A clean and healthy smile is vital to your overall well-being, and an electric toothbrush can help you achieve that. Tucson dentists Dr. Carol McGonigle, Dr. Thomas Bell, Dr. Brian Nguyen, and Dr. Richard Hibner at Pima Family Dentistry agree that there are many surprising benefits to using an electric toothbrush over the manual version. Here are just five of them: 

1) More Thorough Cleaning – The ability of an electric toothbrush to rotate or vibrate at high speeds makes it much more effective in removing plaque, and food debris from your teeth than a manual brush can be on its own. The vibration means that every time you brush with an electric toothbrush, you get a much deeper clean than traditional brushing alone! 

2) Easier Access To Hard-To-Reach Places – The motion of the bristles on an electric brush makes it easier for those hard-to-reach places like the back molars or between your teeth where plaque often accumulates unnoticed until it’s too late! 

3) Increased Dexterity & Precision – An electronic toothbrush is designed so that its handle fits comfortably into your hand, allowing for greater precision when brushing than manually maneuvering a traditional brush around in circles while trying not to hurt yourself! This precision will help ensure that all areas of your mouth receive adequate attention during each session without leaving any spots untouched. 

 4) Timers For Brushing Length – Most modern versions come equipped with built-in timers, which make sure you spend enough time brushing each area evenly without sacrificing proper technique (the American Dental Association recommends two minutes per session). The timer helps keep consistent good habits while also allowing users who tend towards overbrushing (which can wear away enamel!) to know when they’ve sufficiently done their job before rinsing off their brushes! 

 5) Reduced Plaque & Gingivitis – Studies have shown reduced levels of plaque accumulation and gingivitis among those who use electronic brushes versus those who don’t due to the enhanced cleaning power provided by these devices, as noted above. The enhanced power is excellent news for anyone looking for improved oral health without putting in too much effort! 

All in all, using an electric toothbrush may just be an excellent step toward achieving optimal dental hygiene. It goes a long way when considering how easily they make achieving such results—no wonder why Tucson dentists like Drs McGonigle, Bell, Nguyen, and Hibner from Pima Family Dentistry recommend them so highly.
