One question that some critics of the electric toothbrushes ask is, are they really worth it? Is there really a benefit of using them instead of their manual counterparts?
Some people swear by them while others see them as overrated and nothing more than a normal toothbrush that cleans teeth. They would therefore consider it waste of money and not worth the $100 or so to acquire them.
Other people’s opinions aside, i would consider electric toothbrushes as important. They are expensive and out of reach of many people but they do come with so many benefits that manual toothbrushes lack. A one time $100 investment in something that gives you a good oral hygiene and contributes to the longevity of your teeth is not a big deal.
So anyone who tells you electric toothbrushes are overrated is either lying to you or has never used them and in no position to advice you on their suitability or not.
Electric toothbrushes especially those manufactured by Philips sonicare and Oral B are recommended by dentists. If you need faster, thorough and deeper cleaning of your teeth, electric toothbrushes are the way to go. You need to buy yourself one and see for yourself how amazing they can make your teeth and by extension your oral cavity.
