Electric toothbrushes have been shown to be better at removing plaque, and where there is less plaque, there is likely to be less gum problems and less decay. These power brushes, with their rotating, spinning, and pulsating movements, do all of the work while you simply guide the toothbrush around the mouth.

This takes the guesswork out of your hygiene routine as you will know each time you brush if you are spending enough time to remove the plaque that has built up on your teeth.
