Is a manual or electric toothbrush the best?

Back to posts

Depending what you read and where you hear it, you may get a slightly different version as to whether manual or electric toothbrushes are better.

As dentists we generally recommend that electric toothbrushes are to be favoured over manual, because they give an effective all-round clean.

That doesn’t mean to say however that manual toothbrushes are no good or do not work.

The emphasis and point about cleaning your teeth is the way you do it is what counts, rather than what you actually do it with. Even so, we know some people still have preferences for one or the other and in this article we’ll take a look and evaluate both.
