Electric toothbrushes clean teeth and gums much better than a manual toothbrush, according to the findings of a 2019 study.

Scientists found that people who use an electric toothbrush have healthier gums, less tooth decay  and also keep their teeth for longer, compared with those who use a manual toothbrush.

Electric toothbrushes, especially those with heads that rotate in both directions, or 'oscillating' heads, are really effective at removing plaque. This helps keep tooth decay and gum disease at bay.

Further findings from the Journal of Clinical Periodontology, found that electric toothbrushes resulted in 22% less gum recession and 18% less tooth decay over the 11-year period.
