We cannot overstate the importance of brushing teeth twice a day.
When you brush your teeth, you remove dental plaque that puts you at risk for tooth decay and gum disease. During your next dental checkup, our dentists may ask what toothbrush you are using.
We have found that patients benefit greatly when they switch to an electric toothbrush. At GR Family Dental, we trust certain brands for our patients, including 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.
