Maintain Your Smile With Electric Toothbrushes
Plaque is the film that accumulates on our teeth daily and the reason we brush our teeth daily. Any plaque which is missed during brushing in a 48 hr period of time hardens on our teeth forming calculus which cannot be removed by brushing and requires removal by a dentist or hygienist. This calcified plaque contains bacteria which are living organisms. Just as we metabolize sugars and excrete uric acid as an end product of our metabolism ; so do bacteria metabolize sugars and excrete acids.These acids are responsible for all dental disease ;bone loss around your teeth ,bleeding gums, and tooth decay. Electric toothbrushes are more effective at removing plaque and preventing issues than regular toothbrushes.
We recommend two brands of electric toothbrushes that will help you keep your teeth clean and white, Sonicare and Rotadent.
Sonicare is significantly more effective than a manual toothbrush and is clinically proven to significantly reduce coffee, tea, and tobacco stains in just 28 days. It even helps to reverse gingivitis and shrink periodontal pockets Sonicare is personally used by more U.S. dental professionals than any other power toothbrush. Sonicare has patented sonic technology and its bristle tips move 3 times faster than other leading power toothbrushes to create dynamic cleaning action. This powerful cleaning action gently and effectively reaches deep between teeth and below the gumline. Imagine starting every day with that just-left-the-dentist feeling. Sonicare is the perfect balance of power and gentleness, especially for people who have gum disease, tooth sensitivity, crowns, veneers, dental implants, braces, and other cosmetic procedures.
Rotadent has been clinically proven to reduce plaque and thereby minimize both calculus build up and gingivitis or gum disease. It’s designed to provide simple, effective, and consistent access to even the hardest-to-reach places, including around orthodontics, appliances, and restorations. It works without scrubbing, special toothpastes, or fancy techniques and in fact, Rotadent requires less pressure than other powered toothbrushes. The rotary action brush tips clean effectively with just a touch to the tooth surface. All you have to do is hold the brush tip so that it meets the gumline and tooth surface at a 90-degree angle, move it slowly across all tooth surfaces, and then rinse thoroughly. Some patients notice a slight tingling sensation or even mild bleeding which is due to stimulation of previously uncleaned or slightly diseased tissues. The bleeding will pass with consistent use as the gums eventually. Rotadent comes with several different brush head designs to accommodate various dentitions, orthodontics, and gum conditions.
