Manual or Powered: Which Toothbrush is Right for You?

Some people always use a manual toothbrush, while others swear by their rechargeable or battery-powered devices. Other folks like to alternate between the two. Each version has its advantages. But in the end, your mission is to always clean your teeth efficiently.

At the office of Pomerado Family Dental, our experienced professionals are well equipped to provide you with the highest level of care to preserve and maintain your oral health. If you want to know which type of toothbrush is best for you, we’ll be happy to provide expert advice.

Battery-powered versions cost as little as $20. Rechargeable models cost as much as $200. While you can dispose of the budget-friendly models when their bristles get worn and purchase a whole new one, you’ll have to continuously buy new heads for the rechargeables.

Some people don’t like the vibrations of a powered toothbrush. Other individuals find that powereds make it easier to clean each tooth’s surfaces. This ease of use is important for those with limited hand mobility.

Some folks are better off using one instead of the other. For example, people who use a manual and brush too hard can harm their gums and teeth. When they use a powered toothbrush, however, they tend to get the same cleansing results with less physical force.

Individuals who like their tooth-brushing method are apt to brush for the recommended two minutes. As long as you clean your teeth at least twice a day and employ the proper brushing technique, you can reduce plaque build-up and keep your gums healthy with a toothbrush that’s manual or powered.

The office of Pomerado Family Dental offers a clear picture of all the options available to you and delivers the results you expect. We utilize state-of-the-art knowledge and technology to plan and perform your care with the utmost precision. For more information on all of our services, please call today.
