Keeping up with your Teeth

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, was made common by Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and Arabs in 3.000BC. The toothbrushes were made from twigs and leaves, but the idea was there.

However, the first electric toothbrush was invented in 1939 but only in 1959 in Switzerland, they picked up this invention and start trading. Only by the end of the 90s, the electric toothbrushes start to be sold in 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 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 have evolved, and some models have been clinically proven to remove more plaque than a manual toothbrush, especially in hard-to-reach areas. However, there are so many options on the market now, that it can be difficult to choose the right toothbrush for you.

It’s often best to get a professional opinion. At Whites Dental, for instance, your dentist can recommend the best type of toothbrush for your oral health based on your specific needs. Take a look at for more information.

Electric Toothbrush

Electric toothbrushes have been increasing in terms of sales and models, and more people are choosing them over manual brushes. 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 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 teeth in 2 areas ergo, 4 quadrants).

With a manual toothbrush, you will not do that, with an electric one you will, especially since 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, such as UberSonic and can be found on Uber Sonic Club.


Modern world problems: the pearly white teeth! The reality is that 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 of your gastric/stomach gas/juice. It’s our body, and our body has certain things that cannot be modified, such as if you drink and eat, you need your digestive system to do its job, otherwise, you will be sick.
