With the introduction of technology in the oral care industry, the advent of electric toothbrushes has changed the whole scenario. Electric toothbrushes provide a lot of benefits like gum care protection, removing plaque more effectively etc. However, there are a lot of mistakes that people make while using electric toothbrushes. Some of these mistakes that people make are
NOT REPLACING THE BRUSH HEADS
One of the major mistakes that people do is neglecting to replace the brush heads of their electric toothbrush. It is advisable by specialists that brush heads should be changed often in at every 3-4 months interval. Using the same brush heads reduces the cleansing efficiency of brush and its bristles get worn out. Hence, one should keep replacing the brush heads of electric toothbrush at regular intervals.
WASHING THE ELECTRIC TOOTHBRUSH
Another major mistake that people commit is that they also wash the whole electric toothbrush after brushing teeth. However, one should only clean the brush heads after brushing the teeth and not the whole brush. Washing the whole brush could damage the product or make it no longer functionable. Proper care should be provided so that life of electric toothbrush can be prolonged.
BRUSHING TOO QUICKLY
It is often seen that children or people sometimes rush while brushing their teeth. They don’t devote even the minimum required time to brushing their teeth. Devoting less time would leave some areas of mouth uncleansed and could lead to infections or plaque. Hence, proper time should always be devoted.
PRESSING TOO HARD WHILE BRUSHING
Pushing too hard on teeth with electric toothbrush can damage the tooth enamel or cause you unbearable pain. Let the toothbrush work itself for you and cleanse your teeth. You just need to hold the brush with a light hand avoiding any hard pressure on teeth.
NOT CLEANING YOUR BRUSH HEADS
Not maintaining the sanitization of your electric toothbrush can infect your teeth with cavity or plaque or could damage your teeth. It’s very important to clean the brush heads daily after brushing the teeth so that proper oral care can be maintained and germs in mouth can be avoided. Also, it is advisable to not to share your toothbrush with anyone else.
USING WRONG TECHNIQUES
Using wrong techniques of cleaning teeth is also one of common mistake that people commit while using electric toothbrush. The toothbrush should reach to every corner of the mouth and should be held at 45 degree angle. Proper brushing should be done applying the right cleansing techniques.
USING WRONG BRUSH HEADS
Using the wrong brush head that is not suitable for your teeth can damage the teeth or could cause immense pain. Hence, right brush head should be properly selected before brushing as per the nature of teeth i.e. sensitive or deep cleaning etc.
