3 tips when buying an electric toothbrush

There are 2 main types: sonic and oscillating toothbrushes. Sonic brushes vibrate at high frequency, while oscillating ones move in a circular or semi-circular motion.

Oscillating brushes are easier to use because the brush head moves around more, so you don't have to move your hand as much. And the smaller brush head can help you clean those tight spaces in your mouth.

Sonic brushes are likely to get into the hard-to-reach spaces between teeth by agitating saliva and toothpaste with high frequency vibrations.

When it comes to choosing the right technology, there's no one-size-fits-all answer. It really depends on what you personally prefer. One thing we do know for sure is that electric toothbrushes are much better at cleaning teeth than their manual counterparts.

Electric toothbrushes can be a bit pricier, especially if you factor in the cost of replacement brush heads.

Some electric toothbrushes offer the option of using compatible brush heads from other brands, which can often be more affordable than the original ones.

Electric toothbrushes can vary greatly in price, with the simplest models being quite affordable and the pricier ones running into the hundreds of pounds.

The main difference between the expensive and affordable brushes is the number of extra features they offer, such as timers, different brushing programmes, AI and 3D technology, as well as app support.

Whether or not you need these extra features depends on your needs. The more expensive brushes often have a higher number of vibrations or oscillations. But the brushing experience is generally comparable to that of the affordable models.

Using an electric toothbrush might seem like a no-brainer, but it's important to use it correctly to maintain a bright, healthy smile. This guide will walk you through the proper technique for using an electric toothbrush.

FAQ

It’s recommended that electric toothbrushes should be held still against teeth and gums. No horizontal or circular movements should occur, as the brush is doing its job best without any help. You should also not press the brush too hard against your teeth and gums.

Most electric toothbrushes come with at least one extra brush head, and recommendations say to replace these roughly every third month. If you need new brush heads, they’re available at pharmacies, electronic stores, and even at well-stocked grocery stores.

An electric toothbrush can last for years - if you take good care of it. The engine and battery will, of course, wear out eventually, but you can expect the toothbrush to last for at least a couple of years. One of the most common issues is that the toothbrush’s battery stops charging. Another factor that can shorten the life of a toothbrush is the brush head’s bracket and actual brush. Make sure to take good care of your toothbrush, and it should last for several years.
