Are you brushing your teeth correctly?
Brushing your teeth the right way is much more complex than you might think. We hope that all of you brush your teeth at least twice a day and dentists also recommend brushing your teeth for at least 2 minutes.
But let’s be honest, how many of us are actually doing this right?
The combination of toothpaste and correct brushing action helps to remove the biofilm of bacteria that builds up in the mouth, teeth and gums. If not removed, the build-up becomes plaque and can lead to:
- Gum disease
- Eventual tooth loss (without proper treatment)
- Not to mention, unsightly, discoloured, yellow-looking teeth!
Ability to remove plaque
Studies consistently show that electric toothbrushes decrease plaque and gingivitis (gum disease) more than manual ones!
And there are two reasons why:
- Sonic vibrations allow for more micro-movements, which clean more deeply.
- Bristles on an electric toothbrush can be in thinner and pointier clusters, which helps deliver the kind of targeted cleaning that can help improve your oral health
Because of their thinner and pointier clusters, electric toothbrushes are especially suitable for anyone with braces or any dental restorations. Instead of relying on yourself to get into those tight spaces, electric toothbrushes do (most of) the work for you.
Remember, the more plaque you remove, the better your oral health will be.
Gentleness on teeth and gums
If you’re overly enthusiastic about brushing your teeth (i.e. really going at it), well, here’s some bad news. Brushing with excessive force can cause some issues like:
- Sensitive teeth
- Receding gums
- Teeth decay
But the beauty of having an electric toothbrush is it’s ability to go gentle. The best electric toothbrushes (aka the ZenyumSonic and ZenyumSonic Go) comes with a gentle mode so you can avoid over-brushing with excessive force.
Plus points of our ZenyumSonic and ZenyumSonic Toothbursh
Our Sonic toothbrushes have the right amount of vibrations and oscillation to help prevent you from brushing too hard. They are able to strike the right balance between:
- Getting the toothbrush close to the gum (so all the plaque is removed)
- Not pressing too hard and causing damage to the teeth and gums
What are you waiting for? It is time to electrify your brushing routine!
Throw out your old manual toothbrush and switch to an electric one to experience healthier, cleaner teeth with less effort.
