3 advantages of electric toothbrushes
There are several advantages of using electric toothbrushes. These include gentle brushing, a built-in timer and effective cleaning. However, what kind of toothbrush you use is not as important as proper oral hygiene and your brushing habits.
First let us introduce our newest electric toothbrush, Jordan Clean Smile Electric Toothbrush. It was made in collaboration with Wilfa and comes in environmentally friendly packaging without plastic. The toothbrush combines the effectiveness of electric toothbrushes with the user-friendliness of a manual one. Next, here are three advantages of using an electric toothbrush:
1. Effective and gentle brushing
Brushing too hard is a common problem, it is actually found among 3 of 4 people. Using an electric toothbrush can help with this as it automatically stops if you are brushing too aggressively. This can also help minimize damage to your teeth, whilst ensuring effective cleaning.
2. Easier to follow the 2-minute recommendation
Did you know that dentists recommend brushing your teeth for 2 minutes? This might feel like a long time, but it is worth it to maintain good dental hygiene and healthy teeth. Our electric toothbrush has a built-in timer that makes sure that you brush your teeth for the recommended amount of time.
3. Round toothbrush head
A tooth has 5 sides, this is something we may forget whilst brushing our teeth. Manual toothbrushes require proper brushing technique. On the other hand, electric toothbrushes give you the extra help you need to keep your teeth healthy and clean. This is because electric toothbrushes have a round brush head that is designed to effectively clean between your teeth.
Remember to change the toothbrush head
Just as with regular toothbrushes, it is important to change the brush head of your electric toothbrush every 3 months, or earlier if needed. Research shows, when the brush is worn it is not as effective and removes less plaque than a new brush. Changing the brush head will thus contribute to healthier and cleaner teeth.
