We often recommend electric toothbrushes to our patients. They are an excellent tool for ensuring that your teeth are brushed effectively and with a soft brush head! The 2 minute rule still applies but these types of brushes have been shown to clean more effectively than a typical manual technique.
We have found that they work better for young children as most children do not have the manual dexterity to brush properly until they are about 8 years of age. Help them establish solid lifelong habits by flossing and then brushing for two minutes with a manual or electric toothbrush.
