Electric Brushes Beat Manual Toothbrushes Hands Down

by Evesham Dental, on 17th September 2019 | 0 comments

Electric toothbrushes will clean your teeth and gums much better than a manual toothbrush say the results of an 11-year-long study, highlighted by Evesham Dental Health Team in Broadway Road.

Scientists found that people who use an electric toothbrush have healthier gums, less tooth decay and also keep their teeth for longer, compared with those who use a manual toothbrush.

The ground-breaking research took 11 years to complete and is the longest study of its kind into the effectiveness of electric versus manual brushing.

Further findings from the Journal of Clinical Periodontology, found that electric toothbrushes resulted in 22% less gum recession and 18% less tooth decay over the 11-year period.

It is important that you understand the best way to use your electric toothbrush. If you would like to brush up on your skills (sorry, we couldn’t resist!), please speak to your hygienist at your next appointment.

Please remember that whether you are using a manual or electric toothbrush you should be brushing for two minutes, twice a day, with fluoride toothpaste.

Also, a good oral health routine would not be complete without using an interdental brush or floss once a day, before brushing, to dislodge any food or plaque between your teeth.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact Evesham Dental Health Team as our friendly team are very happy to help.
