Ah yes, the question of the ages… manual or electric toothbrush? Okay, maybe it’s not quite that dramatic, but it’s a question folks have been asking themselves for decades, ever since the first electric toothbrush came on the scene more than a half century ago. If you’re an electric toothbrush user, you probably swear by it. And, if you’re someone who just wants to use a nice, regular manual toothbrush, you likely have found one you love and you have every intention of sticking with it. But should you switch from your usual routine and cross over to the other side? Is there really that much of a difference between the manual and electric toothbrush? Top cosmetic dentists have answers to these and other questions about manual and electric toothbrushes that may help you decide which is right for you.
