The Benefits of Switching to a Dentist-Recommended Electric Toothbrush(Published in Farmington, Hartford County)

Most people assume that, after decades of brushing multiple times a day, their tooth brushing technique is without reproach. And yet many people unintentionally brush their teeth in a manner that actually causes dental harm.

Whether it is not brushing thoroughly enough to remove plaque or brushing in a way that causes abrasion to the gum line, many dental patients are advised to correct their brushing technique by using an electric toothbrush. According to the cosmetic dentists of Farmington Valley Dental, some of the benefits of switching to an electric toothbrush include:

  • Brushing too hard can cause gum inflammation and recession of the gum line. Many electric toothbrushes come with pressure sensors that alert a person if they are brushing too hard, helping patients to correct the way they brush over time.
  • Even those who brush well are not always able to get rid of all of the plaque build-up. The sonic technology of an electric toothbrush targets areas of the mouth that are not accessible by a normal toothbrush. Additionally, the power of an electric toothbrush can also fight the staining quality of tea, coffee, and wine, when paired with a whitening toothpaste.
  • Older patients with arthritis often experience pain while performing daily manual tasks such as brushing their teeth. An electric toothbrush takes strain off of the hand, as the vibrating brush head does the majority of the work.

The cosmetic dentists of Farmington Valley Dental are happy to provide a line of dentist-recommended electric toothbrushes to patients who struggle to master their brushing procedure, as well as people who simply wish for a deeper clean.
