Don’t Labour at Tooth Brushing

The last long weekend of summer is done, kids are heading back to school and it seems like there are a million things to get done. Brushing your teeth is one daily task that you can make easier. Have you been thinking about switching to an electric toothbrush? Here are the top 5 reasons to electify your dental hygiene routine:

1. It’s easier to brush for longer. Some electric toothbrushes have timers included that even tell you when to switch quandrants of your mouth.

2. Your teeth will be brushed more evenly. Manual toothbrushing will use different pressure in certain areas depending on whether you’re right or left hande

3. Your breath will be fresher! Brushing your tongue with toothpaste, combined with the very thorough job of an electric toothbrush zaps away bad breath!

4. You will use the correct pressure to brush. An electric toothbrush is designed to work at the optimum pressure to properly brush your teeth. No need to push hard, just let the brush do the work for you!

5. Faster stain removal. Our teeth can become stained with coffee, tobacco, or even healthy things like juiced fruits and vegetables. Minor staining can quickly be avoided and removed. Be sure to book an appointment with your hygienist for any stains that can’t be easily removed at home.
