Electric Toothbrush VS Manual Toothbrush
By [http://EzineArticles.com/expert/Genie_Fletcher/1334624]Genie Fletcher

Buy this ProductHow do you think an electric toothbrush stands up to its conventional counterpart? We've gathered the thoughts from experts to find out which one is better: the good, old-fashioned or the state-of-the-art.

The electric type is becoming widely used and popular these days. Family dentist and manufacturers say this advanced variety offers superior and exceptional dental cleaning. But how does it really compare to manual toothbrushing?

The goal in using a toothbrush is to get rid of the plaque as well as stimulate the gums, this was explained by John Ictech-Cassis, DDS, DMD. He is a clinical associate professor at the Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine. When asked about his thoughts between the better of the two, he said, "Most toothbrushes will keep the teeth clean if you know how to use them."

Does that mean there really is no substantial difference between an old-fashioned brush and its advanced, electronic equivalent?

Electric Brush

According to Thomas J. Salinas, DDS, an electric brush is a wonderful alternative to manual brushing. However, that is not to say using a conventional toothbrush is not any good. For people with arthritis or struggling with a physical condition that restricts their mobility, using an electric brush is a great idea because with its manual counterpart, cleaning the teeth may be difficult.

With the state-of-the-art variety, these people don't have to exert effort in brushing their teeth. The device's bristle movement is enough to get rid of the plaque from teeth. When choosing the electric type, look for one that's comfortable and easy to use.

Conventional Toothbrush

Manual brushing is the preferred mode for many people. There are a lot of advantages to opting for this. For one, we've been using the conventional type for years. There is familiarity and a good track record to back it up.

Another advantage when you opt for a conventional toothbrush is that is very accessible and inexpensive. You can easily find one at your local grocery store or over-the-counter. In fact, majority of dental health specialists give them away to patients.

Dr. Ictech-Cassis noted that electric toothbrushes may be not be affordable for many. He added that it may be the reason why the conventional medium is still widely used despite the emergence of these state-of-the-art dental cleaning devices. What's more, if you're travelling, conventional toothbrushes are convenient and easy to pack. They are very lightweight and portable, not bulky like the electric ones.

With a manual brush, you can easily feel how much pressure you're putting on your teeth and gums. With the electric type, you can't feel that. This can be particularly useful if you are suffering from gum disease. Too much pressure can damage your gums. Excessive pressure can also wear away the enamel of your teeth, which can cause pain and increase the risk of tooth decay.

Using a manual toothbrush can also be good training for kids. It teaches them on how to safely and efficiently brush the teeth.

For people who aren't good at using the manual medium or do not possess the manual dexterity needed, the electric variety is a wonderful alternative to the old-fashioned ones.
