3 reasons why you should switch to a Powered Toothbrush

Most of us must have heard about an electric toothbrush. We have surely spotted them on the racks of our superstores. One question would have always crossed our minds. ‘Why should we invest more in an electric version when all these toothbrushes essentially do the same job?’


Here are three reasons why -

  1. It reduces more plaque, keeps teeth and gums cleaner

The number of strokes is more compared to a manual toothbrush which ultimately reduces more plaque every time you brush thus reducing gum inflammation more effectively.


  1. Compliance among children increases dramatically

Children take to powered toothbrushes more effortlessly which otherwise could be a task with manual brushes.

“Most people using an electric toothbrush don’t go back to ordinary ones,” recalls Dr. Paresh Lotlekar, founder and CEO at Studio32. “It is extremely difficult to get children to brush their teeth. But with powered toothbrushes, there is a sense of enthusiasm and playfulness that is incorporated into routine brushing.”


  1. Proven efficacy among the elderly

“It works wonders among the elderly who lack dexterity”, adds Dr. Paresh. “Old people usually have problems because their motor skills are compromised with age. I recommend a powered toothbrush for them very often.”
