We cannot overstate the importance of brushing teeth twice a day.
We have found that patients benefit greatly when they switch to an electric toothbrush. Keep reading to learn more about the brands we trust for our patients, which include Oral-B and Phillips Sonicare.
Oral-B Electric Toothbrushes
Oral-B electric toothbrushes rotate, oscillate, and pulsate to remove plaque from teeth. The round brush head pulsates to loosen plaque and rotates to sweep it away. During teeth cleanings, it’s not uncommon for us to see plaque buildup along the gum line or in between teeth. We recommend Oral-B toothbrushes because the brush heads are small enough to surround each tooth to give you a thoroughly clean smile.
Sonicare Electric Toothbrushes
A Sonicare electric toothbrush delivers 31,000 brush strokes per minute. If you’re using a manual toothbrush to clean your teeth, you’ll want to ask your dentist about the benefits of switching to an electric toothbrush. A Sonicare toothbrush is gentle enough to remove dental plaque without aggravating sensitive or bleeding gums.
