The Difference Between a Powered Toothbrush and a Traditional Toothbrush

Posted .

Are you thinking of buying a new toothbrush? According to the American Dental Association, you should change your toothbrush every three to four months. This will reduce bacteria in your mouth and keep your smile cleaner. However, when it comes to finding the right kind of toothbrush, it can be difficult to know how to choose one. That is why our team is here to help you know how to choose a toothbrush best for you.

In order to find a toothbrush that would be best, it’s important to look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance on the product. This is important because it proves that the product has been tested and researched for safety and effectiveness.

There are two kinds of toothbrushes you can choose from; traditional toothbrushes and powered toothbrushes. Traditional toothbrushes are simple tools that have a handle and bristles. You would move this brush with your hand. Powered toothbrushes are powered with a motor that turns and rotates the bristles, brushing your teeth and gums for you. The top where the bristles are will come off of the powered toothbrush, making it easy to switch out the bristles when you need to. No matter what kind of toothbrush you use, both will give you a proper cleaning if you use them correctly.

If you have any questions about choosing the right toothbrush, be sure to talk to your dentist. Your dentist can assist with any oral questions or concerns you have. So, call us today and schedule an appointment so your smile can be a clean and happy smile.
