Turns out that contrary to marketing efforts by electric toothbrush companies, BOTH types of brushes are EFFECTIVE! The most important thing is that the brush gets used. It doesn’t do anybody any good to have a fancy toothbrush if it never gets used.
Here are a few key takeaways from our conversation with Dr.
When using an electric toothbrush:
-Don’t forget to change the brush head regularly.
-If you’re traveling make sure you have a way to power your toothbrush. It’s no good if it doesn’t work.
-If you can’t afford it, get a manual one and take care of those teeth.
When using a manual toothbrush:
-Be care not to brush too hard as it can cause damage.
-Be sure to brush every tooth.
-Be sure to brush for at least 2 minutes.
