Here at Foley Dental Group, we get asked frequently about Sonicare toothbrushes. Our patients want to know what these devices are all about and why so many dentists and oral physicians are raving over these electronic toothbrushes.
We’re here to tell you all about the many benefits that Sonicare provides! If you’re thinking of switching from a manual toothbrush to the Sonicare, read on about these 6 benefits below!
Fantastic Plaque Removal – Your manual toothbrush does a fine job removing plaque; that’s for sure. However, Sonicare just does it better. It has been clinically proven to be significantly more effective at removing plaque than a manual toothbrush is. This is by far the best reason to start using a Sonicare toothbrush.
Healthier, Happier Gums – Whenever plaque gets in between your gums and teeth, it can turn into tartar and cause gingivitis. If this plaque isn’t removed every day, the gum disease can eventually lead to periodontal disease. Sonicare’s high-speed bristle motion and cleaning action can reach deep between your teeth and knock out a lot of plaque. It’s even clinically proven to help reverse gingivitis. Of course, you still need to floss every single day to take care of plaque, but Sonicare can dig deeper than a manual toothbrush to help make plaque management less of a pain.
Helps Remove Stains – Are you a coffee-lover or tea-drinker but hate having those horrible stains on your teeth? The Sonicare toothbrush can help with that! This brush in particular is clinically proven to reduce stains from coffee, tea, and even soda with frequent use.
Gentle Brushing – Getting rid of plaque is serious business, but it’s a task that should be done gently. The Sonicare toothbrush may be a powerful tool to use, but its extra-soft bristles and gentle cleaning action allows you to use much less pressure than you would using a manual brush.
Automatic Shut-Off – We know that we are supposed to brush our teeth for two minutes twice a day. Unless you’re staring at a clock, you might not realize that you’re probably brushing for much less time than you think. With the Sonicare toothbrush, you don’t even have to worry about timing – the toothbrush will shut itself off automatically after 2 minutes is up, taking the guesswork out of it!
Good For Those With Braces – Are you in the middle of orthodontic treatment? We recommend using the Sonicare toothbrush to get your teeth and gums clean. The Sonicare is proven superior to manual toothbrushes when it comes to reducing plaque and gum irritation around orthodontic appliances like braces. Its unique brushing action directs fluid deep between your teeth, below the gumline, and around the brackets for a more effective clean.
