Electric vs. Manual

Chicago dentist Dr. Alin Alkass takes pride in staying abreast of the latest technology and newest dental trends. One trend in particular is the electric toothbrush. Although they are a relatively new type of toothbrush, electric toothbrushes have quickly grown in popularity over the last few years. This trend has left many patients wondering if these new brushes could be a viable alternative to a manual toothbrush. These small, rechargeable battery-operated devices are, in fact, dentist approved. Electric toothbrushes are highly recommended for all patients young and old, especially those who suffer from conditions, such as arthritis, that affect their ability to effectively brush. At your next dental visit, be sure to ask Dr. Alin Alkass which type of toothbrush is right for you.
