When you’re buying an electric toothbrush, there are many things to consider. You want to purchase the right brush, right? Well, our dentists, Dr. Ray McKinley & Brittany McKinley-Holloway, is happy to help you do just that. If you choose the right electric toothbrush, you can be on your way toward a top-notch oral health and smile. When buying an electric toothbrush, you should get one that:

-Is sonic: Sonic electric toothbrushes deliver 18,000 to 40,000 strokes per minute. This helps the brush clean the teeth faster and more effectively than other toothbrushes that are not sonic.

-Has a pressure sensor: The pressure sensor can help you maintain a strong and healthy smile. This is because the sensor notifies you when you’re pushing the brush too hard against the teeth. Brushing too hard or with too much pressure can wear down the enamel and even harm the gums.

-Has a two-minute timer: It’s important to brush for two minutes each time you brush. So, make sure your toothbrush has a two-minute timer so you can scrub your smile for the appropriate amount of time.
