A toothbrush is an essential tool for brushing our teeth every day. There are many different sizes and materials of toothbrushes available on the market.
For most young people, it may seem inconvenient to brush their teeth with a regular toothbrush when they can go out without driving, order food without cooking, or lie down without sitting, which is why electric toothbrushes have become a popular tool for contemporary young people to clean their teeth.
Which is Better: Electric Toothbrush or Regular Toothbrush?
As people's living standards improve, more and more people are using electric toothbrushes. However, not everyone knows how to use an electric toothbrush properly. If the brushing technique is incorrect, the cleaning effect may not reach the ideal level.
Then comes the question, do electric toothbrushes really work better than regular toothbrushes?
Electric toothbrushes on the market are divided into rotating/oscillating type and sonic type. The rotating/oscillating brush head rotates back and forth at high speed to remove plaque on the surface of the teeth. Sonic toothbrushes use movement frequency (260 times or more per second) to help clean teeth instead of sonic cleaning.
The Proscenic H600w electric toothbrush vibrates at a high frequency of 42,000 times per minute. Its high-frequency magnetic levitation motor provides teeth with hydrotherapy, allowing the bristles to penetrate the gaps in the teeth and remove blind spots in teeth cleaning, such as food residues and plaque, thereby achieving a more thorough cleaning of the teeth. It is also IPX7 waterproof, able to withstand being splashed with water, and enables users to brush their teeth during a shower. With four different teeth cleaning modes, even people with sensitive teeth can use it.
According to research conducted by a dental physician in Taiwan, after three weeks of use, the number of bacteria on a toothbrush can reach up to one million, which is more than the amount of bacteria found in nine cups of dishwater and 80 times the amount found in toilet water. The brushing method and storage of the toothbrush can affect the growth of bacteria, and oral diseases can enter through the mouth.
Although using antibacterial measures can partially protect oral health, it cannot completely eliminate the bacteria that adhere to the brush head, which can silently multiply. Therefore, sterilization is necessary. After placing the Proscenic H600w electric toothbrush into the cup cover, the lid is closed, and the ultraviolet sterilization device automatically starts, providing comprehensive antibacterial treatment for the brush head within 5 minutes. Each time the toothbrush is used, it is safe and sterile like a new toothbrush.
Therefore, we should pay attention to how we brush our teeth. Just like regular toothbrushes, electric toothbrushes also need to have their brush heads replaced every three months. This is because after using the brush head for a period of time, the bristles become rough, which can easily damage the gums. Tests have also shown that new brush heads remove 30% more plaque than brush heads used for three months.
In our daily lives, we should remember to brush our teeth in the correct way, for an adequate amount of time, use dental floss, pay attention to gum bleeding and toothaches, and it's important to have regular dental checkups~
Which is better, an electric toothbrush or a regular toothbrush?
As for whether electric toothbrushes or traditional toothbrushes are better, it's not a one-size-fits-all answer. However, those who prefer to use electric toothbrushes, they may consider the Proscenic H600w electric toothbrush, which has superior bacterial isolation and sterilization capabilities. Compared to most electric toothbrushes on the market, it's healthier. Compared to expensive toothbrushes with sterilization functions, it's more economical.
