I hear so much about electric toothbrushes and how good they are at maintaining a higher quality of oral health. So what do the best electric toothbrushes by consumer reports say about them. One thing I have didcovered is that everyone should use one if they are serious about their oral health care.
What is an Electric Toothbrush?
The technical stuff may be important to you, so here it is as described in Wikipedia. “An electric toothbrush is a toothbrush that makes rapid automatic bristle motions, either back-and-forth oscillation or rotation-oscillation (where the brush head alternates clockwise and counterclockwise rotation), in order to clean teeth. Motions at sonic speeds or below are made by a motor. In the case of ultrasonictoothbrushes, ultrasonic motions are produced by a piezoelectric crystal. A modern electric toothbrush is usually powered by a rechargeable battery charged through inductive charging when the brush sits in the charging base between uses.
Electric toothbrushes can be classified according to the frequency (speed) of their movements as power, sonic or ultrasonic toothbrushes, depending on whether they make movements that are below, in or above the audible range (20–20,000 Hz or 2400–2,400,000 movements per minute), respectively.” (Wikipedia)
Electric toothbrushes considered better
Electric toothbrushes take away the guess work out of properly brushing your teeth and make it easy and simple for everyone to brush correctly. There have been many tests and studies conducted by manufacturers, researchers and experts in the field and they have concluded that as part of a daily oral health care ragime an electric toothbrush will:
1. Provide a better clean
2. Be gentler on the gums
3. Reduce plaque
4. Reduce gingivitis
5. Be easier to use for children and individuals with dexterity concerns
The main brands
There are many brands of electric toothbrushes, they are all different in some way, some pulsate while others vibrate. There are brands that have all the features you can think of, while others only have just the basics. The environment will thank you for using one as this will help reduce plastic wastage.
Some of the more popular brands are Philips, Oral B, Colgate, Panasonic, Wagner, Blu
What do consumers who have purchased and are using an electric toothbrush, people just like you and me, report when using an electric toothbrush. Here is what reviewers from 4 to 5 star reviews report from many best seller brands.
“After using it for about a week I’ve definitely noticed a great improvement in my teeth”
“Gentle on the teeth and works quietly and efficiently”
“Easy to use and very powerful”
“Very happy with the quality”
“Great product for the money spent”
” My teeth feel cleaner than any other brush I’ve had”
“Cleans teeth really well. Would definitely recommend it”
Who’s the best
This I can not answer for you, its something you have to try out for yourself. You can ask these questions below to start with and seek recommendations from friends and family. One thing I can suggest is we should all be using an electric toothbrush.
1. Do they have a timer and sensors in-built?
2. Do I want Oscillating or Rotating ?
3. Do they come with replaceable brush heads?
4. What are the brush speeds per minute of the product?
5. Does it have various strength settings?
6. Can you have a rechargeable or battery powered unit?
Value, money, quality
You do get what you pay for and the price, quality and value reflect this throughout the diferent brands. My advice here is purchase an electric toothbrush you are comfortable with.
The small price of an electric toothbrush now outweighs the cost you may have if major dental work is required. The electric toothbrush will be with you for many years to come, remember you are investing in the future of your oral health care and this is something that could save you thousands. Choose well.
