Features of Electric Toothbrushes
Electric toothbrushes tend to be either sonic, meaning they vibrate from side to side, or spinning with a rotating back-and-forth action. Some models have a built-in timer that turns off the brush after two minutes. Additionally, they can program a 30 second beep or indicator that alerts you when it's time to move to another area in the mouth. The rechargeable battery can hold a full charge for weeks, which makes them portable for travel, allowing you to maintain your routine. When choosing the best electric toothbrush for you, look for the following:
- Ease of use
- Comfortable handle with conveniently located on/off switch
- Proper brush size and bristle design to accommodate your mouth
Brushing thoroughly twice a day is crucial for good oral health, and you may find an electric toothbrush more comfortable and easier to use than a traditional brush. If you are considering purchasing one, it's best to seek the advice of your dentist or dental hygienist. He or she can recommend the model that best suits your needs and show you how to use the technology. Perhaps the Colgate® 360°® Optic White® Powered Toothbrush is right for you. With its comfortable non-slip handle and dual action head, you can count on this powerful battery powered toothbrush for a beautiful, radiant, white smile!
