When you brush your teeth properly, you are less likely to need dental work down the road. It is common to use a manual toothbrush for brushing your teeth. However, you may find it more effective to use an electric toothbrush.

Some people have difficulty with brushing because of medical conditions. Arthritis is one of those conditions that make it hard to brush your teeth. An electric toothbrush does not require much hand movement because it is battery powered. It also can remove twice as much plaque than a regular toothbrush.

When choosing an electric toothbrush, you should choose one with the right features. Features to consider are a rotating-oscillating head, adjustable power levels, timers, and rechargeable batteries. It also helps to get an electric toothbrush that is comfortable and easy to hold.

Read your manufacturer’s instructions about when to replace the head to ensure your toothbrush works effectively. The most important thing is to brush and floss your teeth daily.
