A: Electric toothbrushes are extremely beneficial and work well for many patients. Many patients have a difficult time using a manual toothbrush to remove plaque. The ability of power toothbrushes to help assist us with brushing better than we can replicate ourselves is truly its greatest benefit.
Electric toothbrushes are clinically proven to remove plaque better than manual toothbrushes. Electric toothbrushes also help with brushing our gums more gently. Extra-soft bristle heads and auto shut-off features (on some models) help aid in this. Also with some dental conditions like patients in braces or patients with recession and sensitivity, power brushes can make a difference overall with their dental hygiene. There are many other reasons to invest in power toothbrushes including those who have major work including implants and crowns and those who suffer from dry mouth. Electric toothbrushes come in all different shapes, sizes and models. They also range in price from $15 to $150. Always look for deals, including at your dental office. And right now, it is always fun to visit your dentist in Grimes with our power tooth brush promotions.
