Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely! While manual and electric toothbrushes both remove plaque, the bristles of powered toothbrushes vibrate and rotate, creating more micro-movements which does a more thorough job.

However, not all toothbrushes are created equal, so we recommend different brands based on each patient's unique needs. 

Benefits of Electric Toothbrushes

There are many patients for whom an electric toothbrush is an excellent choice.

  • Electric toothbrushes work well for everyone but are especially beneficial for dexterity issues, including those with arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome, the elderly, and people with developmental disabilities. 
  • Children can also benefit from using an electric toothbrush since it's more engaging than a manual brush and can help them establish good oral hygiene habits. 
  • Orthodontic patients may also find that electric toothbrushes help them do a more thorough job removing plaque with brackets and wires in place.

Is an Electric Toothbrush Right for You?

If you want to see which toothbrush is right for you, ask your hygienist at your next teeth cleaning. They will tell you what they recommend, and you can decide if you would like to invest in an electric toothbrush.

The greatest misconception about dentistry is that it has to hurt—it simply does not!

Many patients have the mindset that dentistry will be painful, often resulting from a negative experience in the past. At North Idaho Dental Group, our goal is to ensure you are as comfortable as possible at all times. 

A good example is someone who squirms when being told they need a root canal because of the stories they have heard. The reality is that, in many cases, patients at NIDG fall asleep during the procedure!
