Brushing teeth regularly is very important, especially to kids with growing permanent teeth. But kids are usually lazy to brush their teeth. The electric toothbrushes make brushing fun for them instead of it being a chore.
Electric toothbrushes are phenomenal among kids because of its design and features. Kids can choose from among a myriad of designs including famous Disney characters and other cartoon favorites like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Care Bears. Most models are also ergonomically developed and carry comfortable grips for fragile hands.
Additional feature that entice brushing is the music that plays during the brushing activity. Musical toothbrushes play the favorite songs of children while developing better dental hygiene. A musical toothbrush works by the surging of sound vibrations from the bristles through the teeth. Kids must brush to hear the songs. The volume gets louder when brushing intensity is increased. If they brush very well, they can enjoy listening to two minutes of their favorite songs.
The use of an electric toothbrush among kids has shown scores of benefits. As compared to a manual toothbrush, an electric toothbrush provides fresher breath and cleaner teeth. It can brush off and eliminate germs and plaque. An electric brush is also highly efficient and effective in penetrating deep crests and between teeth that are not easy to be cleaned by a manual toothbrush. This type of toothbrush is also immensely beneficial to children having finger dexterity difficulties and to adults suffering from severe arthritis and some sort of wrist damages.
The majority of commercial electric brushes feature bigger ergonomic handles than that of manual ones. Also, some models have integrated timers enabling users to be aware when they have already brushed for a complete 2 minutes, the recommended time for tooth brushing. Electric toothbrushes are a hit with kids and adults alike.
These toothbrushes are normally categorized based on their types of bristles – very soft, soft, medium, hard, and very hard. Dentists recommend soft bristles for kids, and adults with gum problems. The latest models of electric toothbrushes feature mixed bristles of different hardness.
An electric toothbrush works with an electrically-powered tool. The brush head moves in an oscillating manner, facilitating gentle yet rigid cleaning edges of the mouth and between the teeth. These amazing tools basically hold tiny motors that move the brush head. Users just have to move the brush all over the mouth’s inner portions without making the habitual brushing actions.
