Should I Upgrade to a Fancy Toothbrush?

Dental Hygiene and Teeth Cleaning Bismarck NDIf you’re obsessed with your teeth like we are, you know that brushing your teeth every day is a must. And we brush and floss twice a day. But, do you ever wonder if you could be doing more for your dental health? Have you been considering investing in an electric toothbrush lately? Before you go out and buy one, make sure to do your research. You may benefit from one, or you could be fine with what you’re currently using. Keep reading to learn more about electric toothbrushes.

Electric toothbrushes are toothbrushes that are able to vibrate and/or rotate, which helps remove plaque from teeth and gums. The vibration causes micro-movements that clean your teeth every time you move your toothbrush along your teeth. They can be battery-powered, or charge in a base that’s plugged into an outlet in your home.

Electric toothbrushes can range in price and efficiency.

Easier to Use

Electric toothbrushes could be easier to use for certain people, especially those who have mobility issues or concerns. If you or someone you know has mobility issues, such as carpal tunnel, arthritis, or multiple sclerosis, you may benefit from an electric toothbrush.


An electric toothbrush with a built-in timer can help you better gauge your brushing time. Brushing your teeth long enough can sufficiently remove plaque from your teeth and gums.

Orthodontic Appliances

Electric toothbrushes can be particularly helpful for people who have orthodontic appliances, like braces, because it makes reaching and cleaning certain spots easier.

People with appliances who already had good oral health may not be impacted, whether they use an electric toothbrush or a manual one. But, if you have had issues in the past, an electric toothbrush could make life with a new appliance easier or ease the transition.
