Power up a winning smile

We continue brushing our teeth long after the tooth fairy has stopped leaving change under our pillow because we all know the importance of life-long healthy teeth and gums.

Did you know that an incorrect brushing technique can actually do more damage than good when it comes to protecting your smile? Electric toothbrushes make it easier to do a more thorough job, because they are designed to take the guesswork out of the right way to brush, and are far better at cleaning.

The Brush That’s All Business

Electric toothbrushescome with a range of features, depending on what end of the market they are placed at. While they are more expensive than ordinary brushes, an electric toothbrush is a worthwhile investment as they are far better at blasting away debris in between gaps, removing stains and polishing up pearly whites for a healthier, happier mouth.

The Sonic Toothbrush

A sonic toothbrushcleans in two ways. The first cleaning method comes from the scrubbing motion of the brush head against the teeth, just like conventional electric toothbrushes. But the second cleaning method is unique. The intense speed at which the bristles of the brush vibrate imparts energy to the fluids surrounding the teeth. This sets in motion waves of pressure, causing minute bubbles to form. Agitating these fluids helps to dislodge plaque, reaching into spaces that the brush can’t go.

A Word On Kiddies’ Electric Brushes

If your child hates brushing their teeth, then an electric toothbrushspecifically designed for fussy little mouths may be the answer. Many powered brushes come in a variety of character-themed styles, which your child will love and can inspire enthusiasm in children, making brushing easier.

Features You Should  Look Out For:

  • Timers: help to ensure you brush for long enough.
  • Detachable heads: are available in different sizes to suit your age and size of your mouth.
  • Power settings: allows you to choose your brushing pressure and speed.
  • Pressure sensors: stop the brush if there is too much pressure being applied.
  • Batteries: can be either disposable or rechargeable.
