Dental care is very important and one’s overall health and well being. We recommend you come see the doctors at Starshine Dentistry once every six months to help prevent gum disease and cavities. We have two convenient locations. Many people suffer from dental disease due to lack of knowledge, fear and not visiting a dentist regularly. The doctors at Starshine Dentistry are happy to guide you to healthy teeth and gums. A great tool for any patient is an electric toothbrush!
Sonicare Professional Electric Toothbrushes are an excellent choice!
Today many people prefer electric toothbrushes (Sonicare) as they offer the ability to brush your teeth 31,000 strokes per minute! They also offer many conveniences like a two minute timer and a charge life of up to ten days. The Sonicare Professional Sonic toothbrush removes 6X more plaque, helps maintain white teeth and improves gum health 100% better than a manual toothbrush. Many patients who suffer from arthritis and dexterity issues find electric toothbrushes easier to hold and use. They are a great option for kids and can really help keep braces clean! The doctors at Starshine Dentistry highly recommend the Sonicare Professional EasyClean toothbrush, the professional version can only be found at your dentist office.
Manual toothbrushes are still a good option!
Good oral hygiene can still be maintained using a manual toothbrush as well. Dr. Alexander recommends and soft bristled brush with an average size head. Change your toothbrush every 3 months and brush at least twice a day. Don’t forget to floss at least once a day, flossing is just as important as brushing in helping to prevent gum disease and decay!
