Sensitive teeth can prevent you from brushing your teeth properly, which can cause a ripple-effect with future dental conditions surfacing; it may also reduce the time needed to brush your teeth because of the pain. Studies show electric toothbrushes can help achieve a better, overall clean, however, you may not know which ones are the best. Below are the 3 best types of electric toothbrushes to consider in Staunton, Virginia:

1. Choose an electric toothbrush with soft bristles that will not irritate delicate tissue and the sensitive tooth structure. Depending on your own comfort, smaller brushes may be better.
2. Pick an electric toothbrush that utilizes a gentle vibration, so as not to irritate your teeth, but also does a good job of eliminating bacteria and food particles.
3. Find a toothbrush specifically designed for sensitive teeth to ensure you get the best clean, but without the added worry of added pain & discomfort.
