Electric vs. Traditional Toothbrush

It’s time to choose a new toothbrush. Which type will you purchase – electric or traditional? Your cosmetic dentist at Ocotillo Trails Family Dentistry in Queen Creek has patients who use both successfully. Consider the following benefits of both electric and traditional toothbrushes to determine which type might be right for you.

Benefits of Electric Toothbrushes

Your cosmetic dentist at Ocotillo Trails Family Dentistry in Queen Creek often recommends electric toothbrushes for children, those with motor disabilities, and the elderly. This is because children find them fun and may be more likely to brush with them, while those who have trouble brushing, especially those with arthritis, can benefit from how easy they are to use.

Electric toothbrushes also commonly offer many helpful features, including a smaller head that better reaches tight spaces near the back of the mouth. Plus, some research has indicated that electric toothbrushes may be more effective in removing plaque.

Benefits of Traditional Toothbrushes

Traditional toothbrushes aren’t without their merits, however. Traditional toothbrushes are less expensive, more readily available and easier to travel with. They require no batteries or charging, and many people find them more comfortable to grip since they aren’t as bulky. Traditional toothbrushes also better allow you to adjust the pressure with which you brush your teeth since you brush manually.

Overall, the toothbrush that is right for you will be the one you are most comfortable with and most likely to use. No extra toothbrush features provide any additional benefit when the toothbrush is left in the drawer. How and how often you brush your teeth is far more important than what style of toothbrush you prefer. In other words – it’s up to you!

If you have any questions or concerns about which type of toothbrush is best for you, speak to your Queen Creek cosmetic dentist. Here at Ocotillo Trails Family Dentistry, we’re committed to your oral health, and we’d love to help you in any way we can. Give us a call today!
