Electric Brush versus Manual Brushes
There have been multiple studies comparing the effectiveness of manual
brushes as opposed to electric brushes.
Although not all electric brushes are the same, these studies conclude that
in general electric brushes are more efficient in controlling plaque than manual
brushes. Theoretically, you can do a very good brushing with a regular hand
brush, but the movements of an electric brush make the task easier and more
Also, some electric brushes (Sonicare) produce sonic vibrations that
are difficult to mimic with a hand brush! Other electric brushes like Oral-B and
Rotadent have small heads that help you access hard-to-reach areas of your
mouth. This aspect is more important when you are talking about someone with
orthodontic braces or a history of gum disease.
