bad breath, flossing and brushing your teeth daily prevents cavities, tartar and gingivitis, caused by the uncontrolled proliferation of bacteria in the oral cavity.
In this daily activity, the electric toothbrush can be a great ally for bringing more comfort and practicality. But is it worth investing in this type of equipment to perform oral hygiene?
Check out the benefits of using an electric brush daily.
Facilitates oral hygiene
Although it is a routine activity, when brushing you run the risk of not doing it correctly or of reaching some difficult places. When using an electric toothbrush, this process is facilitated, since it is only necessary to guide the appliance through the surfaces that need to be brushed.
Preserves the health of teeth and gums
Another problem with manual brushing is the force applied during the process. Those who do not use a lot of force may end up not properly removing plaque from their teeth.
Those who use excessive force, on the other hand, may be harming their teeth (with the removal of protective enamel) and gums in the process. The electric toothbrush, with its vibrating movements, is capable of deep cleaning without harming oral health.
It is easy and practical to use
Electric toothbrushes are easy to use items. Children and the elderly can use it normally during their oral hygiene, and for those who use orthodontic braces it is no different, as it assists in a thorough cleaning without hindrance.
It is also important to note that these devices are rechargeable, which facilitates daily use. When the bristles are worn out, just exchange them for a refill.
It is more efficient than the conventional brush
Finally, it is worth mentioning that the electric brush is more efficient than the conventional one when cleaning teeth and gums. Thanks to its rotating and vibrating movement, this device is capable of deep cleaning – much better than we could do without your help.
Now that we know its benefits, check out some models of electric brushes.
