Electric toothbrushes are a great addition to your dental home care. Hand held toothbrushes work well, but using an electric one is so much better. At Livery Dental, we recommend the Oral-B electric toothbrushes. Right now, we have the Oral-B Triumph.
The Oral-B collection uses an oscillating and rotating motion which leaves the teeth feeling smooth and clean. With the Triumph, there is a clock which turns into a timer. The American Dental Association states that we should brush our teeth for two minutes. The Triumph breaks brushing time into four areas for thirty seconds in each area of the mouth, making it more manageable to clean for two minutes. There are also four brush modes; clean, soft, massage, and polish. With these settings, there is no reason to not feel that great clean feeling. If you tend to scrub when you brush, the Triumph also lets you know if you are pushing too hard. A red light will pop up on the timer, allowing you to know where exactly you are brushing too hard.
The nice thing about all Oral-B toothbrushes is that the bristles on the brush will turn from blue to white when it is time to change it. On the electric toothbrushes, you simply through away the head and place a new one on the base. There are even color coded bands to use if more than one person is using the base. That way you never use the wrong head.
At Livery Dental, we offer the Oral-B Triumph. All of us here use the Triumph at home! If you are interested in one you can always ask. We even have a $10 rebate from Oral-B. Brush, brush away!
