I prefer electric toothbrushes over manual toothbrushes.
|Soft bristle toothbrushes are as effective at removing plaque and debris as hard bristle toothbrushes, but soft bristle brushes don't cause damage to the soft tissue in the mouth.|
Electric toothbrushes remove plaque significantly better than manual ones. Now people may ask which electric toothbrush is best. Well, there are numerous companies that produce numerous models. There are some inexpensive choices and some expensive choices. There are rotating, oscillating, vibrating and combination types. There are many different sizes and different shapes. Each have their advantages and disadvantages. I can see why the consumer can be incredibly confused with the apparently endless choices.

These brushes can range in price from 15-200 dollars. Very good brushes can be found around the 60-140 dollar range. They can be found at places such as Walmart and Walgreen's. One may argue that they are expensive. Well, yes they are. However, restorative dental work is considerably more expensive and more importantly, it is priceless to maintain natural teeth for life.
Discuss your options with your dentist to determine which may be most suitable for you.
