Are rotary toothbrushes better?
Electric toothbrushes clean teeth and gums much better than a manual toothbrush, according to the findings of a new study. “Electric toothbrushes, especially those with heads that rotate in both directions, or ‘oscillating’ heads, are really effective at removing plaque.
Should you brush your gums with an electric toothbrush?
Used properly, an electric toothbrush should not hurt your gums or enamel but instead promote overall oral health.
How does an electric brush work?
Electric toothbrush bristles vibrate or rotate to help you remove plaque buildup from your teeth and gums. The vibration allows for more micro-movements every time you move your toothbrush across your teeth.
Are expensive toothbrushes worth it?

Better Longevity – Expensive toothbrushes will last you YEARS (often 5+ years). Note: The toothbrush head should be replaced every 3-4 months.
How can I remove tartar from my teeth without going to the dentist?
Start by mixing white vinegar in a glass of warm saltwater. This solution can then be gargled once a day to aide in the removal of tartar that has formed on the region between the teeth and gums. The mixture should be made from two tablespoons of white vinegar into a cup of warm water with dissolved salt.
Do you use toothpaste with ultrasonic toothbrush?
To use a sonic toothbrush, you should follow these instructions: Wet the bristles and use a small bit of toothpaste. Gently brush the head slowly across the teeth in small back and forth motions so the longer bristles reach between your teeth.
Is sonic toothbrush better than electric?
While both the sonic and electric toothbrushes work well in comparison to the manual toothbrush, the sonic toothbrush is undeniably more efficient in cleaning your teeth. Electric toothbrushes typically have bristles that either scrub forward and backward or rotate in a mechanized motion.
Do ultrasonic toothbrushes really work?
Studies looking at the effectiveness of manual brushing versus ultrasonic brushing have shown that electronic/ultrasonic toothbrushes remove more plaque than regular manual toothbrushes. A review of studies showed that by using an electronic toothbrush plaque was decreased by 21 percent just after three months of use.
Is it OK to brush your gums?
It is very important to properly brush your teeth and gums every day to prevent tooth loss and gum disease. Gum disease is caused by the bacteria found in plaque and has three stages: gingivitis, mild to moderate periodontitis, and advanced periodontitis.
Do electric toothbrushes cause gum recession?
The short answer? No, the electric toothbrush does not cause gum recession. It can exaggerate or accelerate recession, but this is as a result of user (human) error rather than the action of the brush.
How hard should you press with an electric toothbrush?
When using a rechargeable electric toothbrush, it isn’t necessary to press hard or scrub. Simply guide the brush while it provides the brushing action. In fact, some electric toothbrushes have pressure sensors that alert you when you’re brushing too hard.
