Why You Should Use A Mechanical Toothbrush

Used properly, mechanical toothbrushes outperform manual toothbrushes because they can

  • Make brushing your teeth fun
  • Provide more scrubbing action
  • Remove more plaque
  • Reduce gingivitis
  • Massage and stimulate blood flow to your gums
  • Remove surface stains
  • Whiten your teeth
  • Remove food particles from hard-to-reach places, especially for those with braces and other dental appliances

Three exceptions

  • Baby’s first teeth should be gently brushed with a soft-bristled, manual brush
  • A manual toothbrush is easier to carry when traveling
  • During a prolonged power outage, a manual toothbrush is better than not brushing
