While over 260 million Americans used manual toothbrushes in 2017, there are advantages to upgrading to an electric version. From their ability to maintain a strong brushing effect even when you’re tired to the sleek style and convenience they provide, electric toothbrushes can be a fun way to enhance your brushing routine. Explore some of our recommendations and see which of them might be ideal for you.
Why Try an Electric Toothbrush?
It’s entirely possible to keep your mouth happy with a standard toothbrush, but an electric toothbrush adds a variety of advantages. It spares you from the physical effort required to thoroughly brush your teeth – while some may overlook this, people with joint or arthritis issues will greatly appreciate it. Also, many people prefer the guiding motion required for an electric toothbrush over the active brushing required with a manual toothbrush. Combined with the individual features of each product, it’s easy to see why some prefer an electric toothbrush.
