Maintaining good oral hygiene can be quite a struggle for some people, but brushing and flossing are essential to fight cavities and gum disease. If you don't enjoy doing these tasks manually, then you might want to try one of the electric toothbrushes or water flossers available from Walgreens. Designed to reduce the effort it takes to clean your teeth, these products are also more effective for many individuals.
Most people are fairly good about brushing their teeth routinely (though not everyone fits in the recommended twice-daily cleanings). Still, unless you are meticulous with your toothbrush, it can be easy to miss plaque in hard-to-reach areas. Electric toothbrushes can make brushing more effective for some people because they are designed and programmed to apply the proper cleaning technique. There is no reason why electric toothbrushes will automatically work better than manual ones, but they do tend to improve how well many people brush because they take over some of the hardest parts of the process.
Electric toothbrushes oscillate automatically, so they are able to move faster and target your teeth more quickly than could ever be possible with a manual toothbrush. They also tend to include sensors that can keep you from brushing too hard as well as timers that make sure you spend an adequate amount of time brushing with each cleaning. Studies have shown that people who use electric toothbrushes often have less plaque and a decreased risk of gingivitis because these users tend to brush more thoroughly-in part, because brushing feels like less "work." A wide selection of toothbrushes and replacement heads are both available from Walgreens.
For years, dentists have lamented how seemingly impossible it is to get patients to floss regularly. Less than half of the population actually flosses daily. This may be because most people don't know how to floss properly or because they don't want to put the necessary time into it. Water flossers introduce another option for individuals who are turned off by regular string floss. These products target a medium to high-pressure stream of water into the spaces between teeth and under the gum line-the same areas typically reached by flossing. Regular use can help remove plaque and reduce the risk of gum disease like gingivitis. Some studies have even shown water flossers to be superior to traditional floss when it comes to effectiveness at reducing gum bleeding. What's most important, however, is that many people find the process of using a water flosser much less arduous than flossing and will actually do it daily. Routine is essential when it comes to maintaining oral hygiene, so you should choose the product that you are most likely to use consistently.
It's so easy to make excuses when it comes to avoiding brushing and flossing, but electric toothbrushes and power flossers make the process much easier. Browse the products available from Walgreens, and you can find the perfect tools to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
