Have you considered using an electric toothbrush? If you are still undecided about making the switch, consider these three things:

Built-in timer

The American Dental Association recommends that each toothbrushing session should last two minutes, and we agree. With an electric toothbrush, it is easier than ever to achieve this. Many electric toothbrushes have built-in timers, alerting you every 30 seconds to change which quadrant of your mouth you are focusing on. This allows you to spend equal time on each section of your mouth, and to be sure you are getting a full two minutes in. The convenience is simply unparalleled by a standard toothbrush.

A more efficient brush

An electric toothbrush does the work for you, and much more efficiently. The vibrating bristles are able to remove much more plaque and dislodge many more food particles than a standard manual brush ever could. The best part: you don’t have to work any harder to achieve this. In fact, you will be expending less effort than you would with a manual brush, while getting better results. It is truly a win-win situation.

A deeper clean

As we just mentioned, an electric toothbrush is able to remove more plaque and food particles than a standard brush ever could. This results in a much deeper clean, every time you brush. Considering you are supposed to brush two times a day, every day, this will really add up to a healthier, happier mouth in no time.

As you can see, there are many advantages to using an electric toothbrush. But even the best toothbrush in the world can’t do it all. That is why it is important to visit your dentist in Arlington at least two times a year for your standard checkup and cleaning. Call us today to schedule your next visit.
