Using a rechargeable Electric Toothbrush can be a great way to get your children or you interested in brushing their teeth. Most can be used with interchangeable coloured heads, so the entire family can use the same brush.
Rechargeable electric toothbrushes are easy to use and that is part of their appeal. And although a rechargeable electric toothbrush costs more than a manual toothbrush, it may be worth it if your child (or you) is more enthusiastic about using it.
To use a rechargeable electric toothbrush, just place a pea sized amount of toothpaste on the brush head and hold the brush at a 45-degree angle, just as you would a manual toothbrush. Then turn on the rechargeable electric brush and move the brush from tooth to tooth.
The smaller heads of most rechargeable electric toothbrushes usually brush about one tooth at a time, depending on the size of your teeth. Guide the electric brush along the front surfaces, back surfaces, and chewing surfaces of each tooth.
Even with a rechargeable electric toothbrush, you should spend about two minutes brushing to ensure that you’ve cleaned each tooth. A timer should vibrate the brush when two minutes has been completed to eliminate the need for self timing. When you’ve finished brushing, simply rinse the brush head with water and allow it to dry.
