Are electric toothbrushes better than manual toothbrushes?

If a manual toothbrush is used with the proper technique and for the appropriate amount of time, it can perform just as well as an electric toothbrush. Many people do not brush for the recommended 2 minutes, or have difficulty with hand dexterity. In those, and many other, cases, an electric toothbrush may be a better choice.

Ask you dentist if you have any concerns about which type of toothbrush is better suited for your needs.
