This electric toothbrush provides a better clean
One of the most important decisions in maintaining healthy teeth and gums is selecting a toothbrush. It may seem easy to do, but finding a toothbrush that will keep your oral health in top shape can be a daunting task, especially in a saturated market. However, our practice has found a toothbrush that meets rigorous standards: Sonicare.
Made to help you brush properly, Sonicare is a line of electric toothbrushes that uses rapid, side-to-side vibrations for most efficient cleaning. These toothbrushes are superior to not only to competitors’ electric toothbrushes, but manual ones as well. There are several reasons:
- More effective at removing plaque, especially in hard-to-reach areas of the mouth. A recent study shows that Sonicare removes 10 percent more plaque than its competitor, Oral-B, and another study found that Sonicare reduces 47 percent more plaque than a manual toothbrush. The effectiveness lies in the 30,000 brush head strokes per minute, which is what breaks up the plaque biofilm on the teeth.
- Improves gum health in two weeks by reducing gingivitis and gingival bleeding in comparison to a manual toothbrush. Sonicare toothbrushes have been found to decrease the overall incidence of gingivitis and associated bleeding by almost 40 percent.
- Brushes teeth for two minutes, which is the amount of time recommended by the American Dental Association for best oral hygiene. Sonicare toothbrushes automatically shut off after two minutes so you can be confident knowing you’ve brushed your teeth long enough. Since not all Oral-B toothbrushes come with this option, you’re more likely to brush your teeth for a mere 30 to 60 seconds, which is the average amount of time people spend manually brushing.
Sonicare is the best toothbrush for optimizing oral health. For more information on the benefits of Sonicare toothbrushes, and to schedule an appointment, please contact us us today.
