Electric toothbrushes remove plaque more effciently than regular manual toothbrushes. This is attributed to the fact that the electric brush does the brushing action for you. This makes the electric toothbrush easier to use versus the standard manual ones. Electric toothbrushes can also be altered depending on the needs of the patient. Due to this, the electric toothbrush possesses different types and features available on the brush itself. This makes it easy to find a setting and particular brush that suits your specific oral health needs. There are also physical benefits of the electric toothbrush. Indivudals who have arthritis or other similar conditions may find using an electric toothbrush less painful due to the ease of use and decreased physical labor during the brushing process. Electric toothbrushes may also help kids brush their teeth more effectively as the brush can reach areas of the tooth that children may miss and also provides a "fun" factor while brushing teeth due to the active vibrational motion.
