Good oral hygiene is an essential part of our overall health; It keeps us feeling fresh, and gives our confidence an extra boost. The easiest way to support oral health is to brush your teeth in the morning and before bed. On top of that, using the right tools and brushing techniques will help keep your mouth clean and free of germs that cause diseases. One of the best tools on the market to ensure good oral hygiene is an electric toothbrush because it is efficient, gentle and thorough.
Most electric toothbrushes come with several notable features, such as a built-in 2 minute timer. Dental professionals recommend brushing your teeth for two minutes, at least twice a day. Less than that, and you will not get rid of all the harmful plaque on your teeth, while brushing for more than two minutes runs the risk of wearing out your protective enamel and hurting your gums. Having a built-in timer will help you meet that target every time.
The standard 2 minute timer on an electric toothbrush is highly convenient as it starts when you switch on the brush. Different models have their own ways of letting you know the time is up. Some shut off or pause automatically, while others change sound. More advanced models come with lights that illuminate or flash to signal that the 2 minutes are over.
In addition to the 2 minute timer, most modern models come with a secondary timer within the 2 minutes. It sends you alerts every 30 seconds (interval timer) to ensure that you cover all the parts of your mouth when brushing – the top, bottom, left and right sides. Most brushes tell you to switch sections by vibrating.
Premium electric toothbrushes are also equipped with the latest technology, like Bluetooth smart connectivity. This gives you more flexibility and offers tips on how to enhance your brushing skills. The connected device usually displays the timer, along with other visual graphics, such as mouth maps for the interval timer, to guide you through every detail.
The average price among the 11 electric toothbrushes with timers represented in our comparison is £120. The cheapest model costs £18, and the most expensive costs £295.
