ELEC­TRIC TOOTHBRUSH

Men's Style (Australia) - - Manual -

Fig­ur­ing you’re over the age of 13, you have just this one set of teeth. So take care of them by brush­ing twice daily with an elec­tric brush. Stud­ies show that elec­tric brushes re­duce plaque much bet­ter than man­ual tooth­brushes and also re­duce the signs of gin­givi­tis, thanks to the higher-fre­quency vi­bra­tion that elec­tric brushes pro­vide while still be­ing kin­der to gum tis­sue than reg­u­lar brushes. That said, you get what you pay for: Den­tists warn not to cheap out with knock­off elec­tric mod­els, which pro­vide only a mo­tor­ized back-and-forth me­chan­i­cal mo­tion rather than what you re­ally want, which is a ro­tat­ing-os­cil­lat­ing mo­tion or sonic vi­bra­tion. Make sure to hold it so that the bris­tles touch the teeth and gums at a 45 de­gree an­gle. Do­ing so en­ables you to get the pocket on the edge of the gum tis­sue that’s the most crit­i­cal area to keep clean.
