Recently, you may have noticed a rise in the appeal of powered toothbrushes. With all the buzz surrounding them, are they really superior to a manual brush?
Dental experts agree that a regular toothbrush can offer the same level of cleanliness that an electric toothbrush can; nevertheless, the ease of the electric toothbrush is the real divider in this dispute. When brushing with a regular brush, meticulousness is crucial. It is recommended, in order to keep a healthy smile, that you have to brush at least twice a day, for two minutes at a time. Considering how busy we can be, this can seem like a drag.
Electric toothbrushes have caught on for their ability to do almost everything for the user. With the choices of brush heads and different modes (like whitening, deep cleaning, and sensitivity), they make a comprehensive cleaning simple. In addition, they are good for those who have specials needs or problems with dexterity.
Ultimately, choosing between a manual or a powered toothbrush is up to the user. There isn’t any solid evidence that one style is better than the other; instead, it just boils down to the way of life and preference of the person using the toothbrush. On one hand, regular toothbrushes are inexpensive, easily portable, and do not need batteries or to be charged. On the other hand, they will require a little more effort from the user.
Which do you prefer: powered or traditional?
