Waterpik Vs Electric Toothbrush
Thanks for asking!: I prefer the electric vibrating tooth brush over the waterpic. Whatever does the best job in your hands of mechanically removing the plaque around your teeth. Try getting a chewable disclosing tablet from your dentist and you can compare which does the best job removing the plaque. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
TEnter an answer sum: The toothbrush only gets the outside surfaces. You need to clean between your teeth where most tooth decay and gum disease start a water-pik alone won't help as much. Use dental floss or a small brush that fits between your teeth commonly known as an interproximal brush. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can be helpful: Those devices can be very helpful in removing food and debris from your teeth. The most important thing to remove is plaque and bacteria. To completely do this, flossing is a must. It is the only thing that will get between the teeth and gums where the bacteria congregates. Keep up the good work. Read more
Depends: There are basically two types of electric toothbrushes. There is the ‘rotation-oscillation' type. Braun oral b seems to be the market leaders here. The other type are 'sonic' types. Phillips sonicare seems to lead the way here. As for which type is best, it is a personal preference. Both are effective at plaque removal. I personally would prefer the oscillation type. Read more
Electric: I recommend electric toothbrush (sonicare). The vibrations are more effective than the battery. Read more
Not a good idea: Your child really doesn't have the eye-hand coordination to brush properly until about age 5-6. Until then you should be doing it for her. Please take her asap to a pediatric dental specialist for age-appropriate oral hygiene instructions, diet/fluoride/sugar advice, jaw and tooth development evaluation, a thorough examination, and for your child to bond w the specialist. Don't wait until age 2. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
