Pros for Electric Toothbrushes


If you brush your teeth well you can remove the plaque from your teeth and gums every night. Rushing through the process of brushing can lead to missing parts or areas of the teeth. Many electric toothbrushes come with a timer to help you spend more time with your teeth and can ensure that you hit all of the spots you need.

Safe for gums

If you are mindful when you brush, an electric toothbrush should not hurt your gums or the enamel on your teeth. Don’t press hard on your brush and let the spinning bristles do most of the work for you.

Cons For Electric Toothbrushes


Plug-in toothbrushes may just be annoying if you often travel internationally, because outlets and electricity vary from country to country. You may need to use a manual toothbrush in these situations, so consider keeping both around if you prefer an electric brush.


Because they need electricity or batteries, electric toothbrushes are less eco-friendly than manual toothbrushes. Consider how much energy and plastic goes into making your toothbrush and how long it will last before you invest in an electric toothbrush. If you are environmentally aware, you may consider bamboo toothbrushes to keep plastic out of the trash.
