Periodontal (Gum) Disease Treatment

The short answer - yes!  Modern scientific studies show that electric toothbrushes remove more plaque than manual brushes.  These same studies show that electric toothbrushes are perfectly safe for your teeth and gums.  You are actually less likely to cause gum recession or tooth damage with an electric toothbrush than you are with a manual brush!

Many electric toothbrushes come with a timer to ensure you are brushing for the full 2 minute recommendation.  Electric toothbrushes can be particularly helpful for anyone who has lost or limited hand dexterity, whether due to natural aging or injury.

Adding an electric toothbrush into your oral hygiene routine can be an easy way to improve your oral health!
