The Best Electric Toothbrush To Remove Plaque

When you are buying a new toothbrush to keep your smile bright, you have many choices. You may wish to purchase a manual toothbrush or you may want an electric toothbrush. The main advantage of a manual toothbrush is that it is very low in cost when compared to the cost of an electric toothbrush. However, an electric toothbrush can be much more effective at removing bits of food that have become stuck between your teeth. An electric toothbrush is also more effective at removing plaque that builds up on teeth between brushings. This plaque is very destructive because it harbors millions of bacteria. For many people, an electric toothbrush is a wiser choice than a manual toothbrush to maintain the health of teeth and gums. If you make the decision to purchase an electric toothbrush, you must do some research to decide which is the best electric toothbrush.

One type of electric toothbrush that is very helpful to prevent and reverse gingivitis is the sonic toothbrush. The head of a sonic toothbrush can vibrate at more than 30,000 strokes per minute. The sonic toothbrush vibrates much more rapidly than a regular electric toothbrush. A sonic toothbrush can help to break up plaque and remove it even in areas below the gum line.

If you suffer from gingivitis, your dentist may tell you that the sonic toothbrush is the best electric toothbrush for you. Your dentist will also tell you that if you wish to keep your gingivitis under control, you will need to floss your teeth daily. This may be difficult to do if you have teeth that are very tightly spaced. The best dental floss for tight teeth will be very fine and it will have a wax coating. This wax coating will enable the floss to slip between the teeth more easily.
