Yes, you read that correctly. Christmas is less than two months away and it is time to start getting those wish lists written and sent away to the North Pole. So, why not consider the gift of better dental health for you or your loved ones?
Traditionally, electric toothbrushes and manual toothbrushes are thought to be equally as effective when using a consistent oral health regime: brushing for two minutes twice per day. However, here are a few special considerations that you may not have thought of:
Do you know someone whom suffers from arthritis, carpel tunnel or other dexterity problems? Electric toothbrushes often come equipped with wider handles that are easier to grasp for people whom have swollen, less mobile joints.
Do you or your spouse suffer from general dentinal sensitivity and/or recession? Many models of electric tooth brushes are saddled with a sensor to alarm you when you are pushing too hard; this fantastic function could lower the chances of developing further recession and pre-existing sensitivity.
So what do you get the person who has everything?? Well, an electric tooth brush of course! You can pick yourself up one while you are at it too…
Have a happy Ho Ho Ho- Holidays!
