The Benefits of Power Brushes over Manual Toothbrushes

Both electric and manual toothbrushes can effectively remove plaque and prevent gum disease if used with a proper technique. An electric toothbrush allows you to brush your teeth with minimal effort whereas a manual toothbrush is more technique sensitive and requires more effort. As a result, power toothbrushes, whether they be high-end units or low end, provide anywhere from 25 to 49% greater plaque removal than manual brushes in single-use trials.
Extensive research has demonstrated that power toothbrushes have many advantages over manual toothbrushes for specific populations, including orthodontic patients, persons with impaired dexterity, children and adolescents, patients with hard to access areas such as dental implants, and periodontal patients with low home-care compliance. For example, patients with fixed orthodontic brackets who face the challenge of effective plaque control have been shown in at least eight clinical trials to reap superior plaque removal benefits with a power toothbrush over manual. Gingivitis and/or pocket depth improvement were also demonstrated.

Less Force Needed with Electric Toothbrushes - One advantage of power toothbrushes is that significantly less force is needed to effectively remove plaque than is required for manual toothbrushes. Evidence suggests that the forces used with power toothbrushes are in the 80 to190 g/f range, compared to forces in excess of 250 g/f with manual brushes.
Prevent Gum Recession - brushing too vigorously with either a manual or electric tooth can cause gingival recession. No pressure is required when using an electric toothbrush, but when an electric brush is used vigorously like a manual brush, recession can be accelerated. Some electric toothbrushes will even alert you when you are applying too much pressure to minimize damage.

With the electric brush, you will just place the brush head on 1-2 teeth at a time and hold it there for 5 seconds and let the brush do what it does, then move on to the next 1-2 teeth as you progress around each arch touching all exposed surfaces of each tooth.

Better Stain Removal - Power toothbrushes have also been shown to deliver better stain removal and tooth whitening than manual brushes.

Equal pressure is important—far too many manual brushers do a good job on one side of their mouth (a right handed person often brushes the left side of their mouth more thoroughly) but struggle to keep the other side of their mouth as clean. An electric brush will brush both sides with equal pressure

August usually gets fully booked quickly because of students trying to get in before their insurance expires. This time, we are giving an earlier reminder to all those that have outstanding dental work to schedule their appointments.
