Hubby and I use an electric toothbrush. So much easy than using a manual toothbrush. What about everyone else?
I use a manual toothbrush. Apparently electric toothbrush is supposedly better for your teeth. Or at least that's what my dentist says =)
I have gum disease and my dentist has advised me to use an electric toothbrush as it is more effective than a manual toothbrush. My teeth certainly feel cleaner when I use the electric toothbrush :)
I've used an Oral B electric toothbrush for years, I prefer it over a manual toothbrush.
I still use a manual toothbrush. Some people l know buy an electric one and use it for a while then revert back to manual. Wouldn't mind trying an electric toothbrush though - to see what the buzz is about ;)
Using an electric toothbrush gives you that smooth 'been to the dentist' clean feel. You just can't get that with a regular toothbrush.
I use manual. I'm 49 with no cavities so I don't see the need to add another appliance to the bathroom.
I have always preferred a manual toothbrush until I finally tried an electric one. It actually does clean better but you need to make sure you don't press too hard. I still use a manual toothbrush once in a while but truly notice the difference.
Electric Toothbrush my hubby and i share (we have different brush heads) the oral B battery died, i still have lots of Oral B brusheads. Using the ultrasonic Waterpik toothbrush now and it is really clean!
I do agree with misfortune8 that it is not a necessity.
We use manual toothbrushes when we travel.
I use an electric toothbrush as I find it gets into more places than a manual toothbrush. My electric toothbrush stopped working and it was a while till I could afford a new one and I definitely noticed the difference.
Hi deadstarcavegrl! Now that's a username!
have anyone tried the ultrasonic ones... they are the best!
For 5 years I've been using the inexpensive Oral B (Braun) Electric Toothbrush that is usually on special for $24.95 (or thereabouts)! It hasn't skipped a beat, even when using generic brush heads.
Personally I love the clean you get with an electric toothbrush. The added bonus is that I've since developed arthritis in my thumbs, so the larger electric toothbrush is a lot easier for me to hold! Plus I like the 2 minute timer! It reminds me to switch to brush my top/bottom row of teeth!
I would also only ever recommend a rechargeable toothbrush! I had a battery operated one years ago, and I absolutely hated it! Besides, the Oral B Precision is cheap enough, and lasts for eons!
Be aware! I bought some el cheapo brush-heads for my Braun electric toothbrush & after a couple of months, I noticed that they didn't 'agitate' properly when pressed lightly against the tooth. I was then worried about any possible damage from not brushing properly.
Now I always buy a bunch of name-brand brush-heads when they are on special.
Co-incidentally, I also have OA in my thumbs.
Anyhoo, since I have been using a leccy brush, I only ever get good reports from my dentist.
I have just had my wisdom teeth out and was told by dentist to buy an electric toothbrush first time using one and I can say my teeth have never felt so clean I brush 2. Times daily and when I used a manual brush it never felt this clean my electric tooth brush also whitens my teeth aswell so I will stay with an electric brush from now on!! Worth the money for sure
Hi to newbies tania007 & Hannahheydon87!
I use manual to start with for the first clean, then my electric one to give my teeth that perfect, no tartare feeling :)
I prefer manual one, because I think the electric one costs too many batteries and that's not good. If you want to whiten teeth I suggest a bleach strips from crazysales. I used those and they worked.
Both toothbrushes work quite well but in general, the electric is better in the sense that it reduces risk of abrasion (since it minimises the risk of people brushing too hard) and there are ones that are timed so you are definitely getting 2 minutes of brushing each time.
On the other hand, manual toothbrushes can work just as well. As long as it's used correctly. If you use manual, be sure to get the soft kind (not medium - it does not clean better as many people may think) and smaller heads are /usually/ more ideal for smaller mouths.
Once you use an electric toothbrush you never go back to cleaning your teeth manually. My Dental Hygienist recommended I use one, as well as an electronic water flosser. I have a Phillips flosser that I fill with non-alcohol mouth wash. it feels so good to have clean teeth and gums and it's kind of addictive.
So true! I love my electric toothbrush!
I alternate between both, if the eletric toothbrush is on charge. I use electric at night for a more effective brush
I use the electric one, but with dedicated toothpaste
I've started using an electric toothbrush a couple of months ago and I'm never looking back! My teeth feel much more clean. I do however make sure I get one with a soft toothbrush head because my teeth are somewhat sensitive.
Electric toothbrushes make my teeth feel so much cleaner!!
Do you miss Summer when your lips are chapped from cold winds and winters blustery conditions?
I swear by this product 100%! While at my cousins house, I left my nappy bag in the car and had to change my son so she offered me her products and nappies to use.
I received this as a present for Christmas and I was excited to try it! I love almond milk and I’d heard many good things about it! I was excited but so was my toddler who got ahold of it.
