A recent study shows that the use of certain power toothbrushes each day could keep the dental hygienist at bay!

According to a new report people who are concerned about the most effective method of home dental brushing should use an electrical toothbrush. A power toothbrush with rotational and oscillation action produce better dental results than a typical manual brushing. The findings come from the oral health wing of the Cochrane Collaboration, an international nonprofit organization that complies and reviews data from healthcare studies.

Rotational oscillation toothbrushes remove up to 11% more plaque and reduce bleeding of the gums by up to 17% more than manual toothbrushes, according to the Cochrane Oral Health Group. Reducing bacterial plaque that cause disease is of extreme importance. In addition, dentists are hoping the results with electric toothbrushes will also have an affect on reducing cavities and periodontal gum disease as the study continues over the next 3-5 years.

As a dentist, I professionally encourage my patients to use the Oral B Professional Care Electric Toothbrush. They are sold in my office for $90.00. I have seen tremendous improvement in many of my patients who use them and adhere to a regular dental daily routine. Please not that this price is my cost and is sold at no profit, as a courtesy to my patients.

A person using the simplest manual toothbrush with good knowledge of how to brush can do just as well as someone using a power one. If you brush incorrectly, it doesn’t matter what kind of toothbrush you use. Hints to properly brushing your teeth whether it be manual or electric, include keeping your toothbrush tilted at a 45% angle against the gum line and sweep or roll the brush away from it. Gently brush the outside, inside and chewing surface of each tooth using short back and forth strokes. Carefully brush the tongue to remove bacteria and freshen breath. Brush after each meal if possible and always remember to floss too for the best overall dental home care.
