Keeping yourself healthy is very important. Besides maintaining basic habits like eating right and exercising, having good hygiene should always be high on your to-do list. This starts with brushing your teeth. Your mouth is home to hundreds of germs that can affect not only your breath but also your overall health. When it comes to brushing your teeth, choosing the right toothbrush can make a world of difference. Find out how a spinbrush can transform your teeth!

Why Brushing Your Teeth Is Important

Before we get into the spinbrush, lets discuss why brushing your and picking the right toothbrush is important. As you know, not brushing your teeth allows the bacteria in your mouth grow. The longer the bacteria stays, the more plaque forms. From here, plaque can cause some serious damage like cavities or even swollen or bleeding gums, known as gingivitis. Also, not brushing can lead to weakened connections between your teeth and gums, causing your teeth to even become loose.

Picking the right brush for you may seem difficult due to the variety of options available. Toothbrushes come in many styles and have different features including variations in brush hardness, special bristles, tongue scrapers or electric components. The best thing to do is to ask you dentist about which brands and styles he or she recommends. But many patients have been able to dramatically improve their oral health by simply using a spinbrush.

A spinbrush is an electric toothbrush with a spinning, or oscillating, head. This allows the toothbrush to do most of the work for you. They come in various models and are made by a few different companies. Some are disposable while others are battery operated or even rechargeable. Non-disposable models are equipped with replaceable heads that should be changed every 3-4 moths like a regular toothbrush. Some spinbrushes are very advanced and can run at different speeds and come with a variety of accessories. The main reason people prefer spinbrushes over manual brushes is that they have to ability to reach hard t0 reach spots and offer a superior cleaning experience.

How A Spinbrush Can Clean Your Teeth Better

Due to the spinning motion, the bristles of a spinbrush can get in between the cracks of your teeth more easily. This allows for better removal of plaque. According to spinbrush.com, these toothbrushes remove 70 percent more plaque than a normal brush. This is mostly due to people not understanding the proper way to brush their teeth. The spinbrush makes up for that lack of technique.

Spinbrushes also tend to have thicker handles because of the power supply inside. This allows children and older people to get a better grip. Since it’s an electric brush, the user get more brushstrokes in than they would with a manual. It all depends on the model you buy and its capabilities but some spinbrushes can achieve over 16,000 strokes per minute.

If done too frequently, this can begin to wear down your enamel. Also, brushing too hard can push back your gums, expose the root of your teeth and cause excruciating pain. Some spinbrushes come come with a pressure sensor and will make a noise or vibrate when you’re brushing too hard. Most also come with timers, which will prevent you from brushing to long and help you to avoid irritation and bleeding.
