A sonic toothbrush works for you
As children, we’d go to the dentist for checkups, and they’d teach us how to clean our teeth and use the toothbrush properly. Up and down, for ever and ever. But nobody’s patient; some of us press the brush down too hard, some of us move it hurriedly from side to side – there are some of the mistakes we make that stop us from achieving that perfect smile. However, when you get a sonic toothbrush, you won’t need to stick to a rigorous technique anymore.
“Sonic” means that the bristles vibrate rapidly – and it’s this movement of the bristles that removes both plaque and bacteria effectively from the teeth and gums. The vibrations have an extremely high number of strokes per minute (up to 31,000 movements), which you’ll never get with a manual toothbrush. It’s also suitable for people who wear braces. Another advantage is the timer, with the brush itself telling you how long the program should last.
How to choose a sonic toothbrush
Simply put, the higher the number of oscillations per minute, the better. If you have sensitive gums, get a brush with a special setting for this issue. You can also choose from other popular programs to make your life easier – removing dark stains from your teeth, increasing shine, gum massage or deep cleaning, which is perfect in the evening.
You will, of course, need the best toothpaste to go with it. Is tooth whitening the most important thing for you? Try the professional standard of Mediblanc Whitening. And Mediblanc Healthy Gums will look after your gums.
Geek tip: some high-tech sonic toothbrushes allow you to pair them with your smartphone and keep a check on the cleanliness of every tooth.
