9 Smart toothbrushes for better dental hygiene
If you want to maintain a perfect white smile, it’s essential to brush your teeth the right way. These smart toothbrushes should help you achieve better dental hygiene and gum health without putting in extra effort.
- What is a smart toothbrush? It is an electric toothbrush with intelligent features, such as pressure sensors and Bluetooth connectivity.
- Are smart toothbrushes better than electric toothbrushes? They can be. You are essentially getting the same clean as an electric brush, but with dental health guidance from algorithms.
- Do you need to floss if you use a smart toothbrush? You probably should. Flossing is about cleaning the parts of your mouth that no brush can reach.
In the endless war against plaque, technology has a part to play. Smart toothbrushes can improve your brushing technique, protect your gums and even incentivize your kids to brush. So, which should you buy? Here are the best we have come across in the past year.
