What is the best toothbrush – Manual or Electric?

The key to maintaining healthy teeth and gums lies in the way we use our tooth brush. Correct brushing technique is best achieved with an electric tooth brush due to its ability to provide a perfect balance between efficient cleaning and brushing pressure. Adequate pressure is applied so plaque is removed and excess pressure is avoided which can cause damage to the teeth and gums.

An electric toothbrush with a built-in pressure sensor is therefore recommended, as is a timer to ensure you are brushing for at least 2 minutes. For optimal results, we would recommend using an Oral B electric toothbrush with a soft ‘sensitive clean’ brush head.
