March 10, 2006, Newsletter Issue #7: Electric Tooth Brushes

Tip of the Week

In 2003 more people died of shark attacks than of accidentally choking on their own toothbrushes but, although toothbrushes may be less deadly than your average great white, choosing the wrong one can have adverse effects on your dental health.

A brush whose bristles are too soft may not adequately remove the daily plaque buildup on your teeth, while one with very hard bristles may erode your gumline, so unless you are willing to shell out for one of the best dental programs later on, you should choose your brush with care.

The state-of-the-art toothbrushes, and the ones most highly recommended by dentists, are electric brushes with rotating, oscillating heads (heads that only do one of these have been found to be just as effective as manual brushing).

Although a good electric tooth brush can be expensive, they can also save you a lot of money over time by keeping your teeth healthier and less decayed than ordinary tooth brushes can.
