How to Use a Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush

  Amazing Smiles Team   Estimate Reading Time: 3 minutes

Using a rechargeable Electric Toothbrush can be a great way to get your children or you interested in brushing their teeth. Most can be used with interchangeable coloured heads so that the entire family can use the same brush.

Rechargeable electric toothbrushes are easy to use, which is part of their appeal. And although a rechargeable electric toothbrush costs more than a manual toothbrush, it may be worth it if your child (or you) is more enthusiastic about using it.

To use a rechargeable electric toothbrush, just place a pea sized amount of toothpaste on the brush head and hold the brush at a 45-degree angle, just as you would a manual toothbrush. Then turn on the rechargeable electric brush and move the brush from tooth to tooth.

Electric Toothbrush

The smaller heads of most rechargeable electric toothbrushes usually brush about one tooth at a time, depending on the size of your teeth. Guide the electric brush along the front surfaces, back surfaces, and chewing surfaces of each tooth.

Even with a rechargeable electric toothbrush, you should brush your teeth for at least two minutes to ensure that you’ve cleaned each tooth. A self-timer will vibrate the brush differently when completed.

When you’ve finished brushing, rinse the brush head with water and allow it to dry.
