Many well-known manufacturers of technology offer, including a large assortment of electric toothbrushes, which are gaining more and more fans. The electric brush is multifunctional, it takes care of both teeth and gums. But in order to use such a brush, you need to know a number of features.
Electric toothbrushes are produced in different models - for children and for adults. Electric brushes are more effective at removing plaque and caring for and massaging your gums. Toothbrushes with the technology of a three-dimensional cleaning effect, in addition to reciprocating movements, also perform pulsating ones, softening and removing plaque in hard-to-reach places and along the gum line.
Regardless of the type of brush you choose, brush your teeth twice a day, observing the following rules:
- the front teeth are brushed up and down
- the upper surface of the distant teeth is brushed forward and backward, keeping the bristles perpendicular to the teeth
- the lateral inner and outer surfaces of the teeth are cleaned at an angle
- in a circular motion with your mouth closed, massage the gums
Using an electric toothbrush, slowly move the cleaning head from one tooth to the next, holding the brush for a few seconds on the surface of each tooth. Start brushing from the outside of the jaw, then brush the inside of the teeth, and then move on to the chewing teeth.
Also clean the gums from both sides - from the outside and from the inside. You should not press too hard on the brush or specifically rub your teeth with the brush, the brush itself will perform all the necessary actions.
Electric toothbrushes have an elaborate design, a special cut of the bristles, the angle of rotation of the cleaning head, different heights of the bristles and other features. All this ensures the most correct and thorough cleaning of the teeth, the user only needs to direct the brush in the right direction so that not a single tooth is left without hygienic care.
Some electric brushes have a pressure control function that allows you to control the pressure of the brush on the surface of your teeth. Some brushes are also equipped with a timer signaling that the procedure is completed after a certain time (experts advise to brush your teeth for at least 2 minutes). Electric toothbrush heads should be replaced every 3 months.
