Ladies and gentlemen the fight you have all been waiting for…which type of toothbrush will be the winner in the fight to keep your mouth free of those pesky decay and disease causing bacteria?

In one corner we have the classic model manual toothbrush. This brush has been around for over 5000 years. It started as a “chew stick” and has evolved from hog hair to every size, color or Disney character you want. Advantage goes to the manual toothbrush for availability and low cost.

In the other corner the electric or automatic toothbrush is waiting to be “turned on”. This brush can spin, oscillate or give you speed up to 31,000 brush strokes a minute. The electric brush will time your brushing, sense the pressure you are using, be programed in different languages and some even have a USB connection. Advantage goes to the electric brush for techno 21st century benefits.

And the winner is: YOU! Drs. Tanya and Heidi and our team at Heart of the City Dental will work with you to find the best brush for your oral health.

Remember, any brush is only as good as the hand using it!
