When it comes to looking and feeling our best, one of the most important things to keep in tip top shape is our smile. But what should we be doing to promote good oral health? Many of us may rely on the sample toothbrushes we receive at our six-month checkups, but not all toothbrushes are made the same. Using a manual brush is better than nothing, but many oral health professionals overwhelmingly encourage patients to switch to an electric toothbrush. In general, brushes help patients get their mouths as cleaner, with studies showing that electric toothbrushes remove more plaque bacteria than a manual brush.


  • Electric Toothbrushes can greatly improve overall oral hygiene by helping prevent cavities and gum disease.
  • Electric toothbrush bristles vibrate or rotate at high speeds to help remove plaque from teeth and gums better than manual brushes.
  • Some electric toothbrushes have built-in features like multiple brushing modes so you can use the setting most comfortable to you.
  • Electric toothbrushes are a great choice for people with dexterity issues or those with braces since they do most of the work for you.

In this interview, Dr. Chris Strandburg, a well-known dentist based in Los Angeles will share his top tips on making oral health a priority. He’ll also talk more about electric toothbrushes – from their benefits to which ones are the most effective in keeping your pearly whites healthy.
