Manual Toothbrush vs. Electric Toothbrush

By: Impressions Dental Spa
DENVER - Dec. 27, 2014 - PRLog -- ·         Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush: A rechargeable electric toothbrush, also known as a “power toothbrush”, is the kind you plug into the wall to recharge, keeping the handle and replacing the brush head every three months. Rechargeable electric toothbrushes differ among the kind of cleaning technology they use, such as oscillating-rotating (3D Cleaning Action) or sonic technology.

·         Regular Manual Toothbrush: In contrast, regular manual toothbrushes are the basic toothbrushes you’re probably accustomed to with a plastic handle and various nylon bristle designs on the brush head. This is the most common type of toothbrush, and it doesn’t require any power sources.

·         Battery Power Toothbrush: Those who want a dose of power but are weary of electric toothbrushes may like battery power toothbrushes. Like electric toothbrushes, battery power toothbrushes are sometimes simply called “power toothbrushes” due to their use of an AA battery. While similar in design to regular manual toothbrushes, battery power toothbrushes have just enough vibration to add some extra cleaning action.

Using the correct toothbrush is one of the most important factors in your independent dental hygiene routine. With the rise in popularity in electric toothbrushes, you may find yourself wondering if you should switch from a manual toothbrush. It is no secret that every toothbrush provides different benefits to your oral health. Some brushes are better than others at plaque removal, and no brush is created equal. Before making a change, it is important to look at all your options to find you which is the best for you!

The three most common types of brush are the manual, battery power, and electric. Manual toothbrushes are simple and typically have multi-length textured bristles, gum stimulators, and tongue cleaners. A cheap alternative to the manual toothbrush is the battery power toothbrush. These are a bit more complex than your regular manual and have bristles designed to pulsate along with vibrations. Finally, electric toothbrushes offer even more benefits and extras. Most electric brushes have multiple brushing modes, a built in timer, and oscillating-rotating or sonic technology. When selecting a brush, take into account the extra features along with the price. While you may think your manual toothbrush is good enough to get the job done, the added benefits of a more expensive brush may save you money in the long run.

An electric toothbrush with all the bells and whistles can reduce your chance of oral infections and reduce your chance of gum disease and gingivitis. Electric brushes more thoroughly remove plaque, keep you from brushing too hard, and make sure you brush for a long enough period of time. All of these things add up, and save you money at your next office visit.
