A manual toothbrush can save you up to $1.20 a year, according to a new study from the American Academy of Dental Research.
That’s about 30% less than the cost of a comparable toothbrush, and it could also save you from costly dental visits.
The study, published Tuesday in the Journal of Dentistry and Oral Epidemiology, examined the benefits of a toothbrush versus a regular toothbrush.
It found that a manual toothpaste is nearly twice as effective at removing plaque than a regular brush.
Manual brushing is usually recommended for kids ages 4 and up, because it can be used on smaller teeth that don’t require as much brushing.
“The reason we recommend manual brushing is because we know that plaque can be very, very stubborn,” said Dr. James A. MacKinnon, professor of dentistry at the University of California, San Diego and author of the study.
“We know that for people who have a more difficult tooth, the more effort and effort that goes into brushing the harder plaque is going to be.”
Manual brushing reduces the amount of plaque on your teeth by reducing the amount that is absorbed by the brush.
But it also takes longer to break down plaque than other methods of removing it, which means that you may need to use a different toothbrush when brushing your child.
“For kids with larger teeth, a regular dental brush is probably the way to go,” said MacKunnen.
“It’s a lot easier and it takes less effort.
For kids with smaller teeth, we really want to try manual brushing.”
It’s also worth noting that manual brushing requires less care than a conventional toothbrush does.
“You don’t need to do anything,” MacKinnen said.
“There’s nothing else to do with the brush, you just get it ready to go.
There’s no scrubbing.
The toothbrush is just going to come right out and you’re done.”
A manual brush that has a higher cleaning capacity will last longer than a manual one, MacKunkson said.
Mackunnen said that the study didn’t look at how often a toothpaste should be used or how often it was changed.
But the study found that people who brush their children less often had more plaque in their teeth.
And children who used a tooth brush that didn’t change frequently had the lowest amount of tooth decay.
“That’s really a surprise to us,” Mackunksen said, because most kids brush at least once a day.
“They probably use it about three or four times a week.
So that’s a good sign that we’re not just doing it once a week or once a month.”
MacKinnsons findings could help dentists decide whether or not to recommend manual teethbrushes.
The findings were based on data from a study of 6,000 people who had been evaluated in a medical center for gum disease and other conditions.
The data also included information about people who were not enrolled in the study, including age, gender, and education.
The researchers also looked at people who didn’t have any dental issues, and those who didn, the study said.
