How to buy the best electric toothbrush for the least amount of money
Electric toothbrushes are no longer just for the lazy. Experimental data show that electric toothbrush can remove seven times more plaque than manual toothbrush. Brushing your teeth may seem like a small thing, but using an electric toothbrush to keep your mouth healthy is definitely an input-output thing.
The secret to efficient cleaning of electric toothbrushes
Electric toothbrushes are cleaner than ordinary toothbrushes. General user’s brushing posture is not the same, but most people are difficult to achieve the standard brushing posture, so manual toothbrush is difficult to thoroughly clean the teeth, cleaning intensity is also different from person to person. The electric toothbrush USES the mode of high-speed rotation or high-frequency vibration. Basically, as long as the bristles stay on the tooth surface for a moment, it can effectively clean the food residue and bacteria attached to the tooth surface.
Ordinary toothbrush in cleaning the back of the mouth molars, because of the space is narrow and other factors, it is difficult to clean, and here is often food residue and other easy to gather. Electric toothbrush because brush head was used rotate or vibrate means, need to brush head to fit tooth face only, all round small move can realize thorough cleanness.
In addition, brushing your teeth by hand is an extremely fast task. Many people will use heavy hand to clean their teeth, which may not only cause gum damage, but also cause additional wear and tear on teeth, which is not very efficient. The mechanical cleaning frequency of the electric tooth brush head is far better than the hand speed (for example, the vibration frequency of the electric tooth brush head of a certain brand is more than 31000 times per minute). When brushing, the direction and Angle of the brush head can be simply controlled, which is simple and efficient.
According to the advice of professional oral experts, it’s best to brush your teeth for 3 minutes each time, but how many people can do it in real life? At present, the mainstream electric toothbrushes all support the regular reminder function, which is convenient for users to grasp the scientific brushing time reasonably.
How to choose electric toothbrush
The appearance of the electric toothbrush is mainly composed of toothbrush body and brush, and brush head is removable type design for easy more slippery, and the body of the electric toothbrush is mainly include toothbrush power switch and charge indicator and charging interface, various brands of electric toothbrushes may also have subtle differences and different, but the main structure of the same.
At present electric toothbrush basically is divided for rotate type and shake type two kinds, rotate type toothbrush can see a circle to rotate apparently in brush head brush, shake type is similar with the brush head of common toothbrush, two kinds of clean effect does not have the difference in essence. So to the exterior choice of electric toothbrush, choose and buy according to personal preference.
Head selection for electric toothbrush
A good electric toothbrush can last for a year or two or even several years. As a consumable, the brush head can’t last that long. The brush head service life of electric toothbrush is in normally 1-3 months, so the author still suggests everybody chooses suit kind of product, take advantage of cheapness more tun a few brush head or very cost-effective.
At present, different brands of toothbrushes almost all use exclusive brush heads, so when you buy an electric toothbrush, it is necessary to pay attention to the price of replacing the head, after all, the head is the cost of electric toothbrushes in the future.
What’s the difference between rotary and vibrating
In fact, we have mentioned rotary and vibrating electric toothbrushes in the previous appearance section. As you can see from the name, the cleaning principle of the rotary electric toothbrush is to rely on the rotating brush head to clean teeth, which is almost the same as the principle of the rotating brush of the road sweeper.
Vibration-type electric toothbrush is to simulate our daily manual brushing state, through the high-frequency vibration of the brush head to realize the reciprocating motion between the bristle and the tooth surface, to achieve the purpose of cleaning teeth.
Vibrating electric toothbrush vibration frequency is usually in every minute 2-3 million times, rotating toothbrush rotation speed can also reach tens of thousands of turns per minute, cleaning efficiency is far higher than manual brushing.
There is no essential difference in cleaning capacity between the two electric toothbrushes, but vibrating toothbrushes drive the flow of water and air bubbles to produce a flow of cleaning power, so as to effectively clear the gap between teeth and other dead corners in the mouth.
In addition, rotary electric toothbrushes are more likely to cause tooth wear than acoustic vibrating electric toothbrushes. According to experts, when the brushing force is greater than 90g, the wear of teeth increases with the increase of the brushing force, and the rotary electric toothbrush wears more teeth on average than acoustic vibration electric toothbrush, which is more likely to cause enamel and gum damage.
Brushing reminder and endurance
The scientific brushing time is about 3 minutes each time. At present, mainstream electric toothbrushes all have the function of timing reminder, such as 30-second vibration reminder, 2-minute automatic pause, etc., which can guide the rhythm and time of daily brushing.
As for the battery life, we usually put the toothbrush on the charging base after we use it at home, so the battery life is not a big problem. But for frequent business travelers, the battery life directly determines whether or not to carry a charging dock with you.
Currently, rotary electric toothbrushes typically last a week (two three-minute sessions a day), while vibrating toothbrushes last a little longer, but usually no more than two weeks.
In addition, after use for a period of time, electric toothbrush life will shrink, which is determined by the battery characteristics, so we need to have a reasonable estimate of the actual life of electric toothbrush.
As for the soft and hard bristles, everyone’s experience is different, so I suggest you try it out before making a decision, or pay attention to the user’s purchase comments.
In terms of waterproofing, the waterproofing level of almost all electric toothbrushes is IPX7, so normal dousing water use is not at all, even if a short time in the water will not be a problem. However, you should read the instructions carefully before using the product to avoid any damage caused by improper operation.
