With the advanced technology widely available in today’s modern age, it is no wonder that our standard household objects like toothbrushes are now being equipped with the highest quality of technology. Features such as built-in timers and multiple settings are being used in electric toothbrushes. It is no real surprise that Electric toothbrushes are keeping our mouths overall healthier, than a regular Manual toothbrush.
However, there is still much doubt over whether an Electric Toothbrush is worth the money. Here is a simple breakdown of the difference between Manual and Electric Toothbrushes to make the decision easier for you.
Electric Toothbrushes can provide a more superior plaque removal when compared to a regular manual toothbrush. This is because, electric toothbrushes do all the work for you by providing the ‘brushing action’ with a touch of a button. As a result, it will allow the mouth to get a deeper and more thorough clean. Along with the vibrations, Electric toothbrushes come with an in-built timer to make sure that you are in fact brushing your teeth for the recommended 2 minutes and to ensure that all four quadrants of your mouth are getting cleaned properly. These benefits are greatly helpful to those who suffer with arthritis or other conditions that can limit one’s dexterity.
As Electric Toothbrushes are in fact rechargeable, they to do tend to carry a slightly higher price tag, when you compare it to a regular Manual Toothbrush (which you can also buy in packs). However, this ability to be recharged allows Electric Toothbrushes to be considered more environmentally friendly due to its reusability and longer life expectancy – which is something we highly value at Roaman.
Another upside to these rechargeable Electric Toothbrushes is that they come with affordable replacement head options. It is recommended by dental professionals, that toothbrushes or the toothbrush heads should be replaced every 3 months to help maintain the optimal oral health and limit the spread of any bad bacteria. This cost can quickly add up if you are having to fork out tremendous amounts of money - which is why at Roaman we designed our replacement heads, with our customers in mind!
The Roaman T10 Electric Toothbrushes feature a in-built timer to make sure your mouth is getting the clean it deserves! The timer also features a 30-sec interval that reminds you to switch to another quadrant whilst you are brushing. Allowing for your mouth to get the attention it needs to maintain a superior clean!
The T10 Electric Toothbrushes also comes with three different modes; Whiten – to polish up those pearly white (great if you are a coffee or wine drinker like us!), Sensitive – the perfect setting if you have sensitive teeth and/or gums, and Clean – which is a setting to give your mouth a deep and thorough clean.
If you want to look at the full spectrum of benefits that an Electric toothbrush offers, it can help to give you a clear picture of the value it can provide long term. So, getting that superior clean does not have to cost-prohibited.
For some regular Manual Toothbrushes can help them feel as though they have more control over the brushing process – especially with the pressure and speed. The cost is often more than not, the reason people do not want to switch over from a manual toothbrush to an electric one. Although, Electric Toothbrushes are now more accessible than ever before. The biggest challenge that a regular manual toothbrush faces, is that it is very easy not to adhere to the 2-minute brushing time. This can then result in a less than ideal teeth clean – which can lead to bad breath and other oral health problems long term.
“Given the advantages of electric toothbrushes, having one is an excellent investment and could really benefit the health of your mouth.” – Dr. N. Carter, ORAL HEALTH FOUNDATION (2018) ‘National Smile Month Nationwide Survey 2019’, Atomik Research, May 2019, Sample 2,003.
No matter which toothbrush you decide, the rules for maintaining oral health are the same. Make sure you are replacing your toothbrush or, toothbrush had every 3 months, brushing for the recommend duration, covering all quadrants in the month and being consistent is the key to great oral health!
