If you need a new toothbrush, you may want to consider an electric toothbrush. Studies show they may do a slightly better job at removing plaque than manual brushes. They also come with handy features like timers that help you brush for a full two minutes. In particular, they work well for people with arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and similar mobility issues. That said, the important thing is to get a brush you like – manual or electric – and make sure it has soft bristles. Hard bristles can actually damage your tooth enamel.
