What to Look for When Choosing an Electric Toothbrush

An electric toothbrush is much more efficient at cleaning your teeth than a manual one. However, with so many options available on the market, it can be confusing when trying to decide which one is the best for you.

When shopping for an electric toothbrush consider these features:

● Built-In Timer
Brushing should be done for two minutes at a time. A good electric toothbrush will have a built-in timer that helps you track your brushing. Some will even prompt you every thirty seconds to let you know when to move on to the next quadrant (1/4th) of your mouth.

● Rechargeable
Electric toothbrushes run on batteries, but some of them can’t be replaced, and the ones that do need to be exchanged frequently. Ensuring that you have a toothbrush that is rechargeable will mean that it always works. Just get in the habit of always sitting it on its charging station when you’re done using it.

● Different Size Heads
Not all brush heads are created equal. You may require a different size or shape than the next person. Opt for a product design that allows for interchangeable toothbrush heads.

● Sanitizers Are Nice
Another great feature to look for is a sanitizer, which is a place to store your toothbrush head. It will dry quickly, remove germs, and protect it from dirt and other debris in the air.
