Whether it’s an electric toothbrush or a manual toothbrush, we need to make sure that every area of our teeth can be brushed when we brush them. Therefore, we can divide our teeth into five areas: the inner lower teeth, the outer lower teeth, the inner upper teeth, the outer upper teeth, and the occlusal surface.
In the specific brushing process, make sure that the bristles and teeth are at a certain angle, generally when brushing the inner and outer sides of the upper and lower teeth, make sure that the bristles are at an angle of 45 degrees to the teeth, and when cleaning the occlusal surface, make sure that the bristles of the toothbrush are perpendicular to the occlusal surface of the teeth.
Special attention should be paid to the use of electric toothbrushes, do not press the brush handle so that the bristles and teeth contact, which not only does not achieve the desired cleaning effect, but will hurt the gums. Especially when using sonic electric toothbrush, just let the bristles and teeth at a certain angle gently contact can be clean teeth, but also to protect the gum health.
Some of you may ask, if you use a sonic electric toothbrush, can gentle contact with your teeth really provide a good cleaning effect?The answer is yes. Sonic electric toothbrushes do not rely on the mechanical rotation of the brush head, but on the high frequency vibration of the brush head to achieve the effect of cleaning teeth.
Sonic electric toothbrushes use high performance magnetic levitation sonic motor, 30-40,000 times per minute high frequency sonic vibration. At this frequency, the toothpaste on the surface of the brush head instantly decomposes and forms numerous tiny bubbles with the water in the mouth, which then bursts. The energy generated by this process allows the cleaning molecules in the toothpaste to penetrate deep into the various crevices of the teeth, cleaning the crevices and plaque in depth, achieving a more powerful cleaning effect compared to a manual toothbrush or an ordinary electric toothbrush.
In addition, when using a sonic electric toothbrush, it is best to keep the brushing time within 2-2.5 minutes. In the choice of brush head, do not choose a brush head with soft bristles that are too hard to avoid damaging the gums.
