Electric Toothbrushes, Are They Worth it?
I was never a believer of electric toothbrushes until I graduated hygiene school and I was given one for free. Yes, I know, but I figured that since I was given one, I would at least give it a try and see what all the fuss was about. For years I would go between my manual toothbrush and my electric one, leaving the electric one home when I traveled. However, now, I have realized that I don’t leave home without it! At first, I thought I am a pretty good at brushing and don’t really need it, but found that mid-afternoon, my teeth would get the fuzzy feeling on them. When I totally committed and threw away my manual toothbrush, I found that no longer did I get the fuzzies on my teeth! Oh man, I was so excited!
So, the question remains…is it worth it? YES! And here’s the great thing about it….there is a 30 day money back guarantee from Oral-B and Sonicare that if you don’t like the product, you take it back and get your money back! These are the top two selling brands for electric toothbrushes and they are awesome! Both companies will tell you that their product is superior but when it comes down to it, it is a personal preference. So next time you’re in the dental isle, take a minute and compare them side by side and see which one looks more appealing to you. The average price is about $90-$120 dollars. (Please also asked us, when you come in to the office, we sell electric toothbrushes here for a great price!) Yes, it seems a lot for a toothbrush, but you will be amazed (and so will we) with the change in your oral health! So try one out and let’s keep on smiling!
