Modern technology has countless ways of making things easier and better for us. We have machines for cleaning dishes and clothing far faster and better than by hand, doesn’t it makes sense that having a machine to help us brush our teeth would be advantageous?
An electric toothbrush is an easy way to get really, really clean teeth at home – with little effort or thought involved. Electric toothbrushes remove more plaque from hard-to-reach places than manual brushing. Make sure to use soft bristles to keep it gentle on the gums. Good-quality electric toothbrushes effectively clean teeth that have braces, and they are gentle on restorations like crowns, cement, implants, as well as thinning enamel.
Did you know that most people only brush an average of 45-70 seconds? It seems we are pretty bad at estimating time, so an electric toothbrush with a built-in timer is a great thing! Most of them have a built-in timer, so you never have to count or watch a clock or worry that you have under-brushed.
At Mall of Georgia Dentistry, we highly recommend investing in a good electric toothbrush if you aren’t already using one. We carry a coupe of really good models at our office, and through the end of December they are 15% off! Come get one for yourself or as a gift for someone you love. It’s one of the best things you can do to keep your smile healthy and bright!
