Brushing your teeth is, obviously, extremely important. Unfortunately, people often neglect their routines, and their brushing isn’t thorough enough. If this sounds like you, consider getting an electric toothbrush. There are numerous benefits that an electric toothbrush can provide you over a manual toothbrush. Here at Parkcrest Dental, we have various electric toothbrushes for you to choose from, so next time you have an appointment pick one up! Here are some of the reasons the team at Parkcrest Dental loves them.
They Are More Effective
When you use an electric toothbrush, it does most of the work for you. All you have to do is direct where the toothbrush goes, and it takes care of the rest. It takes care of the amount of pressure applied, which is sometimes hard to do on your own. They also rotate at high speeds, meaning you get more brushing power to fight plaque and bacteria. In addition, since you’re removing all the normally hard to reach plaque and bacteria, you’ll find it easier to fight bad breath. Overall, an electric toothbrush is much more deep cleaning than a manual toothbrush. Of course, nothing is as thorough as getting a cleaning from your dentist at Parkcrest Dental, but it’s the next best thing.

They Take Out the Guesswork
As we mentioned, with an electric toothbrush you don’t have to guess how hard or soft to brush, but that’s not all. Most electric toothbrushes come with a built in timer that shuts off the toothbrush after a full two minutes of brushing. This way you know that you’ve completed your full recommended brushing routine. Also, many electric toothbrushes have quadrant timers built in, where it notifies you every 30 seconds to move on to a new section of your mouth. This is useful for getting a full all-around clean every time you brush.
