Upgrade Your Oral Health With An Electric Toothbrush

Upgrade Your Oral Health With An Electric Toothbrush

Experience that dentist-clean feeling every day when you upgrade your manual toothbrush to an electric model. The rechargeable battery-operated spin brushes offer superior plaque removal and excellent gum stimulation. Manual toothbrushes rely on continuous wrist and hand movement to complete brushing properly. This is much more labour intensive than relying on a quality electric toothbrush. Capri Dental in Kelowna discusses the benefits of upgrading to an electric toothbrush:

  • Some toothbrushes have a sensor that alerts when brushing too hard.
  • Studies show an increase in plaque removal of 21% after 3 months.
  • Gingivitis has been reduced by 11 % after 3 months.
  • Less hand and wrist mobility required with electric toothbrushes.
  • Certain models have a built-in brushing timer and digital reminders of when it is time to replace the head.

Remove More Bacteria From Your Mouth

The technology features pulsating, rotating, oscillating bristles that can sweep along the grooves of the teeth and the gum line to delicately and efficiently remove plaque bacteria. Many people love the way these brushes offer a thorough clean. Simply hold the electric toothbrush in place and let it work its’ magic from tooth to tooth. It is excellent for brushing your tongue and all surfaces. The gentle stimulation provided to the gums helps to enhance blood flow to the area. Healthy circulation to your oral tissues is an important factor for keeping your smile healthy. Our team can recognize which clients have taken the leap from manual tooth-brushing to electric options. It is amazing to see the smile benefits from one dental appointment to the next!

Arthritis & Mobility Sufferers Love The Electric Toothbrush Upgrade

Many individuals who have arthritis in their fingers, hands and wrists find daily brushing tedious and even painful. Electric toothbrushes help you to maximize your cleaning capacity with less physical requirements. It can be tricky to brush back and forth and in circles with a manual toothbrush when there are mobility factors involved. People tend to brush for the recommended two minutes or longer due to the built-in timer technology and the fact that they only have to hold and guide the brush but the spinning brushes remove the bacteria more effectively. It can be difficult to keep track of how long you have been brushing and fall into your old, less thorough routine with a manual brush.

From Grandma to the Kids, Your Family Will Love Brushing Their Teeth Even More!

Electric toothbrushes come in a variety of models and price points so everyone can experience better oral health. Kids can have fun seeing who’s timer goes off first and parents don’t have to dread treats before bed any longer. Teaching kids the proper brushing technique, how to slowly move their spin brush from tooth to tooth and along their sulcus and gum line will dramatically improve your family’s smiles. Brushing the tongue and roof of the mouth, along with the gums is equally as important as cleaning your enamel. If toothbrushing has become a hassle at your house, it is definitely time to upgrade and rejuvenate the situation. Right around Halloween is an excellent time to make the switch for better oral health.
