Although the function of every toothbrush is basically the same, the type of toothbrush you use matters depending on the experience and results you want. The right toothbrush can help you better clean your smile and enjoy brushing your teeth. We are pleased to provide professional recommendations on types of toothbrushes to help you make the right choice for your dental health.

Here is what you should know if you are debating between purchasing a manual or electric toothbrush:

Manual Toothbrushes
These are the most common type of toothbrush because they have been around for years and years and are inexpensive. Some of the advantages of manual toothbrushes are their low cost, the lack of batteries involved, and the simplicity of purchasing a new toothbrush every three or so months. However, the downside of manual toothbrushes is that they can provide the same quality cleaning as electric toothbrushes.

Electric Toothbrushes
Your electric toothbrush will use the same cleaning method as the tools we use to polish your teeth at the dental office. The head of the brush rotates in a circular motion to thoroughly and evenly clean areas of the teeth and gums that manual toothbrushes can’t. If you want the best possible dental health, an electric toothbrush may be the ideal choice.
