If you are thinking about purchasing an electric toothbrush and would like further information about this product, our team at Metro 1 Family Dental can help you determine whether this dental hygiene change will be effective for your smile. Before switching to an electric toothbrush, it’s important to consider the features they offer that can benefit your smile.

Here are some electric toothbrush features to look for:

– Sonic brush stroke: Some electric toothbrushes have brush strokes that run at 18,000 to 40,000 turns per minute, providing effective speed that results in a very high-quality clean for your teeth and gums.

– Pressure sensor: The presence of a pressure sensor notifies you if you are using too much force when brushing your teeth so that you can avoid inadvertently harming your smile with harsh tooth brushing. Using too much force can result in worn tooth enamel and badly receding gums.

– Timer: A two-minute timer on your brush can help you ensure you are brushing your teeth for the recommended length of time every day so that you don’t overtax your teeth with too much brushing or develop poor oral health from too little.
