Looking for a perfect present? Electric toothbrushes make excellent gifts for both adults and children. Give the gift of oral health this season.

During the holidays, we often indulge by eating tasty sweet treats and desserts at festive celebrations. Yet, as most know, sugar has a significant role in tooth decay. To help prevent cavities, consider an electric toothbrush.

There are many benefits to an electric toothbrush:

  • Effectively removes more plaque than a manual toothbrush.
  • Loosens food particles and plaque, while gently massaging the gums.
  • Cleans teeth in a more consistent manner-leaving teeth feeling like your hygienist just cleaned them.
  • Helps stop bad breath.
  • Reduces gingivitis.
  • With numerous styles of electric toothbrushes available, talk with your family dentist about their recommendation to help you find the perfect one. The ADA Council on Scientific Affairs has approved many styles which can be found on its website: The ADA gives the seal of approval for products it deems safe and effective in the removal of plaque and the reduction and prevention of gingivitis.

    Children especially benefit from an electric toothbrush-the buzzing, vibrating novelty aids in kids' tolerance of parents helping them brush or brushing themselves. And like manual counterpart, many kid-friendly electric toothbrushes feature popular cartoon characters.
