Thinking about an electric toothbrush instead of your usual manual one might put a huge smile on your face! That’s because this is a powered version of your tried-and-true model, which means you’re doing a lot less work and you might be gaining some pretty impressive benefits, like improved plaque removal and a smile that feels extra clean. While this is all good stuff, our Columbia, TN team knows you may have yet to purchase one because you’re just not sure about some things. Allow us to offer our two cents on this oral health topic!
Does Price Indicate Successful Items?
We know that it’s so easy to fall victim to perceived value! This applies to many things, including your dental care. So, when you are considering an electric toothbrush for your oral health but you are also keenly aware of the broad pricing spectrum, our team suggests you think through what you really need and want for yourself. It’s good to limit yourself on price if you have a budget. However, as for reaching for a larger price tag because you think it will bring you better smile care, it won’t! Still want some help selecting one? Just ask for guidance during your next visit.
Should My Whole Family Switch?
Whether or not each member of your family should switch from a manual toothbrush to an electric toothbrush is a personal decision! If you have not yet used one but you switch and find that you love the benefits your choice is offering you, then we encourage you to move ahead on switching the whole family over if that’s something you think is a good plan. Remember to check in on the needs, preferences, and success of each family member to assess which type of brush works best on a case-by-case basis.
Won’t Electric Be Too Hard On My Smile?
Actually, when it comes to protecting your smile from oral health damage, an electric toothbrush can prove much easier to wield gently than a manual one! It might seem like this goes against logic but the truth is, the brush is so powerful, that you can instantly tell you don’t need to apply much pressure. So, you naturally tend to be very careful as you brush, which means you’re getting the plaque removal you need without the aggressive care that can cause problems.
