Dr. Kami Hoss recommends that you brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes. However, over 30% of people don’t follow this basic rule of hygiene. Let’s face it—brushing your teeth manually could be a tedious task, especially if you’ve just woken up and are not in the mood to do anything yet. Because of this, electric toothbrushes have gained popularity over the years. Most electric toothbrush models have timers set to the minimum accepted time, and this makes sure that you’ll brush your teeth as thoroughly as possible. Dr. Kami Hoss also says that electric toothbrushes clear away plaque and debris better than manual brushing, keeping your teeth and gums healthy and minty-fresh.
There are hundreds of electric toothbrushes available in the market. With so many choices, how do you choose the right one for you? There are quite a few factors you should consider, such as the power source, the cost, features, and type. Electric toothbrushes are either rechargeable or battery-powered, and the cost may vary according to the type of power supply and the brushing action. Here are some electric toothbrushes Dr. Kami Hoss would like you to check out:
Philips Sonicare 2
The Philips Sonicare range of brushes are shaped like a regular toothbrush and are rechargeable. The toothbrush head vibrates sideways at high speeds, sometimes reaching up to 500 vibrations per second. It has a two-minute timer and produces considerably less noise than most other electric toothbrushes in the market. Dr. Kami Hoss recommends the Philips Sonicare 2 for those who would like a bit of peace and quiet in the morning.
Dr. Kami Hoss likes the Goby range of brushes as it has features not found in many other brands. For instance, it has a 30-second quadrant timer, which is like a reminder to shift over the brush to another part of your mouth. It helps make sure that all your teeth are clean. While Goby only carries rotating brush heads, it delivers new brush heads straight to your home, making it a convenient choice for those who don’t have enough time to go out and get a fresh brush every few months.
Oral-B Black 7000
Dr. Kami Hoss considers the Oral-B Black 7000 the best electric toothbrush money can buy. It uses a small, rounded brush head that shifts directions quickly; cleaning your teeth efficiently. Scientific studies indicate that this type of brush might be better at reducing gingivitis and plaque buildup, and the smaller brush is easier to move around in tight spaces. While it is a bit more expensive compared to most other brands, the Oral-B Black 7000 is worth the investment if only because of its extra features, such as a pressure sensor that prevents gum irritation and bleeding.
