Now, here is a show I want to keep seeing for the rest of my life: My Teeth healthy!
Taking care of your teeth might sound expensive, but if you don’t take care of them properly and early, the cost to replace them or to try and salvage them, will be way higher than treating them on time.
Believe it or not, and from real facts written, the First toothbrush or Tooth care, were made common by Egyptians, Greeks, Romand and Arabs in 3.000BC. The toothbrushes were made from twigs and leafs but the idea was there.
BUT, and this is actually an amazing thing, the first electric toothbrush was invented in 1939 but only in 1959 in Switzerland, they picked up this invention and started trading. Only by the end of the 90’s, the electric toothbrushes started to be sold on pharmacies and supermarkets at an expensive cost.
Nowadays anyone can afford to have an electric toothbrush, there are several brands and prices for any pocket, but make sure you have the right brush for your teeth and gums and also the rotation of the bristles and the quality of the same.
The Difference between Electric and manual toothbrushes
The purpose of a manual toothbrush is to remove plaque and to stimulate the gums to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
When electric toothbrushes were first introduced to the market, there really wasn’t much of a difference between manual toothbrushes and electric toothbrushes and their ability to remove plaque.
Today, the design and technology of electric toothbrushes has evolved, and some models have been clinically proven to remove more plaque than a manual toothbrush, especially in hard-to-reach areas.
I have grown fond of my newest electric toothbrush.
The problem with the manual toothbrushes is that you use them on “a rush”. You just want to clean up your teeth and that’s it.
Several studies reached the same verdict and now we teach to our little ones that you should brush your teeth for at least 2 minutes: 30 seconds for each quadrant of your teeth (divide your upper teeth in 2 areas – right and left, and the down tooth in 2 areas ergo, 4 quadrants).
With a manual toothbrush you will not do that, with an electric one you will. Specially that now good electric toothbrushes have a timer in the course of their cleaning, beeping or stopping briefly while you brush your teeth, so you know when to change the quadrant.
My Electric Brush is from a subscription box called UberSonic and can be found on Uber Sonic Club. I am really happy and notice a difference when changing from the manual brush to this electric one.
Oh the drama for anyone in the modern world! The pearly white teeth! Thank you Instagram and Photoshop for that (what?…. you thought they weren’t retouched? Mine definitely aren’t as I like to keep it raw and real, just like life.)
The real colour of teeth is a soft yellowish white. This is the real colour. Why? Because your teeth will become stained with what you eat or drink and also because your gastric/stomach gas/juice. It’s our body, and out body has certain things that cannot be modified, such as if you drink and eat, you need your digestive system to make his job, otherwise you will be sick.
But then people started to notice that their teeth needed something and went to dentists to whitening their teeth. They still do and just a tip: go to a good certified dentist, not the the Cheapest “Joe” on the corner that your friend told you.
Fortunately for us, several brands released good quality whitening kits to do at home with good results.
I actually do it at home, every 6 months of more, as I have gum problems, so I do it when my teeth and gums are healthy and not sore.
There are a lot of tips online that can help you and all of them will point out for Electric toothbrushes being the best thing for your teeth.
If you need any tips or where to get a good electric toothbrush, I have subscribed to the Uber Sonic Club, which is a subscription for dental care.
It’s Bimonthly or whenever you want them deliver to you, and on your Starter Pack you will have a sonic electric toothbrush, just like mine above, with all the perks I like, and also they will give you a free whitening Kit and 2 refill head for the toothbrush.
You can see on the Uber Sonic Club online for more details.
I am happy with mine and recommend as they actually are cheaper than to buy a good manual toothbrush on the supermarket, and it treats my teeth with care.
