Why You Need to Start Using a Sonic Toothbrush

If you haven’t heard traditional toothbrushes have started to hit the wayside as scientists continue to revolutionize the dental industry. What is a sonic toothbrush you may ask? Instead of oscillating and rotating, the Sonic toothbrushes vibrate at a rate of 31,000 strokes per minute. Sonic technology allows a dynamic clean action that drives fluid between teeth and along the gum line. The sonic toothbrush creates air bubbles that disrupt the plaque biofilm that causes gum disease. It also massages the gums to promote blood circulation. It has also been proven to remove staining and reduce the risk of enamel abrasion and gum recession. The smaller brush heads make it easier to access difficult-to-reach areas, whilst its contour extends into the gaps in between the teeth.

The Sonic toothbrush has completely changed the brushing game and offers over 25% more plaque removal than a manual toothbrush. This blog is to show you the 8 reasons why you need to make the investment for a better toothbrush. 

Reasons to switch:

If you’re currently using a manual toothbrush here are 8 reasons why you need to make the switch today:

1. You get an overall better clean. 

When brushing your teeth manually, you’ll average about 300 strokes each minute. Electric toothbrushes, on the other hand, can average thousands or even tens of thousands of strokes each minute. This means that after brushing with an electric toothbrush your teeth will be much cleaner and you’ll have a brighter smile!

2. Ideal for people with dexterity problems

 If you’re dealing with arthritis, limited mobility, ALS, or involuntary tremors problems, especially with your hands, a sonic toothbrush will make brushing a much easier process. Not only do they have larger handles that are easier to grip, but the power-driven toothbrush heads don’t require nearly as much effort as manual brushes.

3. Rotating heads. 

Sonic toothbrushes can remove more plaque and tartar from your teeth, gums, and tongue. With speeds up to 30,000 brush strokes each minute a sonic toothbrush far outdoes the manual. The rotating heads move in opposite directions, giving you healthier teeth that feel and look cleaner.

4. Promote healthier brushing habits. 

Most sonic toothbrushes have built-in pressure sensors telling you when you are brushing too hard. These features help you prevent yourself from brushing too hard so you don’t injure your inner cheeks or cause gum recession. If you continue brushing aggressively, you could damage your teeth enough to need implants.

5. Different brushing modes. 

Many sonic toothbrushes are designed specifically for sensitive teeth, gum massaging action, and teeth whitening. The versatility of these brushes allows you to customize the settings according to your preferences. This is perfect for those who need that extra comfort.

6. Clean hard-to-reach areas. 

Certain electric toothbrush models have special attachments designed to clean around braces. Even if you don’t have braces though, they’ll help you reach and clean areas where manual toothbrushes just really can’t go.

7. Most have a timer 

No more do you need to worry if you are getting your 2 minutes of brushing in. Toothbrushes like Quip and Oral B have built-in timers that give you a sense of when it is time to switch sections and be done with your brushing. 

8. Affordability 

Sonic toothbrushes are becoming more and more affordable with many ranging from $25-$100. Also, the advanced cleaning of a sonic toothbrush could help you avoid those costly fixes at the dentist.
