Brushing your teeth twice daily for 2 minutes is the foundation of good oral health and disease prevention. However, using a manual toothbrush, most of us do not take the 2-minute time to brush, leaving the teeth vulnerable to bacterial infections, plaque buildup, cavities, and gum inflammation, among other periodontal diseases.
So, what is the solution? Using sonic technology toothbrushes can help. These brushes have the edge over manual toothbrushes by reducing plaque by 12% within 1-3 months and by 22% after 3 months of usage. Though electric brushes are expensive, they help improve your overall health in the long run. However, there are more advantages to using sonic technology toothbrushes.
This blog post will walk you through the top five benefits.
Boost oral health
We are all taught to brush our teeth thoroughly since we were little. Despite our best efforts, we cannot maintain good oral health. It is because manual toothbrushes cannot reach the far ends and between the teeth to remove all the plaque and tartar built. The sonic technology toothbrushes have a rotating head with bristles that can reach every corner of your mouth, effectively removing food stuck to the teeth and helping eliminate foul odour and plaque.
Thorough teeth brushing
Sonic technology toothbrushes have an in-built timer set for equal time for each quadrant of your teeth. The toothbrush has 31,000 brush strokes per minute, ensuring a better, longer brushing and a great, clean feeling. Kids are often one of the biggest beneficiaries of these toothbrushes, as they do not brush properly to remove all the food buildup. The toothbrush is a good investment as you can count on it to get to those hard-to-reach places kids usually miss using a manual toothbrush.
Easy to use
A sonic toothbrush is easier to use than a manual toothbrush as it can reach all the crevices in the teeth, like the back molars. It helps reduce gum infections and avoid tooth decay. You can enjoy easy brushing as the toothbrush does all the hard work. It has an easy-to-use handle that makes brushing a pleasurable experience and not an everyday chore. Being suitable to handle, the sonic technology toothbrush requires less effort. It stops you from brushing your teeth in a rough manner, which may harm the gums.
Deeper clean for orthodontic patients
Patients who have braces often have issues cleaning their teeth, and sonic technology toothbrushes can help them. They can clean their teeth more thoroughly as the vibrating brush head allows the bristles to get into smaller spaces more quickly than a manual toothbrush. The toothbrush removes all the food stuck in the teeth, removing plaque and tartar buildup.
Get rid of bad breath
Bad breath indicates food and plaque lodged in the nooks and crannies between the teeth and the gums. A sonic technology toothbrush can work to get rid of bad breath as it eliminates the food between your teeth, rendering a clean mouth.
While everyone can benefit from using sonic technology toothbrushes, they are not a replacement for professional cleanings and routine checkups. Please contact dental hygienists at Teeth Whitening Fairies to learn more about sonic toothbrushes. They will guide you on how to maintain good oral hygiene and use the toothbrush and discuss its benefits.
