Believe it or not, many school-aged children are now enthusiastic about brushing their teeth. We can thank the invention of the rechargeable power toothbrush for this happy phenomenon.
Rechargable power toothbrush's are easy to use—that’s part of their appeal. And although a rechargeable power toothbrush costs more than a manual toothbrush, it may be worth it if your child (or you) is more enthusiastic about using it.
Most rechargeable power toothbrushes operate at anywhere from 5,000 to 30,000 strokes on your teeth per minute, and because of this, it takes less time to do a thorough job. Some of our rechargeable power toothbrushes have even more power than this.
To use a rechargeable power toothbrush, just place toothpaste on the brush head and hold the brush at a 45-degree angle, just as you would a manual toothbrush. Then turn on the rechargeable power and move the brush from tooth to tooth. The smaller heads of most rechargeable power toothbrushes usually brush about one tooth at a time, depending on the size of your teeth. Guide the rechargeable brush along the outer surfaces, inner surfaces and finally chewing surfaces of your teeth.
Even with a rechargeable power toothbrush, you should spend about two minutes brushing to ensure that you’ve cleaned each tooth. When you’ve finished brushing, simply rinse the brush head with water and allow it to dry.
