The type of toothbrush you use can either make your brushing experience a breeze or turn it into a chore.
When looking for your ideal toothbrush, you may be wondering if you should go electric or keep the good ol’ regular brush.
Electric Toothbrushes have many benefits:
- It removes plaque more effectively
- It does most of the work for you
- It’s easy to use for people with limited mobility or dental appliances like braces
But electric toothbrushes are more expensive and not as accessible as the regular toothbrush. For example, you may not find your preferred type of electric toothbrush at your nearest grocery store.
Normal toothbrushes also take up less space when packing for travel and they can be much cheaper.
The manual toothbrush may require more effort to use, but it can be just as effective as its electric counterpart when used properly.
There is no right or wrong answer. The type of toothbrush you pick will depend on your personal preferences.
Even though it’s a 2-minute activity done twice daily, you deserve to have an enjoyable experience. So, consider what factors matter most to you before picking your next toothbrush.
