Electric Brush versus Manual Brushes
There have been multiple studies comparing the effectiveness of manual brushes as opposed to electric brushes.
Although not all electric brushes are the same, these studies conclude that in general electric brushes are more efficient in controlling plaque than manual brushes. Theoretically, you can do a very good brushing with a regular hand brush, but the movements of an electric brush make the task easier and more effective.
We recommend Rotadent. It has a small head that spins 360 degrees that helps you access hard-to-reach areas of your mouth. This aspect is more important when you are talking about someone with orthodontic braces or a history of gum disease.
Rotadent microfilaments reaches areas that standard bristles may not be able to access. If you have any questions about electric toothbrushes and you live in Ottawa or surrounding area, give us a call today!
