Electric Toothbrush

An electric toothbrush can help to keep your teeth clean and your gums healthy. By using an electric toothbrush twice a day, you can remove harmful plaque and reduce the build-up of tartar on your teeth. The latest generation of electric toothbrushes is designed to make it as easy as possible to clean your teeth thoroughly and meet the recommendations of the American Dental Association (ADA). At Walgreens, we carry a large variety of electric toothbrushes from top brands like Philips Sonicare.

Why Use an Electric Toothbrush?

Electric toothbrushes have a number of advantages over manual brushes. Some people find using a manual toothbrush difficult due to physical problems affecting their hands or arms. Children may also find it difficult to perform the precise movements needed to get a thorough clean with a manual brush - and many kids think that using an electric toothbrush is a lot of fun! Some electric toothbrushes offer features that most manual brushes do not, such as a whitening mode that polishes the teeth, or a timer that makes sure you brush your teeth for the full two minutes recommended by the ADA.

How to Choose an Electric Toothbrush

With so many electric toothbrushes available, making the right selection can seem like an overwhelming task. However, there is a process you can follow to choose the right electric toothbrush for you or your child. First, decide which features you want your new toothbrush to have. For example, do you need a toothbrush with a sensitive or whitening mode? If you travel frequently, then a portable brush that comes with a travel case could be a very convenient choice. Some toothbrushes and chargers are designed to look elegant in your bathroom. Others have designs that appeal to kids.

When to Consult Your Dentist

If you are not sure whether you have any special dental health needs, such as sensitive teeth or gums, ask your dentist for advice. Your dentist might be able to recommend a particular type of toothbrush that best suits your needs. In general, you should always use a toothbrush that carries the ADA Seal of Acceptance which shows that a dental product is safe to use, meets standards of durability, and effectively protects against gum disease and plaque.

How to Use an Electric Toothbrush

Any toothbrush will only protect your oral health if you use it properly. The ADA recommends brushing for at least two minutes twice a day. To get the most benefit from your new electric toothbrush, angle the brush at 45 degrees to the gum line. When you use a powered rather than a manual brush, you do not need to scrub at your teeth; instead, hold the brush head against each tooth surface for a few moments before moving on to the next.

Replacing the Brush Head on an Electric Toothbrush

When buying an electric toothbrush, you need to think ahead. You will need to replace the brush head roughly once every three or four months. In general, you will need to buy brush heads of the same brand as the handle, so factor this potential cost into your buying decision. Some brands offer different styles of brush heads that cater to different needs, such as sensitive or whitening heads. Changing the head of an electric toothbrush is usually very easy - simply detach the old head and clip the new one into place.
