Here's What You Should Consider Before Making A Switch To An Electric Brush

It has become more important than ever to take utmost care of one's oral health. A manual toothbrush and thread flosser are unable to clean every corner of the mouth. Even after brushing, food residues get stuck amid the tiny gaps between the teeth, which if left untreated can lead to plaque and tartar build-up. Thus, it is essential to switch to an electric toothbrush and water flosser for teeth.

An electric toothbrush comes with various features and modes that help in cleaning every hard-to-reach corner of the mouth in an effective and easy-to-use way. It is ideal for people with braces, crowns, dental implants, and more. Moreover, these brushes are suitable for all age groups including kids aged 8 years and above.

However, there are a few things to consider while making the switch to an electric brush. Here are the 5 important points that one must keep in mind before purchasing an advanced oral care solution.

Dental Care Requirement: There are varying types of dental electric brushes that are available in the market today. While making the switch from a manual toothbrush, it is essential to keep your oral health goals and dental requirements into consideration.

For eg: If you're someone with sensitive teeth, then it is ideal to choose an electric brush that offers the sensitive brushing mode. Also, one may choose between battery-operated and rechargeable toothbrush options, depending on their comfort and convenience.

Deciding A Budget: One of the most important steps is to decide on an appropriate budget in the initial stage of making the switch. This will help you to make the right selection without any hassle. However, one can always try to alter their budget if an electric brush fits and aligns with their oral care requirements completely.

Correct Brushing Technique: Unlike manual brushing, smart brushing offers you the comfort and ease with which it is easy to clean every hard-to-reach corner of the mouth. However, it is vital to use the correct technique while brushing, even when it comes to smart brushes. Most of the power brushes come with a 2-minute smart timer, that allows an individual to avoid over or under-brushing the teeth. For best results, it is ideal to brush only for the recommended 2-minutes, twice a day.

Along with this, it is essential to brush gently, since brushing too hard may cause tooth abrasion. This is why Oracura's sonic electric brushes come with soft DuPont bristles, keeping your gums and teeth healthy at all times.

Proper Maintenance: Just like a manual toothbrush, an electric brush requires proper maintenance and care. It is advised by the dental professional to replace the brush heads every 3-4 months. Along with this, make sure to store your products properly, not very close to each other to maintain the utmost level of hygiene. There are several toothbrushes that come with a protective case, which will further ensure the best hygiene of your dental products.

Warranty:  Warranty is an important point to take into consideration before selecting your perfect electric brush. To ensure a higher lifespan of your product and attain high value for money, always opt for a product that offers a higher warranty period. 

ORACURA® offers a 2-year warranty on its sonic plus electric rechargeable toothbrush SB300.

While using an electric brush will offer you a professional-level cleanse, it is essential to pair it up with a water flosser for teeth for absolute hygiene. Make the right switch to commence your advanced oral care journey today!
