Manual or Electric Toothbrush?
'Electric toothbrushes clean teeth and gums much better than a manual toothbrush, according to the findings of a new study. Scientists found that people who use an electric toothbrush have healthier gums, less tooth decay and also keep their teeth for longer, compared with those who use a manual toothbrush'
Research carried out by The Oral Health Foundation has been said to be ground-breaking when assessing how effective electric toothbrushes are when compared to manual brushing.

'Health experts have been speaking about the benefits of electric toothbrushes for many years. This latest piece of evidence is one of the strongest and clearest yet – electric toothbrushes are better for our oral health'
