Using an Electronic Toothbrush

When using an electric toothbrush read the operating instructions supplied before first use. Use of an electric toothbrush differs slightly from that of a manual brush and in doing so you will ensure optimum cleaning performance.

If you have used other electric toothbrushes before, you should still check the manual because different models may use different techniques. Electric toothbrushes usually do much of the brushing for you. All you have to do is move the brush around much less and let the motorized bristle head do the work as you gently move it around your mouth. Applied with the correct pressure you will allow yourself to achieve a focused deep cleaning action on all areas.

Too much pressure or brushing for too long can lead to various problems including damage to the gums, the onset of gingivitis, and damaged teeth enamel.

Electronic Toothbrush Buying Guide

When choosing an electronic toothbrush, the Wisconsin Dental Association suggests that you keep in mind the same guidelines you would follow when selecting a manual toothbrush. An electronic toothbrush with a small head and soft to medium synthetic bristles is ideal.

Other things to keep in mind:

  • size of the brush head
  • price
  • warranty
  • length of bristles
  • shape of bristles
  • built in timer
  • head thickness of the handle for a good grip
