Which Toothbrush Wins The Fight?

It’s a ongoing argument with no proven facts of which toothbrush is more beneficial. Is it the Traditional or electric toothbrush that does a better job?  We know the key differences between electric and traditional toothbrushes. We know traditional is the most commonly used and are manual.  W know that electrical is battery operated and are advertised to work better, but is it true?

Electric Pro’s:
  • Faster brush
  • Harder brush
  • Cost more than traditional
Con’s:
  • More money than traditional
  • Heavy
  • Have to buy batteries
  • Buildup on inside
