Ordinary or electronic toothbrush
Ordinary or electronic toothbrush.. which is better?
It is not easy to suddenly decide to change your regular toothbrush to an electric toothbrush, will it be smooth, medium or rough teeth, and what kind will you choose, and is it worth the amount of money you will pay to get it?
In our blog, we will highlight all that is related to electric toothbrush, and compare it to regular brush.
- Regular and electric brush
Regular use of both types accomplishes the required task, when used in the correct manner, that is, for at least two minutes, but the electric brush covers a larger area which makes you clean a larger area with the same time period.
And when you use the regular brush for two minutes, you at least perform about 300 dental cleaning movements, compared to the thousands of electric brush movements.
* The advantages of electric brush
An electric brush is better for brushing your teeth than usual, as it has been found that people who use it have less cavities, difficult deposits, and pigmentation problems.
“The electric brush is better for people who have trouble using their hands easily,” says Eugene Anthony, professor at the College of Dentistry at New York University.
It will also be more beneficial for children, as they find it fun and easier to brush their teeth. Likewise for those who put on dental molds, they are able to clean all areas around the heart, and the dentist may prescribe them to people who think they are not brushing their teeth the right way.
- Electric toothbrush negatives
The regular brush costs a small amount that does not exceed a little money, while you need a lot of money to acquire an electric brush . Also, you need from time to time to replace the brush heads, which carries additional expenses,
- What types are available?
There are different types of electric brush, and the difference lies in the number of movements that take place per minute.
1- Rotary .. The head makes circular motions, that is, approximately 3000 to 7500 motions per minute.
2- Sonic .. It depends on the movement of the side to the side and not circular movements, and a speed equal to ten times the speed of the rotary, that is, almost 31000 movements per minute.
3- Ultrasonic .. It depends on the side-to-side movement as well, and it creates additional vibrating movements that can remove the hard deposits from the teeth.
4- Ionic .. Do not move the heads of the teeth, but they generate a light electrical current that can fight the hard deposits and remove them.
