Electric Toothbrushes & Orthodontic Patients
Electric Toothbrushes are More Effective at Cleaning Teeth Than Manual Toothbrushes
Some people who are using manual toothbrushes have excellent oral health. However, more frequently, this is not the case. Switching to an electric toothbrush can make an immediate and positive impact on their oral health.
Why are Electric Toothbrushes More Effective?
The reason electric toothbrushes are more effective than manual brushes is because electric toothbrushes provide for more “brush strokes” per minute. In fact, some electric toothbrushes are able to provide more brush strokes in 2 minutes than manual toothbrushes can deliver in a month. This makes them vastly more effective at removing plaque and preventing gum diseases.
