Electric or Manual Toothbrush: What’s the Difference?

You live in the golden age of toothbrushes.

Until a few decades ago, people used twigs or brushes made from animal hair to clean their teeth: not very soft and not too effective. Now you have a choice of manual brushes with soft, medium, or hard bristles. Or you might choose to go with an electric toothbrush instead.

Have you ever wondered whether manual or electric brushes provide better cleaning? Actually, they both do the job. The key is to brush and floss every day, regardless of the kind of brush you prefer.

Electric Toothbrushes

Manual Toothbrushes

Both types of toothbrushes have their advantages but both types will get the job done as far as removing plaque, if used properly.

At Ocean Orthodontics, we like to say the best brush is the one you’ll use. So if you prefer manual, go for it. If you prefer electric, turn it on.


We are excited and happy to be able to offer the latest and best Orthodontic care to our patients. For more information about how you can ‘Embrace the Experience’, email us or call 07 5493 3200.
