Are Electrical Toothbrushes Better Than Manual?

When it’s time to remove food debris and plaque, many general dentistry experts agree that brushing technique and the duration of brushing are more important than the exact type of toothbrush. Using a soft-bristled brush, either manual or electric, and brushing all sides of every tooth with gentle, circular motions for two minutes twice daily can help keep your smile healthy. Since both manual and electric toothbrushes can get the job done, you can consider other factors when deciding which type to buy.

If you’re a parent who is struggling to get the kids to brush their teeth, then an electric toothbrush may be best because it may hold more appeal for children. Electric toothbrushes are also ideal for seniors and for individuals with dexterity problems or other fine motor skill impairments.
