Stocking Stuffers for the Holidays

December 09, 2014 | Posted in Education

Electric or power toothbrushes are great stocking stuffers!!  They can help do the work for you and have some important advantages.  Electric toothbrushes can help personalize your brushing experience: 
 
·They have adjustable power levels that can aid in gentle brushing.  Some electric toothbrushes will even stop if too much pressure is applied.
 
·Most electric toothbrushes have built in timers telling us to keep brushing so we brush a full two minutes each time. 
 
·Electric toothbrushes make brushing easier for someone with limited dexterity and more fun for kids.
 
Talk to your registered dental hygienist to see if an electric toothbrush is right for you and how to use it effectively.  Call us at the Rideau Dental Centre at 613-230-7475.
