Are you interested in brushing with an electric toothbrush? If so, good for you! Electric toothbrushes can properly and effectively clean the teeth. Before you purchase your new brush, our pediatric dentist, Dr. Rawaha Memon, encourages you to consider a few things. To choose the best brush possible, it’s important to select one that:

-Is sonic: Sonic electric toothbrushes deliver 18,000 to 40,000 strokes per minute. This helps the brush clean the teeth faster and more effectively than toothbrushes that are not sonic.

-Has a pressure sensor: The pressure sensor is a handy characteristic because it notifies you when you are brushing too hard against the teeth. This is beneficial because brushing too hard can harm your teeth and gums. In fact, it can wear down the tooth enamel and even make the gums move away from the teeth.

-Has a two-minute timer: It’s very important to brush your teeth for two minutes each time. If you brush less than two minutes or more than two minutes, it can harm the smile. So, make sure your toothbrush has the two-minute timer.
