Truthfully, this isn’t much of a battle. The electric toothbrush wins. They are proven to clean teeth more thoroughly and keep you from brushing too hard when you let the brush do the work for you (a problem many people do not know even exists). They also are easier to use, help time your brushing to the proper duration, and even help you use less toothpaste because the toothbrush heads are smaller. The only advantages that manual toothbrushes have are that they are cheaper and they can be more portable. However, currently we have a $20 mail-in rebate on the Oral B electric toothbrush at our office and we price our preferred Oral B electric toothbrushes so that our patients get the advantage of our savings. So for everyone who already has an electric toothbrush, keep using it! For people who do not have an electric toothbrush, please consider getting one. Your teeth and gums will thank you.

Welcome to the new Davidson Family Dentistry blog. We hope to have it be a fun mix of educational and enlightening material for everyone. Many of the planned topics are answers to common questions that we receive from patients in the chair or when we visit with people. These we will attempt to discuss in lay terms and not as a scholarly presentation. Occasionally, we will add updates about our office and our staff so that you are able to know us better. Another goal is to have each entry be only a few paragraphs in length.
Our blog authors will vary. All will be written by one of the members of the Davidson Family Dentistry team. We do not plan to purchase blog entries as we have seen many dental offices do. All entries will be viewed by the management at Davidson Family Dentistry prior to being published and if they concern a dental topic will have a dentist’s or dental hygienist’s prior review. The current thought is to create a blog entry a couple of times a month.
If you have ideas for us or if a blog entry creates further questions in your mind, please don’t hesitate to contact us. As in all we do, our motto of “Quality Dentistry, Affordable Service and Compassionate Care” is the reason behind our actions.
Making smiles happen,
The Davidson Team
