You’ve always heard that you’re supposed to brush for 2 minutes at a time - but you might not have heard as much about how well one brush works over the other. Don’t they all do the same thing? 

Actually, no.


In just two minutes, an electric brush can clean your teeth hundreds of times better than your old manual one.

Clinical studies have repeatedly shown that the use of a high-quality electric toothbrush can greatly impact the levels of plaque biofilm removed from your teeth and along the gumlines. As a result, you can easily combat periodontal disease and prevent tooth stain.

Here’s why: 

  • Microscopic sonic/vibratory movements don’t “sweep over” areas of buildup, the way wide brush strokes with a manual brush do.
  • Hard-to-reach areas can be cleaned more effectively, as the brush simply needs to be held in the right position, rather than moved back-and-forth. 
  • Oxygen is flushed into the gumlines, targeting plaque biofilm that would otherwise contribute to tissue detachment, swelling, and bleeding.
  • An electric brush provides hundreds to thousands of bristle movements per second. Your manual brush can’t do that!

Not All Electric Brushes are Created Equal

Investing in a quality electric brush will be gentler and more effective while cleaning your teeth. Disposable electric brushes are typically designed with budget in mind - not quality.

A reusable electric brush with disposable heads will give you top of the line plaque removal, and be more cost effective over the lifetime of your smile. But those bristles wear out and need to be replaced every few months, otherwise they’ll stop working so well.

At Brusher Club, we make this process as easy and affordable as possible - sending you a new brush head every quarter, so that your investment in a healthy smile keeps on going. Give it a try for yourself!
