One of the latest innovation in the health technology is Electric Toothbrush. An electronic toothbrush is a specially designed toothbrush which uses electric power to move the brush head. This is claimed by scientist that this kind of brushes are much more effective than normal manual toothbrushes. Because these toothbrushes leaves less room for patients to brush incorrectly. These are usually called ‘rotary toothbrushes’. This kind of toothbrushes were first invented in the year 1880. Although a true electric toothbrush was first conceived in the year 1880 and first started selling in Switzerland in the year 1939.
The electronic brushes are mainly invented for the patients with limited motor skills and as well as for orthodontic patients. Generally electric toothbrush guide such as the Braun made toothbrushes have become increasingly cheap. However, part of this is offset by the high retail cost of the disposable brush heads.
The electronic compartments present in most of the toothbrushes are completely sealed to prevent any damage due to contact on water. There are no metal contacts available with this tooth cleaning gadgets. These toothbrushes use to charge with inductive charging technique. These use replaceable batteries, disposable or rechargeable, storing them in the bottom, generally thicker than a normal manual toothbrush. According the results of the research it has been found that most electric toothbrushes are much more effective than the manual variety. The exception is only the “rotation-oscillation”-models, Braun’s Oral B-series fall in this category. According to a research done by some world’s best dental experts, it has been noticed that the way the electronic brushing is performed is of a higher importance than the choice of brush.
Some electric toothbrush comes with an option that sets the power of the brushing action to either a “high” or “low” level. In maximum cases the effectiveness of the brush will be superior when the toothbrush is set to its higher setting. The lower power setting is usually suggested for those who have just started to use these electronic devices and find that their oral tissues aren’t healthy enough to tolerate the vigorous brushing action of the toothbrush when it is set on its highest setting. The elegant size and shape of an electric toothbrush’s brush head is vary from brand and model. It is very obvious that, a grown adult will be able to accommodate the use of a larger brush head than a young teenager.
