Why an Electric Toothbrush is a Great Gift


Christmas is just around the corner, which means holiday shopping is in full swing. If you’re still searching for the perfect gift for that special someone, think about their smile. Why not give them something they can use all year long?

Unlike a bike, piece of clothing, or a video game, an electric toothbrush is something your loved one will use twice a day, every day. And while it may not seem like the most exciting gift, you can be assured that whoever receives one will be very grateful, as the festive season can be somewhat of a nightmare for our mouths, as holiday cookies, treats, and drinks can wreak havoc on our teeth and gums.

Are Electric Toothbrushes Better than Manual Toothbrushes?

Electric toothbrushes provide superior plaque removal to regular manual toothbrushes. And because they provide the brushing action for you, many people find using power toothbrushes easier than using regular manual ones. Additionally, with so many different types and features available, it's easy to find one that suits any and all specific oral health needs.

Keep up with Oral Hygiene

With an electric toothbrush, maintaining oral health becomes easier. Electric toothbrushes can remove more plaque, stimulate the gums, and remove bacteria from those hard to reach places. Using an electric toothbrush is also less fatiguing than a manual toothbrush. This makes brushing more enjoyable, which will lead to consistent brushing sessions each day.

Prevent Complications

Almost all oral health complications can be prevented. Root canals, gum disease, cavities, and more can all be avoided with proper cleaning on a regular basis.

If properly used, an electric toothbrush removes more plaque and bacteria than a regular manual toothbrush. By using an electric toothbrush, you’ll increase the longevity and effectiveness of your dental care routine. Followed by daily flossing and mouthwash, your smile will grow stronger and healthier.

Make them Smile

Why not be the reason someone smiles this holiday season? There are many great reasons to give an electric toothbrush as a gift. So, if you still have that last minute Christmas shopping to do, consider an electric toothbrush to literally bring a smile to a loved one this year.
