Throughout the years of living with a progressive neurological disorder. I've come to find that brushing my teeth adequately has become more challenging with declining dexterity.
By stabilizing my elbows on the counter, I can evenly distribute the toothpaste onto the toothbrush. I can get the toothbrush in my mouth, but I just do not move fast enough to brush my teeth effectively.
A few years ago I tried the Phillips Sonicare electric toothbrush which perfectly fit my needs!
After doing the 2 minute interval brushing it feels as if you’ve been to the dentist for a deep and thorough cleaning. This toothbrush moves at much faster speed than I ever could manually.
The toothbrush only needs to be charged a few times a month. The manufacturer suggests replacing the brush tip monthly but that can become costly when replacement toothbrush heads can be pretty pricey. Each tip comes with an individual cover for the bristles.
This toothbrush has a range of models and features, check them out here philips sonicare toothbrushes.
Using this toothbrush will help maintain your teeth in top shape, and still allow you to feel independence regardless of your dexterity issues.
