Advantages and disadvantages of electric toothbrush

The electric toothbrush is a toothbrush invented by Philippe-Guy Woog. The high-speed vibration of the brush head is caused by the rapid rotation or vibration of the motor core, and the toothpaste is instantly decomposed into fine foam to deeply clean the teeth, and at the same time, the bristles vibrate. It can promote the blood circulation of the mouth and has a massage effect on the gum tissue.

Sonic Electric toothbrushes have revolutionized the field of oral health in foreign countries, such as the United States, Australia, and the United Kingdom. Most families use it, and dental clinics and dentists recommend consumers to try it.

Technical principle

In 1954, a doctor from Switzerland, Philippe-Guy Woog, invented the electric toothbrush. After 60 years, the current electric toothbrush is very similar to the product invented by the doctor.

In principle, electric toothbrushes come in two broad categories: rotation and vibration. The rotating toothbrush has a simple principle, that is, the motor drives the circular brush head to rotate, and the common brushing action is performed while enhancing the friction effect. However, the rotating type toothbrush is noisy and the tooth surface cleaning is very clean, but the tooth cleaning is relatively weak. And the tooth wear is large, it is not recommended to use the rotating type of toothbrush for a long time. The vibration type of the toothbrush is more complicated, not only can be cleaned very clean, but also massages the gums, and the price is also higher.

The vibration type toothbrush has an electric drive vibration motor inside, which can make the brush head generate high frequency oscillation perpendicular to the direction of the handle, but the amplitude of the swing is very small, generally about 5 mm from top to bottom. The largest swing in the industry is 6 mm. On the one hand, when brushing your teeth, the high-frequency swinging brush head can efficiently complete the action of washing the teeth. On the other hand, the vibration frequency of more than 30,000 times per minute also causes a large amount of tiny bubbles to be generated in the mixture of toothpaste and water in the mouth. The pressure can be deep into the teeth to clean the dirt.

The electric toothbrush uses a high-speed vibrating movement to drive the brush head to rotate or vibrate to achieve the effect of cleaning the teeth.

Sonic toothbrush means that the vibration frequency of the bristles/brush head is the same or similar to the frequency of the sound wave, so it is also called a sonic vibration toothbrush. It is not literally understood to use “sound waves” to brush your teeth, but the rapid movement of bristles similar to the frequency of sound waves creates a super-clean effect that is nearly 100 times that of traditional manual toothbrushes.

Ultrasonic toothbrush is the use of ultrasonic energy in the periodontal cavitation effect to clear the periodontal bacteria and impurities, its cleaning range can cover all parts of the periodontal. Ultrasonic energy is transmitted to the surface of the teeth and gums through the bristles of the brush head, which loosens plaque, tartar and fine calculus and tooth adhesion, and destroys the parasitic reproduction of bacteria in the hidden pockets of the pockets and the tooth surface. Ultrasonic energy transmitted to the surface of the gum by the bristles that touch the gums further penetrates into the gums, acts on the cell membrane, accelerates blood circulation, promotes metabolism, inhibits inflammation of the gums and bleeding gums, and prevents gum atrophy.

Electric Spray Toothbrush

The electric spray toothbrush is equipped with a can of aerosol toothpaste in the handle of the toothbrush. The toothbrush is provided with a toothpaste channel and a spout. The spout is hidden in the brush bristles, and a soft rubber check valve is also blocked at the spout. The spout, the aerosol toothpaste is sprayed from the spout by the action of the air pressure. After the electric toothbrush is turned on, the aerosol toothpaste will be sprayed onto the teeth at regular intervals. Regardless of how the bristles of the electric toothbrush shake the aerosol, the toothpaste can completely contact the teeth and fully function. And after the liquid toothpaste is used up, you can change it into a can.

Sort

Electric toothbrushes are divided into two types: plug-in power supply and battery-driven. Compared with the traditional manual toothbrush, the electric toothbrush is driven by electric power, and the brush head moves at a speed of several thousand times or even tens of thousands of times per minute. The efficiency is much higher than that of the manual toothbrush, but it also has higher requirements on the bristles, preventing it from being Damage to the gums during brushing.

Electric toothbrushes are divided into many types according to the improvement of technology. Generally, the teeth are cleaned by vibration rotation, and some high-grade ultrasonic instruments are used to clean teeth by pulse and water spray.

Structural features

There are three ways to move the electric toothbrush head: one is the reciprocating linear motion of the brush head, the other is the rotary motion, and the electric toothbrush is a set of two types of brush heads. The bristles of the toothbrush head are made of soft plastic fiber, and the hair ends are processed into a spherical shape, which does not damage the teeth and the gums, and does not affect the brushing effect. Not only can every tooth be cleaned, but also the gums can be massaged. There are strong and weak conversion mode switches on the handle of the toothbrush, and the movement speed of the brush head can be selected according to individual needs.

  2. How to clean the toothbrush hair: After each brushing, put the brush head into the water, turn on the electric switch, gently shake it a few times, then tap the brush head to wash the foreign matter and toothpaste remaining on the bristles.

Disadvantage

   If the bristles of the electric toothbrush are rotated, it is necessary to stay on each tooth surface for a period of time, and it is necessary to take care of the three tooth surfaces to achieve the purpose of cleaning the teeth, which is time consuming. Therefore, the use of an electric toothbrush requires sufficient patience to really clean the teeth. If you just put the toothbrush into your mouth and move it up and down without synchronization, you can’t completely clean the bacteria in the special parts such as the pits, gingival sulcus and interdental joints of the teeth, which can also cause dental disease. Proper use of electric toothbrush does have the effect of removing plaque, preventing caries and periodontitis, but these effects are no different from ordinary toothbrushes. Electric toothbrushes only change the way people brush their teeth, and they can’t completely replace the role of cleaning teeth. However, many people use manual brushing because of improper methods, brushing teeth are too strong, and it is easy to cause unnecessary damage to teeth and gums. Electric toothbrush can alleviate this damage and massage the gums. However, if the electric toothbrush is used in the wrong way, it will cause damage to the teeth. Usually, ordinary toothbrushes are actively brushed up and down, that is, vertical brushes. The vibration frequency and strength of the electric toothbrush are relatively fixed. When rotating, the tooth surface is similar to the horizontal brush, which may cause certain wear on the teeth, which may cause periodontitis. If the teeth themselves are not very good, such as gingivitis and periodontitis, it is best not to choose an electric toothbrush. The frequency and strength of the electric toothbrush are fixed. Because the child can not grasp the proper use method at one time, it is easy to damage the young gums and cause redness and swelling of the gums.

Precautions

When using an electric toothbrush, the following details should be noted:

  1. Do not place the electric toothbrush at a high temperature or in a long-term exposure state, so as to avoid deformation and bending of the bristles due to high temperature;

  2. Wash the toothbrush thoroughly after each use, and remove the moisture as much as possible. Put the toothbrush head up in the cup, or place it in a place with sunlight, so that it is dry and sterilized;

  3. If conditions permit, you can purchase 2 or 3 toothbrushes at the same time to extend the drying time of the toothbrush. This is especially important for people with gingivitis and periodontitis. In addition, the rotation can also maintain the elasticity of the bristles;

  4. Old toothbrushes with bristles that have been loosened or curled and lose their elasticity must be replaced in time, otherwise they are not good for teeth and gums;

  5. The toothbrush should be concentrated and thoroughly cleaned and disinfected once a week;

  6. Toothbrushes cannot be used together to prevent mutual infection.
