Are Electric Toothbrushes Worth The Investment?

You may love the old fashioned traditional toothbrush. We love those toothbrushes too, but as time rolls on and technology advances, you may have a change of heart when it comes to your old fashioned toothbrush. You may think that all the features just means that eventually it may become unreliable or may just be too fancy for your liking. However, that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

We are going to explain to you all the advances that an electric toothbrush can give you, while it may never be cheaper than using a manual toothbrush, but we think the advantages will outweigh that the initial expense of an electric toothbrush costing more than a manual toothbrush. Here are the advantages that an electric toothbrush can offer you.


  • Superior Cleaning
    • An electric toothbrush will vibrate and rotate for you. Each tooth will be cleaned and brushed the same way as the next tooth, and the best part is, all you have to do is hold it in place and let it do all the work.
  • Safer
    • Most of us are guilty of brushing too hard or even flossing too aggressively, which can cause damage to your gums and tooth enamel. Good news is that electric toothbrushes come with built-in pressure sensors that will alert you if you are brushing too hard.
  • Timing
    • Another fact that just about everyone has been guilty of at least once is not brushing your teeth for enough time. Another great feature about the electric toothbrush is that most of them come equipped with a built-in timer to ensure that you brush your teeth for enough time.
