Which model of electric toothbrush should I get?

Which model of electric toothbrush should I get?

Fact is that the type of electric toothbrush you choose is up to your own personal preference. That said, there are a few features our Surrey dentists recommend looking out for.

A Small Brush Head

A small brush head can make it easier for you to reach the little nooks and crannies in the back of your mouth, and behind your front teeth. Electric toothbrushes with small brush heads simply provide better maneuverability and access to tight spaces than those with larger brush heads. Better maneuverability means more thorough cleaning.

A Round, Rotating Head

Varieties of electric toothbrushes that feature round, rotating heads mimic the ideal circular brushing motion many dentists recommend. All you have to do is move the toothbrush over your teeth and your toothbrush will make the circular motions for you. Brushing couldn't be easier! 

Built-In Timer

There are a number of electric toothbrushes equipped with built-in timers that go off after two minutes, which is the recommended length of time you should be brushing. These handy built-in timers tell you exactly how long to brush. You may discover that two minutes is a lot longer than you had imagined. 

Other Features to Consider

There are a number of other useful features that you may find helpful, depending on your needs. Some electric toothbrushes, for instance, have a pressure sensor, which can be quite useful for those who brush too hard, or have sensitive gums. Other models feature timers that go off every 30 seconds, so that you know exactly how long to brush each quadrant of your mouth.
