How Long Does An Electric Toothbrush Last?

Electric toothbrushes are often recommended for improved dental hygiene. Brushing with an electric toothbrush is a quick and easy way to help keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy. But they’re more expensive than a regular toothbrush, and the replacement brush heads can be pricey, too. However, your electric toothbrush will last for longer if you handle it properly. Read our blog post to see how you can care for your electric toothbrush:

Electric Toothbrush Battery Life

When you purchase an electric toothbrush, you can choose between a battery powered toothbrush and a chargeable one. If you have an electric toothbrush that needs to be charged, there are a few things you can do to keep your battery in good working order:

  • Waiting until your battery is low on charge is one way to keep it safe, as charging it when it still has a lot of power will overuse and drain it. 
  • Exercising them past the charging process will result in a decrease in their lifetime. 
  • Rate for the specified amount of time or until the device indicates that it is fully charged. 
  • Short charges on a regular basis will shorten the battery's life.
  • When you're not using your toothbrush, turn it off to conserve energy and extend its life.

How Long Do Brush Heads Last

Brush heads should be adjusted every 2-3 months to avoid plaque build-up in the bristles and to keep the brush head from fraying or being weakened to the point that it becomes less reliable, which can affect your gums and teeth. You can read more about this here.

Is Electric Better Than Manual?

Electric toothbrushes are more costly than manual toothbrushes, but they do a great job of brushing your gums and teeth. Electric toothbrushes also have features that manual toothbrushes don't, such as built-in timers and timed pulses to remind you to brush different parts of your mouth at different times.

Brushing your teeth with a manual toothbrush necessitates more effort than brushing with an electric toothbrush; however, the electric toothbrush can do much of the work for you, making it easier to get a thorough clean.

Manual toothbrushes last around 2-3 months, while electric toothbrushes can last up to 5 years if toothbrush heads are replaced on a regular basis. Some businesses have developed their own refill plans for their clients, allowing them to customize when their brush heads and oral care items will be shipped.

Do Electric Toothbrushes Damage Teeth?

Brushing your teeth and gums correctly can ensure their optimal health, but brushing too hard with any toothbrush can cause long-term harm such as tooth enamel erosion and receding gums. When you use your electric toothbrush right, you can avoid damaging your teeth and keep your mouth clean.

How To Store Electric Toothbrushes

When you store a toothbrush in a drawer or cupboard, the air circulation is reduced, allowing bacteria to grow. When a toothbrush reaches its full charge, it will automatically stop charging. When traveling with an electric toothbrush, storing it in a case protects it and reduces the risk of it breaking or being harmed.

You should keep your electric toothbrush upright and on a stand with plenty of airflow. You may also keep your toothbrush charged when not in use; check to see if your toothbrush has an automatic sensor to prevent it from overcharging.
