In the past few years, many people have been discussing whether electric toothbrushes are easy to use or whether traditional toothbrushes are better. Of course, many people prefer electric toothbrushes, thinking that the advantages and benefits of electric toothbrushes in all aspects are crushing traditional toothbrushes. Is that really the case?What is the difference between an electric toothbrush and a traditional toothbrush?
- Friction pattern and frequency
The electric toothbrush uses the motor to drive the brush head to rub to clean the teeth and oral cavity. Its friction method is to rub regularly in four directions: up, down, left, and right. The friction frequency depends on the speed of the motor, while the manual toothbrush is manually Brushing, friction and frequency come from manual speed, and the direction of friction is irregular.
- way of force
Electric toothbrushes generate uniform and stable friction through the motor, while manual toothbrushes generate flexible and free friction through manual brushing.
- Applicable people
Because the electric toothbrush is driven by the motor to drive the brush head to rub, it does not take into account special circumstances and does not flexibly adjust the friction force in real time. Although there are multiple gear modes to choose from, after all, it is not as flexible as a manual toothbrush, so the electric toothbrush is not very flexible. Suitable for seniors over 60 years old. Manual toothbrushes can flexibly adjust the intensity and frequency of brushing according to their feel and tooth fit, so they are suitable for almost everyone.
- price difference
Generally, the price of traditional toothbrushes is only a few yuan to dozens of yuan, but electric toothbrushes with higher quality are more common.
The cleaning power of an electric toothbrush is indeed better than that of a traditional toothbrush. On the one hand, the friction frequency brought by its vibration frequency is much higher than that of a traditional toothbrush. On the other hand, the electric toothbrush has a uniform and stable vibration and a friction range. Very regular, the cleaning efficiency and cleaning area will be much larger than traditional toothbrushes. On the third hand, the brushing time is greatly shortened. With the improvement of cleaning efficiency, the brushing time is greatly shortened. The traditional toothbrush generally takes 10 minutes to brush your teeth at a time, and the electric toothbrush 2 minutes is enough. Of course, there are also some advantages, such as the pressure shock absorption function of some electric toothbrushes, which is much more scientific and smarter than traditional toothbrushes.
However, better to choose a toothbrush that suits you in order to give full play to its cleaning effect.
