If you happen to follow us on Facebook, you may have noticed we asked a question about what you use for toothbrushes. One of the responses received was what is actually recommended in the power vs. non-powered brushing tools. The answer to this question was to use a Sonicare toothbrush with non-abrasive toothpaste. There are plenty of good reasons to switch to a Sonicare brush if you have not done so already.

The Sonicare powered toothbrush is proven to remove more plaque than any manual brush. This is important because it helps keep germs off of your teeth and gums. Plaque contains a wide variety of bacteria that can lead to an abundance of dental issues. Removing as much plaque as possible is one way to keep your visits with the dental chair short and sweet.

A Sonicare can also play a large role in reducing your chances of getting gingivitis, the most common form of gum disease. Gingivitis is caused when plaque builds up between your teeth and gums. To further the benefits of this amazing toothbrush, it is capable of actually reversing this common gum disease since it massages your gums during brushings. The massaging helps to stimulate blood flow in the gums, thus keeping them healthy and better able to fight off unwanted diseases.

Finally, even though the Sonicare toothbrush can easily combat plaque in those hard to reach places, it is healthier for your mouth thanks to super soft bristles. These softer bristles provide a gentle cleaning, thus taking more pressure off of your teeth during your brushing routine.

The Sonicare is a great toothbrush to use every day. It will even help prolong the fresh feeling you get after a regular dental check-up. The next time you are shopping for a toothbrush, give this one some hard consideration.

1. Brush Twice a Day, Every Day – For most this is probably already a routine, and if so then you’re already on the road to great oral health. Not only does brushing twice a day help fight plaque and tooth decay, but there are also indications it may lead to other health benefits as well. It seems that there is a link between brushing twice a day and a reduced chance of heart disease, due to the fact that brushing reduces gum inflammation, which may be directly linked to clogged arteries.
