Should You Invest in an Electric Toothbrush?

Keeping your teeth healthy and clean between doctor visits is generally as simple as purchasing a toothbrush, a pack of dental floss, a fluoride mouth rinse, and a tube of toothpaste. Generally speaking, you should be able to toss all of these items into your cart for less than $20. But is a sonic toothbrush or electric toothbrush better?

Types of Electric Toothbrushes

Powered toothbrushes come in a variety of head types.

What Toothbrush is Right for You?

The single most important thing about dental health isn’t really what toothbrush you use, but that you use it. Any toothbrush will help remove plaque and keep your gums healthy as long as you brush and floss twice a day between dental visits. However, an electric toothbrush, if it’s convenient for your lifestyle, can be more effective than a manual one.

At Creating Smiles, we recommend and offer Sonicare to our patients. The unit we carry here at our St. Pete dentist office comes with two brush heads, a UV sterilizer, and a great two-year warrantee. Ask about our $20 rebate. It makes the Sonicare a cheaper than prices you’ll find online. Happy brushing!
