Interesting facts about electrical toothbrushes

Rotating or vibrating toothbrushes - what cleans better?

Often the spirits differ on the question of which electrical toothbrush is now better for clean teeth and a well -groomed gums - a rotating or a vibrant.In any case, the testers of the Stiftung Warentest could not find a clear advantage of one or the other kind of brush movement.So the following applies: the brush species with which you feel most comfortable is also the best for you.

How do I use an electric toothbrush properly?

When brushing the teeth with an electric toothbrush, it is important that you move the toothbrush calmly from tooth to tooth.In contrast to a manual toothbrush, it does not have to be moved anywhere.Simply hold them on your teeth at a 45 degree angle.Do not press the brush head too tightly.

Perform systematically by first cleaning a jaw and then cleaning the other.Start on one side of the jaw and clean each tooth individually.Only when you have completely cleaned the first jaw, do the toothbrush lead to the other jaw.It is important that you do not switch back and forth between the upper and lower jaw.

How often should the brush head be changed?

The brush head of an electric toothbrush should be switched to a new one every three to four months.However, if you already find any damage such as protruding or heavily pressed bristles, you should change the brush head earlier.The old brush head belongs in household waste after use, not in the yellow sack or the recycling bin.
