The best way of preventing plaque is by having a proper oral care. By using good dental products approved by the ADA you can achieve the performance of not having to deal with plaque. Unfortunately, not all the products you find on the market are safe to fit your needs. And this is the time plaque make its way into your life. In time, plaque will introduce your teeth to cavities, and that is when the bigger problems come. That is why researchers advise using an electric brush alongside a manual toothbrush. You can use one in the morning, and one before you go to bed. Furthermore, to make the process much more efficient, you can add to your oral care routine a fluoride toothpaste and antibacterial rinse.

But why isn’t a manual toothbrush enough?

Manual toothbrushes are an efficient tool for cleaning your teeth. The bad news they do not have the possibility to proper clean between the teeth and around them. As a result, plaque will slowly accumulate over time leading to tartar, tooth decay, and many other dental issues. That is why it is best to try to slowly introduce an electric toothbrush to your dental care routine.

Why is the electric brush better?

Most electric toothbrushes are designed especially to adapt to each individual tooth. And as they are inspired by dental tools, they are able to clean deep between your teeth and remove the unwanted food particles and the accumulated plaque.  In addition, electric brushes may pulsate to loosen the plaque while the oscillating rotative head sweeps away the plaque and residues.

Electric brushes offer you up to 48.000 movements per minute while with the manual brush only 300 to 600 moves per minute are possible. The difference is astonishing. Another feature most electric brushes have is a two-minute timer that helps you have a proper oral care routine.

The electric toothbrush is useful, but it’s still not enough!

Even with proper oral hygiene you need to comprehend the limits of nature. Dental cavities and periodontitis can still make its way into your mouth. That is why you need to visit a dentist at least twice a year. The dentist can check the health state your teeth and gums and also treat problems that appeared along the way.
