Compared with ordinary toothbrushes, electric toothbrushes are becoming more and more popular. It is said that electric toothbrushes have strong cleaning ability, but they are afraid that such strong cleaning ability will destroy the normal protective layer of teeth. So can use electric toothbrush for a long time lead to tooth sensitivity?
It's an interesting idea, and it makes logical sense: "Teeth are sensitive after wear, and electric toothbrushes are better at cleaning, so is it possible that excessive use of electric toothbrushes will make you sensitive?" First, just to be clear, there is no protective coating on the surface of the teeth. A lot of people are worried about cleaning teeth will destroy the protective film? Will brushing your teeth destroy it? Neither, because there is no such a good film. Teeth may have a bacterial membrane, called plaque, which is harmful to teeth. Dentists are fighting this membrane, and teeth at their best are clean. So, electric toothbrushes are more efficient, but are there any safety risks?
The conclusion is that numerous studies over the past two decades have shown that clockwork rotary electric toothbrushes are as safe as manual toothbrushes and do not cause any clinical problems with teeth or gums. Therefore, strong cleaning ability does not equate to greater wear and tear on the teeth, which will not cause additional tooth sensitivity. But do not rule out such a situation, the past has been using manual toothbrush, brush is not clean, there are a lot of bacteria on the teeth soft scale, just started to use electric toothbrush, all of a sudden these dirty things are brushed off, a little not adapt to this fresh, mistaken for tooth sensitivity. This "sensitivity" will recover and adapt after a while.
Improper cleaning method will cause exposure of dentin, loss of teeth, etc., so that the teeth are very sensitive to pressure, sweet food, temperature and other stimuli, and also affect the health of dental nerve.
Here are some tips on how to use an electric toothbrush correctly:
1. Choice of toothpaste: Because the frequency of electric toothbrush brushing is much higher than manual toothbrush, so we try to choose very fine particles, relatively soft toothpaste to use, to avoid excessive friction on the teeth and gums caused permanent damage. Especially avoid toothpaste with scrub particles.
2. Correct brushing steps: First clean the outside of the teeth. Be careful to hold the brush horizontally along the gum line and hold it on each tooth for a few seconds. Then clean the inner side of the teeth, move along the inner side of the teeth, and stay more in the inner side and gap of the lower front teeth, which are easy to form dental stones; Next, clean the chewing surfaces of the teeth, again for a few seconds; Finally, clean the back of the rear molar, where bacteria are most likely to accumulate and can linger for a long time - a little. General electric toothbrushes have a timing function, brushing time is best for 2 minutes.
3. When using an electric toothbrush, there is no need to manually circle the brush. Many people are used to manually circle the brush when using an electric toothbrush, which will affect the cleaning ability of the electric toothbrush itself. Just gently press the head of the brush against the surface of the teeth. Brushing vigorously can cause serious damage to the gums. My high school monitor, a special love beautiful girl, toothbrush feel super hard brush to quickly, his teeth and gums all brush off, fill the tooth spent tens of thousands of.
