Do you know which electric toothbrush to choose?
There are 2 basic types of electric toothbrushes depending on how the toothbrush bristles rotate.
- Side to Side
- Oscillating (moves in a circular pattern)
Well, the American Dental Association recently published an extensive study of these 2 types. Which one was best?
Neither! They both were equally as effective in removing plague thereby improving gum and tooth health (Look Ma, no cavities!)
So, if you are in the market for an electric toothbrush, either of these types will do a great job. Just remember to brush 2 times a day for 2 minutes each time. Focus on brushing the area where the teeth and gums meet. Floss once per day.
