In today’s fast changing world we are no longer satisfied with using traditional methods, not when there are quicker improved ways anyway. Take the issue of hygiene, for example. In the olden days, the time-honored method of cleaning various parts of one’s body using customary hygiene tools was enough. However, the pressures of modern living have forced individuals to change and speed up even their sanitary practices.
In the eighteenth century you would have been happy to use a rag with soot and salt on it to clean your teeth. That was way before plastic toothbrushes with nylon bristles became popular and you used left, right, up and down motions to maintain your smile. With the constant need for change and as this routine is deemed too slow by today’s standards, some genius invented the first electronic toothbrush in 1954.
In terms of teeth cleaning, an electronic toothbrush is thought to be far more efficient than a regular toothbrush. Aside from the speed that you have when cleaning your teeth, optimum dental care can also be achieved more efficiently with an electric toothbrush. Since the brush movement moves in an even and consistent motion, the teeth and the gums can be thoroughly cleaned before you can even say “Tooth Fairy.”
An amazing innovation in dental care, an electronic toothbrush is available in an assortment of shapes, sizes, and even function. One of its most exemplary features is its head. Compared to that of a standard toothbrush, the head of an electronic toothbrush is more ergonomically designed. It is made to fit inside the user’s mouth without posing risks such as hurting the gums or damaging the mouth cavity.
Since electronic toothbrushes are not manually operated, a unit requires a rechargeable battery or in some models, a power source. This awesome teeth-cleaning gadget functions efficiently with a mere push of a button. By depressing the button, the head of the electric toothbrush will begin to vibrate or rotate. Some models work by moving its tapered head back and forth.
Aside from making your dental hygiene routine more effective, the purpose of this type of toothbrush is to make your teeth cleaner. Due to its automatic function, an electronic toothbrush is more effective in reducing cases of tooth decay. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. The author of this brilliant adage may have been referring to the rechargeable toothbrush since no other toothache remedies can compete with proper dental care via regular and correct brushing.
