Should I use an electric or manual toothbrush?

Should I use an electric or manual toothbrush?

We know that brushing your teeth can be a challenge with or without braces. One of the questions we get frequently asked is what type of toothbrush should I use? Blue Orthodontics supports both types of toothbrushes. Your decision should be based off of your specific situation.  The diagram below describes why you should or should not use an electric toothbrush. 

The two most popular electric brushes out on the market are Sonicare and Oral B. The important thing to remember when using an electric toothbrush is that they typically have their own “technique” on how to use them. Using them incorrectly can lead to damage of the tissue in the mouth. We love to see clean mouths..... so remember- make sure you brush and floss before you see your dentist or orthodontist!
