Is an electric toothbrush better than a manual toothbrush?

dentist | cosmetic dentistry | new orleansChoose the Right Toothbrush!

Most dental patients can clean just as well with a manual as they can with and electric. It's really a matter of how often you can clean your teeth, if any dexterity issues exist and personal preference. If you're a patient that typically brushes 2x day at least (along with other proper oral health practices), then an extra soft/soft manual toothbrush should do the trick. If any dexterity issues exist, if you feel like your teeth don't feel clean after brushing or if your dental professional in New Orleans suggests an electric for any reason...then an electric toothbrush may work better for you. Ask your dental hygienist what's best for you!
