Why should we brush? There’s a good reason for all this fussing over the state of our teeth. Fact is we’ve got over 600 species of bacteria running around in our mouths — it’s always warm and wet in there so it’s the perfect breeding ground for nasties.
These bacteria can build up on teeth, becoming plaque. And that plaque can produce tooth decay and also gingivitis, which is gum disease, and peritonitis, which is bone disease. So there are three good reasons to brush well.
Lots of people these days use electric toothbrushes to keep their pearly whites nice and bright. But are they really better? Yes, say dentists, who overwhelmingly recommend them as the best means of keeping your teeth clean and free from plaque and its damaging effects. Yet simply purchasing an electric toothbrush doesn’t guarantee great results. You also need to make sure you brush at least twice daily, spend at least two minutes a session brushing and use the proper brushing technique (yes, there’s a technique to it).
The new Colgate® ProClinical™ A1500 electric toothbrush is the only toothbrush in Australia with smart sensors that automatically adjust the speed and direction of the brush strokes for a superior* clean — so you get different cleaning and care for your teeth and gums. Very clever, isn’t it?
Here is some more information on it:
What do you think? Are electric toothbrushes better than a manual brush?
