Ease of Use
It goes without saying that a power toothbrushes offer a convenience factor that manual brushes do not. A manual tooth brush requires manual action back and forth along your teeth; and many people do not brush their teeth in the correct manner. Power toothbrushes take all of the manual action and guess work out of brushing. You can always feel comfortable that your teeth are getting a thorough cleaning every time you brush.
Power tooth brushes are full of features to make them even easier to use. Most come with a charging holder that conveniently sits on the counter and charges them when they are not in use. They generally come with a full array of features including: interchangeable heads with varying bristle stiffness, varying brushing modes for sensitive teeth and gum messaging action, pressure sensors to signal when you are brushing too hard, and digital reminders of when you need to change your head.
