The holiday season is a time when shoppers are looking for useful, technological gifts for loved ones near and far. One of the most popular gifts given each year is a Sonicare toothbrush. Developed and sold by Philips, the Sonicare is an outstanding selection for those interested in maintaining a healthy and beautiful smile over a long period of time. Due to its popularity, we often get the question: Are there any real benefits to using a Sonicare? The answer is yes, and here they are:
1. Sonicare’s timer helps patients brush for a full two minutes, dividing the time into 4, 30-second intervals designed for each quadrant of the mouth. While this timer may seem inconsequential, its effects are powerful, as many people subconsciously end their brushing early, perhaps due to a societal sense of rushed time.
2. Sonicare enables patients of all dexterities to reach the extremities of the mouth, cleaning areas that are hard to reach and often neglected, leading to decay and disease.
3. Sonicare ensures that patients don’t brush their teeth too firmly or aggressively, which can cause gum damage and degrade natural enamel. A Sonicare toothbrush performs all of the mechanical brushing action automatically, leaving patients with the sole responsibility of merely guiding the toothbrush throughout the mouth at timed intervals.
If you’re in the market for a new toothbrush for yourself or as a gift for a loved one, Sonicare and other electronic toothbrushes are excellent tools for keeping your mouth healthy and free of decay and gum disease.
