Electric Toothbrush vs. Manual – What’s the Verdict?

Is it time to replace your old toothbrush with a new one? Before you head out to purchase the same old, we need you to pause and think. If your gums still bleed and ache, if the plaque on your teeth never goes away, if you suffer from bad breath, maybe it’s time for a little change.

If you are someone who has never given a second thought to electric toothbrushes or is on the fence between the two types of brushes, here’s a comparison to help you make a more informed decision.


The foremost purpose of toothbrushes is to remove plaque, so it doesn’t build up and cause permanent damage to our teeth.  Plaque is removed using a toothbrush when it moves against the teeth. With a manual toothbrush, the movement is limited, whereas, with an electric toothbrush, the vibrations cause numerous micro-movements without tiring you up and remove plaque more effectively.

LBailar Electric Toothbrush powerfully delivers 45,000 sonic vibrations, removing plaque from the teeth a lot more effectively than a manual toothbrush. What’s more is that it has a long-lasting rechargeable battery, so you don’t have to worry about dying batteries when brushing your teeth meticulously.


Gingivitis is one of the most common dental diseases. And electric toothbrushes are found to help with it. A study conducted in 2014 tested the effectiveness of electric toothbrushes by performing 56 clinical trials on 5000 test subjects. It was concluded that there was a 6% reduction in gingivitis in subjects who used electric toothbrushes for three months and a further 11% reduction with more than three months of usage.

For those who struggle with gum disease or wish to avoid it, LBailar’s Flosser Electric Toothbrush is a perfect choice, as it combines brushing and flossing. The flosser gets into hard-to-reach spaces between teeth and gums and deep cleans the oral captivity. This also ensures no bad breath and the teeth remain healthy and strong.


When it came to price, manual brushes used to be preferred for their low cost compared to electric brushes that required purchasing brush heads every three months.

However, things changed when LBailar introduced Electric Toothbrushes. These come with six spare heads and rechargeable batteries, which make them last for a long time. This makes electric toothbrushes cheaper in the long run, and you get complete value for money.

The Verdict

In the battle between manual and electric toothbrushes, the latter wins hands down. It isn’t just a theoretical win, either. A research study conducted over 11 years to study the effectiveness of electric toothbrushes concluded that when it comes to oral health and hygiene, electric toothbrushes are superior. The more advance and convenient your electric toothbrush are, the better.
