LAS VEGAS, NV, March 07, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Every dentist will tell you that your oral health care is important. Good oral health not only keeps you smiling your brightest, it also helps prevent gum disease, which is a risk factor for serious health issues like heart disease. But knowing how to maintain your oral health is sometimes trickier than it seems.
When your dentist recommends that you use an electric toothbrush, how do you know which one is best for you? Start by having a conversation with your dentist about which toothbrushes they recommend. Then follow these guidelines to pick the toothbrush that will best help you care for your teeth and gums and prevent common dental problems
The toothbrush you select should allow you to easily access and clean all surfaces of your teeth. In general a toothbrush head for adults should be a half-inch wide and one-inch tall. Heads should be easily replaceable on your electric toothbrush since you will want to replace the head as often as you would replace a disposable toothbrush.
Studies in general dentistry
suggest that rotation oscillation toothbrushes are more effective at removing plaque and preventing gum disease. The bristles on these brushes spin around and back and forth to provide a more comprehensive cleaning. Ask your dentist for recommendations.
Make sure you select a toothbrush with the American Dental Association
seal of approval. These toothbrushes have been evaluated for safety and effectiveness. You can feel confident that you are getting a quality product that's been approved by the ADA.
Some people are hesitant to purchase electric toothbrushes because heavy vibration is uncomfortable against their teeth. If this concerns you, look for a toothbrush that offers a variety of settings. Some will have a gentle or sensitive mode that reduces the vibration and can give you a gentler cleaning. Your dentist should also be able to recommend a good brand for sensitive teeth.
