Why you Need an Electric Toothbrush

They’re more expensive than a normal toothbrush, but electric toothbrushes are the best investment you can make for your at-home oral health. They clean in a very similar fashion to the brushes our team here at Virginia Dental Group in Fairfax, Virginia uses, and since they last longer than a normal brush, it’s almost more cost-effective to buy an electric brush than to keep buying new “normal” ones.

Cleans in circular motions

The best way to clean your teeth and get rid of the plaque that builds on them is to brush in circular motions. However, with a “regular” toothbrush, this isn’t always easy. An electric toothbrush moves in circles for you, so all you have to do is ensure that you get the brush on all of your teeth and they’ll be cleaned just like they are when our team here at Virginia Dental Group does a cleaning for you.

Reaches parts of your mouth other brushes can’t

Electric brushes with small, round heads can reach and clean parts of your mouth that other brushes either can’t, or have a hard time doing. The smaller head and softer bristles do a wonderful job of removing plaque and other debris, making your mouth that much healthier.
