We’ve all been there. We’re sat at the hottest restaurant in town, eating the most fabulous food with the best company. After the dessert is finished, there’s a feeling of satisfaction, but also the niggling feeling that something’s not right. Is it the stomach? No. Is it a tinge of regret after binging on a fatty dessert? Not really. It’s our teeth. Before the meal, they were clean and fresh feeling. Now, they feel horrible and dirty.
So, what are the options?
Use a toothpick? Doesn’t work too well. Head to the bathroom for a quick brush? Getting closer, but not quite. Head to the bathroom for a quick brush with an electric toothbrush? Now we’re getting somewhere and pretty soon, you’ll regain that clean and fresh feeling.
This article will give reasons why every fashionista should carry the said commodity in their bags to combat dirty teeth, food stains, and bad breath.
Why they are better than regular toothbrushes
Plaque is the enemy of good dental hygiene. It causes tooth decay and gum disease, and it can also cause bad breath causing bacteria to grow inside the mouth.
According to various research carried out by trustworthy organizations, regular toothbrushes only remove about 50% of the plaque in the mouth while brushing. Their electronic counterparts, however, remove as much as 80%, greatly reducing the chances of tooth decay, gum disease, and halitosis.
They also have some other benefits.
Because they’re specially designed to get in to all the tiny spaces between your teeth and your gums, they’re able to remove tiny food particles from the insides of your mouth.
Most of the said cleaning commodities come with ‘whitening’ modes, too, which do a great job of removing stains caused by tea, coffee, cigarettes, and other staining agents. Combined with ‘whitening’ toothpaste, a good electric toothbrush will make your teeth whiter and better looking than ever before.
Portability and battery life
In the past, the said teeth-cleaning items used to be heavy and difficult to use. They also had to be charged often.
Modern ones are very different
Nowadays, many of them are designed to be lightweight, small, and portable. They can easily fit into any bag.
Also, a myriad of manufacturers have also worked hard at improving battery life. In fact, many units last for several weeks before needing a charge.
Electric toothbrushes are better than regular toothbrushes in virtually every way. They do a better job of removing plaque and bad breath causing bacteria from the mouth, especially the small areas between the teeth and gums where small pieces of food can get trapped.
So, if you are a bona fide fashionista, make sure to carry one in your bag in the future. You never know when it’ll come in handy.
