Brushing your teeth is essential because it will allow you to prevent several dental diseases: gingivitis, periodontitis, tooth decay and other oral diseases. If you want to keep your breath fresh and soft, then you are obliged to choose a good quality electric toothbrush.

Recently propelled into the market, this machine has surfaced and gained traction. Its demand continues to increase. To understand why it is so popular, we will talk to you through this article about its effectiveness and its user guide.

But first, find out what an electric toothbrush is.

An electric toothbrush: what exactly is it?

An electric toothbrush is a toothbrushing machine with multiple functions. Thanks to its functions, you will thoroughly clean your teeth without damaging the enamel and your gums.

It offers a super handle that can easily hold a brush head and batteries or battery pack. The electric toothbrush models are completely waterproof, you can even use your device in your bathroom or clean it under your tap just after use without risk of damaging its internal circuit. As for the risk of electrocution, you don't have to worry.

If you want to have optimal toothbrushing results, you must use your toothbrush properly. Discover some steps of use below.

What are the steps for using an electric toothbrush?

Step 1: prepare your brush

Before you start brushing your teeth, you must prepare the brush. To do this, you must charge your battery until it is full. To do this, you just need to connect your device to its charger and plug it into the mains. A few minutes later, your electric toothbrush will be fully charged.

For models that have an indicator light, you will be informed as soon as the charge has reached its peak. You can therefore disconnect your electric toothbrush, since it is finally ready for use.

Step No. 2: before brushing your teeth

The battery of your electric toothbrush is full, so it can help you get rid of waste accumulated on your teeth. But it is also important to put your machine in the condition so that it is operational for brushing.

Therefore, we ask you to moisten the brush head first. Then you put an appropriate amount of the toothpaste in it. The need to moisten your electric toothbrush is that it provides you with gentle and effective cleaning.

Step 3: using your electric toothbrush

Using a toothbrush is not complicated. In two stages, we ask you to take care of your teeth first and then your tongue.

Likewise, also consider that your mouth is subdivided into four distinct areas that you will have to visit with your electric toothbrush: lower right, lower left, upper left and upper right. Without the need to use force, you perform simple, small rotating movements on the teeth.

For some electric toothbrush models, such as our sustainable toothbrush model, they will alert you when it's time so you can change areas. According to dentists , the time to brush an area is at most thirty seconds. For all four areas, it takes at least two minutes to make them clean.

After you have finished brushing the four areas of your mouth, you can immediately take care of your gums. But at this level, you must tilt your brush by 45°, so it can reach the most difficult to reach areas for a thorough cleaning.

After brushing your teeth, you move on to cleaning your tongue. Here, it is not a question of going with force, otherwise, the brush may simply injure you. To do this, we ask you to brush it gently and delicately.

What should you do after brushing your teeth?

You have finished effectively brushing your teeth and tongue, now you can rinse your mouth and then move on to cleaning the brush head.

To rinse your mouth, it's very simple. You simply have to do it with tap water so that there is no toothpaste debris left in the gaps of the teeth. You can do this several times to effectively remove traces of toothpaste.

Once you finish rinsing your mouth, you can move on to rinsing your brush. Still very simple and easy to do, you just need to open the tap, and make sure the water pressure is strong enough. You then pass the brush under this faucet for 10 seconds. You will finally notice that your toothbrush regains its factory shine without the use of harmful products.
