Now, more and more people are starting to use electric toothbrushes, but some people are hesitant. Usually we buy a manual toothbrush, which costs only a few yuan and more than ten yuan, while the electric toothbrush costs more than one hundred yuan. Is it really worth the money? Is an electric toothbrush good? Let’s introduce the electric toothbrush to everyone. Make a reference.
1. Is an electric toothbrush better than a manual toothbrush?
Scientific experiments and investigations have shown that there are indeed many benefits to using electric toothbrushes frequently.
1. Cleaner more thoroughly, long-term use can whiten teeth
Many people are used to brushing their teeth carelessly. As a result, many bacteria and food remain on the teeth. Over time, there will be black dental plaque attached to the teeth, and the formation of stubborn dental calculus. Compared with manual toothbrushes, electric toothbrushes rely on the bristles to vibrate at high speed, which can not only thoroughly clean the surface of the teeth, but also in-depth cleaning between the teeth. So it can help you effectively remove dental plaque, prevent the generation of tartar, make your teeth healthier, and gradually achieve the whitening effect after long-term use. Moreover, the use of electric toothbrushes can save time and is an efficient dental cleaning product suitable for lazy people.
2. A moving toothbrush is safer than a manual toothbrush and has less wear on teeth
The electric toothbrush uses the bristles to vibrate at a high speed to decompose the toothpaste into fine foam and drive the water to clean the teeth. Compared with manual brushing, the friction between the teeth is smaller. A large number of studies have proven that electric toothbrushes are safer than manual toothbrushes and are not harmful to soft and hard tissues. The most common wedge-like abrasion in dentistry is caused by improper methods when manually brushing teeth. Because most of us have not received professional brushing training, the brushing method is more or less problematic. Long-term incorrect brushing may cause wedge-like wear, especially horizontal brushing, which should not be underestimated.
3, less gum bleeding, prevention of various oral diseases
If you often bleed when brushing your teeth, you need to change to an electric toothbrush. Professional dentists tell us that bleeding gums are actually not caused by brushing too hard. It is because your teeth are not brushed clean normally, and the bacteria near your gums stimulate your gums, causing your gums to become inflamed and bleeding. In severe cases, your teeth can become loose. Experiments have shown that electric toothbrushes can remove 38% more bacteria from teeth and reduce gum bleeding by 60% than manual toothbrushes.
4. Help you develop good tooth brushing habits
When you brush your teeth manually, it depends on your mood. When we are in a good mood, we will brush for more time, and when we are in a hurry, we will brush casually, so it is difficult to guarantee an effective cleaning time. The mid-to-high-end electric toothbrushes are generally equipped with a timer function, which can let you know how much time you need to spend brushing your teeth. Moreover, because the electric toothbrush is very convenient to use, it will not feel boring, but it will become a kind of enjoyment.
2. How to buy an electric toothbrush?
Introduced the benefits of so many electric toothbrushes, are you eager to try and want to buy an electric toothbrush? But there are so many electric toothbrushes, ranging from tens of dollars to thousands of dollars, how to buy an electric toothbrush that suits you? ? We divide the price of electric toothbrushes into 4 grades and give you a brief introduction.
1, less than 100 yuan. If you just want to experience it first, you can consider trying it, but for long-term use, it is not recommended to buy. We checked tens of thousands of evaluations related to electric toothbrushes and said that electric toothbrushes are not good. Most of them are low-priced products. Regardless of the brand, an electric toothbrush under 100 yuan is difficult to have a good cleaning effect in terms of efficacy, and the price is too low and the quality is not good, which may cause damage to the teeth.
2, 100-300 yuan. This stage is dominated by domestic electric toothbrushes, such as Roman, Mengya, Libode, and MaterialBeijia. If you pay more attention to cost-effectiveness, this one is the most suitable. The product of about 200 yuan is good in terms of cleaning effect and service life. It’s just that the appearance design and accessories are slightly inferior to the high-priced products. If you want to pursue cost performance, you must sacrifice part of the design perfection. In addition, this grade of electric toothbrush is not recommended to pursue a big brand. If it is a big brand, products at this price are often only entry-level, and the cleaning effect and functional configuration are not particularly good.
3, 300-500 yuan. This grade of electric toothbrushes are basically Philips and Oral B products. The effect of this grade of products is basically the same as that of the domestically produced 200 or so products. Why the price will double, the most important thing is the brand premium, that is, the right of big brands to pursue better profits. In addition, the electric toothbrush of this grade is guaranteed in terms of design and quality, and the appearance may be more refined than the toothbrush of the previous grade.
4, 500 yuan or more, even thousands. Although this type of product claims to have many functions, even smart. But in terms of actual efficacy, there is currently no data to prove that they are better than 100-500 yuan products. Because of the high price and beautiful appearance, celebrities and local tyrants buy more of these products. If you pay more attention to fashion, brand, and trend, you can consider choosing this category.
Finally, I remind everyone that when choosing an electric toothbrush, you must consider the cost of the brush head. Electric toothbrushes are basically no problem after using them for about 2 years. The price of a few hundred is easy to accept. On average, there is not much money per day. If the price of the brush head is around RMB 20, it is close to a manual toothbrush. After all, using the best DuPont bristles, the cost is not very high. But if the price of the brush head is too high, you have to change one in three months, which will greatly increase your cost of use. For brush heads above 60 yuan, or even hundreds, I suggest you be cautious when choosing, and don’t just look at the price of electric toothbrushes.
How about an electric toothbrush? The electric toothbrush has been invented and used for more than 60 years, but it has been used for medical care before becoming a daily necessities. At present, electric toothbrushes are very popular in developed countries such as Europe and the United States, and the production chain in China is relatively mature, but the concept of consumption is still in the emerging stage. If you pay attention to oral health and want to have healthy and white teeth, I recommend you to try an electric toothbrush.
