Your toothbrush plays a major role in the overall health of your mouth. If you use the wrong type of brush or use a brush far past the time when you should have thrown it away, you’re not cleaning your teeth as effectively as possible.

While they’re a bit more expensive, let’s look at why Dr. Nadia Hamouda recommends you invest in a nice, electric-powered toothbrush.

Cleans in circular motions

The best way to clean your teeth and get rid of the plaque that builds on them is to brush in circular motions. However, with a “regular” toothbrush, this isn’t always easy. An electric toothbrush moves in circles for you, so all you have to do is ensure that you get the brush on all of your teeth and they’ll be cleaned just like they are when our team here at White Pearl Dentistry does a cleaning for you.

Reaches parts of your mouth other brushes can’t

Electric brushes with small, round heads can reach and clean parts of your mouth that other brushes either can’t, or have a hard time doing. The smaller head and softer bristles do a wonderful job of removing plaque and other debris, making your mouth that much healthier.

It does pay in the long-term to invest in a nice toothbrush. Your oral health will thank you immensely, even if you have to set aside money for a few weeks before you have enough to buy the brush you want.
