oral b vitality i love it

There's not much evidence that electric toothbrushes are better than manual toothbrushes. But it's very clear that they're not worse. In the case of the ones with timers, their biggest benefit is probably just getting you to brush as long as you should (two or three minutes). There is some evidence that electric toothbrushes that spin in both directions, like some made by Oral-B, are better than manual brushes. My dentist recommended a two-speed electric toothbrush. The faster speed is for your teeth, the slower speed is for your gums. You need to be gentle with your gums.

Yes, it is safe to use electric toothbrush with braces. But manual toothbrushes will also work well with braces, the most important thing is how you use it, not what you use.

An electric toothbrush should have no adverse effect on your veneers. If your veneers come off, there is something wrong with either the veneer, the adhesive used to attach the veneer to the tooth, or the tooth itself.

Sonicare electric toothbrush are sold in your local stores. You can also ask your dentist if he or she can provide you free Sonicare electric toothbrush. You can also use your Medicare or free shopping coupons to buy one.
