Who Says A Toothbrush Isn’t A Great Christmas Gift?

What sort of toothbrush are you using? If you’re still using a manual toothbrush, Christmas could be a great time to upgrade to an electric toothbrush that can greatly improve your dental hygiene. Likewise, if you are searching for the perfect present for a friend or family member, it’s worth finding out just how much difference an electric toothbrush can make to oral health so that you can give a gift that really matters.

Here at Guiney Dental Clinic, we often recommend electric toothbrushes to our patients, and this is because we believe they can offer a superior clean. There are many reasons for this, as we discuss below, and you can talk to our dentists or dental hygienist to find out more about how to keep your teeth clean and healthy.

The Benefits Of Electric Toothbrushes:

Many people believe that they are cleaning their teeth properly, but an electric toothbrush can offer a deeper, more thorough clean. Whether you use a manual toothbrush or an electric toothbrush, your dentist can advise you on the best way to clean effectively. Electric toothbrushes can:

  1. Remove more plaque. Plaque is the cause of many dental health problems, and it builds up between the teeth when debris is not effectively removed by brushing and flossing. Electric toothbrushes can remove more plaque than their manual counterparts, so using one can reduce the likelihood of developing cavities and gum disease.
  2. Make brushing easier. Electric toothbrushes make effective brushing easier since they indicate when you have brushed for the correct amount of time, and most have intermittent signals to let you know when you should brush each section of your mouth. It is also less effort to brush with an electric toothbrush, so you can save your energy for the rest of your day!
  3. Give consistent results. When using a manual toothbrush, many people favour one side or section of the mouth, making tooth decay more likely in other areas. For most people, especially children, an electric toothbrush is very useful in monitoring the quality of your brushing and ensuring consistently clean teeth.

Are You Looking for a Family Dentist In Ballincollig?

If you want to make sure that your children have a healthy relationship with their teeth, you should choose a dentist who is experienced in working with children. If children develop a fear of the dentist while they are young, this can cause lifelong problems, and fears often build up when parents model fearful behaviour. For this reason, it’s vital to have a dentist you trust, and to work with him or her to keep you and your family smiling.

At Guiney Dental Clinic, we welcome your whole family and make sure that children have a good experience of dental care. To make an appointment, call the Guiney Dental Clinic today on 021-481 0535.
