Newport Beach Dentist Reviews Toothbrush Options to Avoid Cavities

Electric, rechargeable battery toothbrushes are the most expensive, but include more special features. Most of these brushes have built-in countdown timers to alert you when you have brushed long enough. Some even have small LCD screens to show how many seconds and minutes have passed, as well as display additional information, such as remaining battery life. A few models of electric brushes have pressure sensors that detect and alert when you are pushing too hard on your teeth. Electric toothbrush heads must also be replaced occasionally. Many brands also sell separate sanitizers to keep your brush heads clean after each use.

Keep in mind that some lower-end electric and battery-powered toothbrushes may have leaky battery compartments. If a water leak occurs, it is recommended that you refrain from using the toothbrush for risk of electric shock.

Newport Beach Dentist Reviews Toothbrush Options

Toothbrushes are key instruments in maintaining good oral hygiene. As such, they have been developed into a broad variety of types. Traditional manual brushes are the simplest in design and rarely sell for more $4. These brushes are very basic and amount to little more than bristles at the end of a plastic stick. The higher end manual brushes tend to feature flexible necks, extra bristles, and a tongue scraper on the back of the brush head.

Battery-powered brushes offer motorized bristle motion for additional cleaning support when brushing. These brushes are typically a few dollars more expensive than manual brushes. Battery-powered brushes can help dislodge trapped plaque in the teeth with the use of spinning or shaking bristles. The heads of the brushes are often removable and should be replaced about once every three months.

Please let us know if you have any questions about the Toothbrush you should use, you can call us (949)760-0363.
