The benefits of using a sonic toothbrush include whiter teeth, healthier gums and superior ease of use. Its speed and powerful cleaning action are helpful for maneuvering around orthodontic appliances and dental implants. Sonic toothbrushes stimulate saliva production, which makes them potentially helpful for people who suffer from dry mouth.
Clinical studies prove that sonic toothbrushes remove coffee, tobacco and tea stains more effectively than manual toothbrushes. Sonic toothbrushes are also clinically proven to remove up to 20 percent more plaque from between the teeth compared to a manual toothbrush. Superior removal of stains and plaque can result in naturally whiter teeth.
Sonic toothbrushes provide gentle yet precise cleaning by making 30,000 to 40,000 brush strokes per minute. The gentle bristle design pushes fluid between the teeth and underneath the gum line for a thorough cleaning. This helps discourage the progression of gingivitis and the development of periodontal pockets.
Because the brush does most of the work, a sonic toothbrush takes less effort to use than a manual toothbrush and requires minimal pressure applied to the teeth. The toothbrush's vibrations help prevent tooth decay and infection by encouraging saliva production. It can also help ease the symptoms of Sjogren's syndrome and dry mouth.
