Why the ‘jury is out’ on which toothbrush is most effective
The Vice President of the Australian Dental Association Victorian Branch says the jury is out on whether an electric toothbrush is more effective than a manual one.
It comes after Tom Elliott saw a study that said manual brushing was more effective.
“Whenever you find one person or one group saying it’s a benefit, you’ll find another that says it isn’t,” Dr Warren Shnider said.
He said one thing was beyond dispute.
“The best toothbrush is the one that goes in your mouth, twice a day,” he said.
He also shared his thoughts on mouth washes and flossing.
