Teeth are very important for the overall health of a person and this fact can never be overemphasized. This is the reason that all the people try to find the best way possible to keep their teeth intact for long. The best method of doing so is by brushing your teeth two times a day. There are several brands of toothbrushes available in the market to choose from such as
• Those designed for sensitive teeth
• Those designed for people undergoing treatment of specific type such as braces or dentures
• Electric toothbrush
The electric toothbrush is a device that works on electricity. But just buying any toothbrush will not solve the purpose and will not provide you the required oral hygiene.
Why should you replace the head?
The best electrictoothbrush should have that extra power to give you enhanced cleaning and since they can be recharged you need not buy batteries to replace the dead ones. However, you will need to replace the toothbrush head as and when it gets frayed or after a certain period of time. The frayed bristles of a toothbrush are not recommended to be used on your teeth because they damage the tooth surface as well as the gums that provide support to your teeth.
Qualities to look for
You should buy the kids electric toothbrush that has small head that can reach the most inaccessible areas of your mouth and that provides various types of movements like rotation, oscillation as well as sonic vibrations. These movements can help you get rid of plaque and debris from the surface of your teeth efficiently. You could even select the ones that come with sensors to tell you whether or not you are using optimal pressure on your teeth and brush while brushing your teeth. Greater pressure will erode the surface of your teeth.
