Making the switch from a manual to an electric toothbrush can change the way you clean your teeth, and it helps to have as much information as you can about this product. Our team at Salina Creek Dental is happy to offer further insight into choosing an electric toothbrush and improving your dental hygiene.

To help you choose an electric toothbrush that meets your needs, we recommend the following toothbrush characteristics:

– Sonic brush stroke: This characteristic can be found in certain electric toothbrushes, moving the brush head at about 18,000 to 40,000 strokes every minute, ensuring your teeth and gums have a very powerful and effective clean.

– Pressure sensor: If you tend to use too much pressure when brushing your teeth, this can be a tooth-saving feature. Harsh tooth brushing causes significant dental damage, including receding gums and worn tooth enamel.

– Timer: The recommended time for brushing teeth is two minutes twice a day, and a timer can help you make sure your teeth are being brushed long enough to avoid poor oral health but not so long that it is too much for your teeth and causes harm.

Please feel free to contact our office at 435-529-1000 today and schedule an appointment with our dentist, Dr. Barry Sorenson, if you have any questions about electric toothbrushes in Salina, Utah.
