Electric Brush versus Manual Brushes

There have been multiple studies comparing the effectiveness of manual brushes as opposed to electric brushes.

Although not all electric brushes are the same, these studies conclude that in general electric brushes are more efficient in controlling plaque than manual brushes. Theoretically, you can do a very good brushing with a regular hand brush, but the movements of an electric brush make the task easier and more effective.

Also, some electric brushes (Sonicare) produce sonic vibrations that are difficult to mimic with a hand brush! Other electric brushes like Oral-B and Rotadent have small heads that help you access hard-to-reach areas of your mouth. This aspect is more important when you are talking about someone with orthodontic braces or a history of gum disease.

How to Floss

How to Floss Your Teeth

The surfaces that are between teeth are not accessible to brush; therefore,
the best way to clean them is by flossing. The frequency of flossing is like
brushing and ideally after each meal, though one time a day (before going to
bed) is the minimum necessary.

flossing [city]dental floss [city]

To start, cut a piece of dental floss (approximately 2 feet). Wrap both sides
of the floss around your middle fingers. Using your index and thumb, glide the
floss in between all your teeth one by one. When flossing, make sure you are not
cutting your gums. The goal is to clean the teeth surfaces, not the gums. In the
space in between teeth, press the floss against each side of the tooth (hug the
tooth) and gently move it back and forth and up and down. Then move to the
opposite surface of the adjacent tooth.
