Good Vibrations -- Why Your Manual Toothbrush Can't Shake It
Posted Sep 25 2010 5:18pm
Unless you’ve been under a rock, you’ve most likely heard of the popular electronic toothbrush brand, Sonicare. But you may ask what is the difference between brushing with a Sonicare electric toothbrush and brushing with my old manual toothbrush? Are Sonicare toothbrushes really easier, and more efficient than manual toothbrushes in maintaining healthy teeth? And why do dentists recommend Sonicare so often?
How does Sonicare work?
Sonicare uses patented sonic technology to allow its bristles to move at a higher velocity than any other electric toothbrush. This, combined with sonic waves also used in Sonicare toothbrushes, allows for maximum cleaning power. The Sonicare toothbrushes also have a head that is proven through clinical trials to give better results than manual toothbrushes. The angle of the bristles on the head and the motion of the brushes whips toothpaste into a foam, maximize cleaning of teeth. Also it gently massages the gums for a healthier mouth overall.
Why Sonicare Instead of a Manual Toothbrush?
A Sonicare toothbrush has been shown to clean teeth better than a manual toothbrush because it gets bacteria and plaque in hard-to-reach places such as around the gum line, which are areas known to cause problems. Studies say that the Sonicare toothbrush removes nearly double the amount of plaque in between teeth than a manual toothbrush. Studies also show that Sonicare toothbrushes can remove up to 80% of stains on teeth. Many people brush too hard, in the wrong motion or not frequently enough, but Sonicare technology corrects these errors. All Sonicare toothbrushes are designed to have the up and down motion, this gives you the correct brushing motion every time you brush with no guesswork. And Sonicare has a built in timing feature, which allows everyone to brush the correct amount at each session.
Why is Sonicare So Often Recommended by Dentists?
Sonicare is recommended because it is proven to work. Sonicare has revolutionized home dental care and studies show that the Sonicare toothbrush is highly effective in improving oral health. So naturally dentists recommend it order to help people maintain a healthier smile!
