1- You don't need to blow all your money on an expensive brush. Most brushes have all the necessary features and cost around £40.
2- If you have more than one person in the house using an electric brush you only need to buy 1 motor and change the heads!
3- Make sure it's rechargeable, we don't want to be running round looking for batteries in the morning rush.

Limit the sugar you eat as sugar is what bacteria in the mouth turns into acid which causes dental decay. Be mindful of foods like raisins and peanut butter that stick to your teeth. If you feel like eating something sugary, try to limit it at meal times, so breakfast, lunch or dinner. This means that the number of acid attacks on your teeth throughout the day is reduced. For example, eating a small bag of sweets in one go is better than eating it slowly throughout the day.
Try to mouthwash straight after eating as this neutralises the acid. Brush at least 30 minutes after eating to avoid brushing the acid into your teeth. Chewing sugar free gum after meals can also help to stimulate saliva flow which also neutralises the acid.
Importantly, visiting the dentist regularly along with good hygiene and dietary habits will prevent dental problems in the future.
