The two most popular and effective electric toothbrushes on the market are Oral-B and Sonicare. There are many benefits to using an electric brush. Better plaque removal, less pressure applied to the brush with a built in pressure indicator, brushing for the recommended 2min with a timer, and alerts the user when to move to the next quadrant in the mouth. Excess pressure during brushing can cause mechanical trauma to the enamel and gingival tissues. It is recommended to change your brush heads every 3 months or during any time of sickness.
