Manual Toothbrushes versus Electric Toothbrush

Posted .

Are you caught up in the craze about which toothbrush to choose from? If so, we have exciting news for you! Here at Bright Dental Care in Bakersfield, California, our team of specialists takes pride in giving you the answers to your oral health care questions you need to keep your smile in pristine shape. That is why we are going to talk to you about choosing a manual toothbrush or an electric toothbrush.

Manual toothbrushes are the basic, traditional toothbrushes you can use to brush your teeth each day. Choosing a manual toothbrush with gentle or soft bristles can help clean your teeth well when used properly. Using your hand to brush back and forth or up and down is very safe and effective to use for removing plaque and bacteria from your teeth.

Electric toothbrushes are also popular to use. With the press of a simple button, the bristles move for you as you gently move it around your teeth in your mouth. Many of them have a timer you can use to mark when two minutes have passed, so you know you have brushed for long enough. This toothbrush is also highly effective at keeping your smile clean.

In the end, the important thing to remember is any toothbrush is better to choose than no toothbrush at all. That is why Dr. Yong Eon Park encourages you to brush to keep your oral health in outstanding condition. Both kinds of toothbrushes can get the job done if you only keep up the twice a day habit and use them.
