Electric Toothbrush vs. Manual Toothbrush
Why switch from your manual toothbrush to an electric one? Did you know that manual brushes leave up to 50% of plaque behind? Plaque is a very sticky, colorless deposit of bacteria that regularly forms on your teeth. The best way to remove it is to attack it from different directions. When you use a manual toothbrush you’re only getting the outer surface of the teeth. Our electric toothbrush has a unique shape, which resembles a dental tool, oscillating, rotating, and pulsating to cover a larger surface area therefore removing 100% more plaque.
