Mission Viejo Dentist, Dr. Kurt Schneider frequently warns his patients to be careful when using electric toothbrushes. During his in-depth cleaning appointments, he can typically tell whether or not patients are using electric toothbrushes. While these toothbrushes can do a great job of keeping your teeth sparkling clean, they can also potentially damage your teeth and gums. Because these toothbrushes are so powerful, patients can harm their gums by brushing too long and too vigorously. Using a manual toothbrush allows you to better manage your tooth brushing regimen. Manual toothbrushes allow you to apply sufficient pressure to your teeth and gums, without going overboard.
If you are looking for a Mission Viejo Dentist who can take a look at your mouth to determine if you have any damage, due to an electric toothbrush, feel free to give Dr. Kurt Schneider a call, today. He can be reached at 949-380-0700, or online at www.drkschneider.com.
