Which technology will suit you better?
Electric brushes are created with different technological aspects so you have to make a careful decision about which one you should buy. The rotating brush heads work by spinning all the way whereas the oscillating brushes follow a side to side motion. There are few pulsating type brushes as well; their head keeps on moving in and out against teeth to take away all the plaque.
Some of you may also like to use counter-oscillating toothbrushes; they use to follow the head shape same as that of oscillating brushes but the bristle tufts rotate in various directions at a time. The dual head electric toothbrushes are made up of two heads where one part sweeps side to side and other keeps on rotating.
Few brands also design ultrasonic and sonic toothbrushes that work with high-speed vibration and certain frequency ranges. They are capable enough to break down the tough to reach plaque. Note that, the vibrating brushes are found little expensive as that of rotating brushes.
In a wide range of electric toothbrushes, you will also find a variety of handy features that can help you to clean your mouth more effectively. One essential feature in this list is brushing timer that may help you to know when you should end up brushing your teeth. If you have sensitive gums then you should look for an electric toothbrush with a pressure sensor. This sensor will help you know if you are placing unwanted pressure on your teeth that may otherwise damage your gums.
Some electric brushes are also designed with position detection technology that helps users to know which area of mouth they have covered and which portion still demands attention so that missing zones can be easily covered. Some of you may also prefer to invest in soft grip handles that are much comfortable to hold and use. These models will reduce the vibrations to your hand so that you can hold your toothbrush with better grip. You can also look for a rechargeable toothbrush to enjoy trouble free performance.
Toothbrush with Bluetooth connectivity
Some of the latest electric brushes are also designed with Bluetooth connectivity so that you can connect to your smartphone to get real-time feedback about your brushing habits. These app-based controls will help you to get professional dental care. However, cost of these toothbrushes is usually much higher as compared to the simple electric toothbrushes. It is good to consult your dental health expert before investing in any product.
