Kirsty’s Top 3 Tips for Buying an Electric Toothbrush


Kirsty’s Top 3 Tips for Buying an Electric Toothbrush

In this video, Kirsty, hygienist from Hello Dental Colchester, shares her top three tips for selecting the perfect electric toothbrush to enhance your oral hygiene routine. With these expert recommendations, you’ll be able to make an informed decision and ensure your teeth get the best care possible.

Key Points Covered:

Choose an Electric Toothbrush with a Docking Station:

Kirsty explains the convenience and benefits of having a docking station for your electric toothbrush. A docking station not only keeps your toothbrush charged and ready to use but also helps to organize your bathroom space, making it easier to maintain a clean and hygienic environment.

Ensure your Electric Toothbrush a Pressure Sensor:

Discover why a pressure sensor is a crucial feature. Kirsty discusses how a pressure sensor helps protect your gums from damage caused by brushing too hard. This feature alerts you if you’re applying too much pressure, ensuring you maintain the right amount of force for effective yet gentle cleaning.

Opt for a Small Round Head:

Learn about the advantages of a small round brush head. Kirsty highlights that a small round head can reach all areas of your mouth, including those hard-to-reach spots, ensuring a thorough clean. The round shape is designed to mimic professional dental tools, providing a superior clean compared to manual brushing.

There are many different electric toothbrushes available on the market, each with its own set of features. By following these top tips, you’ll be able to find the one that best suits your needs. If you’re still unsure, don’t hesitate to ask your hygienist for help in choosing the perfect electric toothbrush.

By following these top tips from Kirsty from Hello Dental Colchester, you’ll be well on your way to choosing an electric toothbrush that meets your needs and promotes optimal oral health. For more top tips check out our other blog posts https://www.hellodental.co.uk/blog/
