There are many benefits to using an electric toothbrush over a manual toothbrush. Electric toothbrushes provide a cleaning solution that is much more thorough than what you are able to achieve with a manual brush, and remove a great deal more plaque. They are excellent at helping to prevent and even reverse gum disease such as gingivitis when used properly. Some of the more advanced models offer the option of UV brush sanitizing, gum massage, and special settings for sensitive teeth. Electric toothbrushes are also great at removing surface stains, such as those acquired via frequent coffee and wine consumption, or from cigarette smoking. They also help freshen breath by removing more bacteria than a manual brush. Arthritis suffers often find relief by using an electric toothbrush, as it eases the strain on hands and wrists that can come from using a manual brush properly. Dr. Kotre offers several different models of electric toothbrushes, including those by Oral-B and Sonicare. If you’re looking for a great, healthy, holiday gift this season for family members, all of our electric toothbrushes are being offered at a $10 discount, plus a $10 manufacturer’s rebate.
