Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective, does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.
The first toothbrush appeared several thousand ice ago among the peoples of North Africa, it was a stick split on one side like a panicle. In Kievan Rus, oral hygiene was carried out with oak brushes. The modern toothbrush appeared in 1850, and the electric model in 1939. Today, this personal hygiene item exists in several main varieties:
- A mechanical brush with a moving head cleans according to the same principle as a manual brush, but the result is more effective;
- Sonic is equipped with a generator that creates sound waves that move the bristles and at the same time contribute to the natural removal of dental plaque;
- Ultrasonic generates sound waves in the range of 1.6 … 1.8 MHz, which have bactericidal properties, they actively soften tartar even in hard-to-reach places. Ultrasonic brushes are the most effective.
- Electric brushes are powered by a built-in rechargeable battery that needs to be charged periodically, or alkaline batteries. The latter are the most affordable. It is also important to note the division into adult and child models, which differ in head size, bristle properties and, of course, design.
- SMART technologies have found a place in dentistry: many models of brushes are interfaced with mobile applications and suggest which area of the oral cavity needs attention.
The magazine's team of experts found out which electric-type brushes are really recommended by dentists, which ones are preferred by users of different ages, and made their own rating, which included devices of all types.
