We’ve all heard and seen of both electric and manual type toothbrushes. Some of us may even own both as well. But which one is really a better choice for you? To aid you in your decision, you can read a toothbrush review or two from others.
First, it’s important to know that there are several different types of electric toothbrushes. There are sonic toothbrushes that vibrate bristles to clean your teeth, but there are also battery-powered toothbrushes that spin and move in predetermined patterns. Sonic toothbrushes are very powerful and will clean your teeth immensely well, but they do require being plugged in on a very regular basis. Battery-powered toothbrushes are also fairly effective, but the handle you have to hold, because of the batteries, may be a little bulky for smaller hands.
This brush has been around forever, and they are reliable, cheap, and come in tons of different colors. This type of toothbrush is great for kids to start out on, and is very useful for business trips. Though they may not do the best job possible cleaning your teeth, as long as you keep up with brushing twice a day, they often do an adequate enough job.
