Is an electric toothbrush worth the investment?
Their improved cleaning efficiency, the convenience they provide, and the way they encourage you to brush your teeth at the right time will definitely pay off.
While there is an initial purchase price, this can be offset over time as you can have fewer or cheaper dental bills, not to mention healthier teeth and gums.
Buying at a reasonable price helps ensure a return on investment. Our main recommendation is ProtectiveClean 4100, which is a good example - it includes the "core" features we recommend without piling on unnecessary extras.
Is the electric toothbrush better than the manual toothbrush?
In short, electric toothbrushes are more effective at cleaning teeth than manual toothbrushes.
We will be the first to say that manual toothbrushes are enough for daily cleaning of teeth, but clinical studies and tests have shown that electric toothbrushes are better.
The most important thing is that you brush your teeth in the right way, twice a day, two minutes each time.
Do electric toothbrushes damage teeth?
When used correctly, an electric toothbrush does not damage the teeth or gums.
Does an electric toothbrush cause the gums to shrink?
The toothbrush itself does not cause the gums to shrink.
It may exaggerate or accelerate the decline, but this is the result of a user (human) error, not a brush. This effect is most likely to occur on a manual toothbrush.
Can electric toothbrush whiten teeth?
Electric toothbrushes cannot whiten teeth.
Electric toothbrushes can help prevent and remove stains on your teeth, but no toothbrush can whiten your teeth to natural whites.
Your cleaning habits, eating habits, lifestyle and toothpaste all have an impact on your health.
How long does the electric toothbrush last?
The average life expectancy is 3-5 years.
Manufacturers usually offer a 2-year warranty if the brush fails faster.
Many toothbrushes last longer and we know that many people still use toothbrushes for 10 years.
Can you share an electric toothbrush with others?
The hair of the brush head may contain bacteria, and if you share it with others, these bacteria will have a negative impact on your health.
The interchangeable brush head of the electric toothbrush makes it easier and possible to share the handle.
In fact, we advocate sharing a toothbrush handle (rather than a brush head) as this is a good way to reduce the cost of ownership of the toothbrush and get extra value from the toothbrush.
Will the electric toothbrush be wet?
With a few exceptions, electric toothbrushes are designed such that they can be washed under a faucet, wiped with a rag, and exposed to water.
Fragile electronic equipment is sealed inside the handle and measures are taken to prevent water from entering.
For example, different manufacturers have different advice and guidance on the use of showers. Do not immerse the brush in water at any time.
