As I was brushing my teeth the other day, it occurred to me that (other than the time in February I was stuck without my luggage in Chicago… long story) I haven't brushed my teeth with a manual toothbrush in so long that I cannot honestly remember.
That brought forth the idea of when, in February, I *was* forced to do so, how difficult it seemed and how tedious.
The photo above is of the Philips SoniCare Diamond Clean, their latest model and the one I use. However, there are other powered toothbrushes out there too. The idea for this post is really just the point that you cannot get your teeth as clean with a manual brush as you can with a powered one. Trust me on this… I'm an expert.
Quite literally, if someone broke into my home and stole my powered brush, I'd be at Target in an hour with a new one in the cart. I'm that passionate about it.
If you really want to have your teeth their cleanest and your gums their healthiest, this is a need not a want. Highly recommended!
Now, I understand that the economy isn't the best right now. I understand that these things are expensive. If you can't get one right now, I totally get that. However, I do think it behooves you to think about this post and then put on your "To Do" list to get one when circumstances allow. The point really is that even though powered toothbrushes aren't' cheap, dentistry costs even more.
When you think about it in those terms, I think it makes more sense. I'm completely convinced that if you try a powered brush for a while, you will never want to go back. I know I sure wouldn't!
