The sonicare toothbrush has been shown to be 40% more effective in removing plaque than a manual toothbrush, 82% better in removing plaque from interproximal areas, and to reverse gingivitis. In vitro studies have examined the ability of the sonicare toothbrush to remove plaque bacteria beyond the reach of the bristles. The sonicare toothbrush has also been shown to produce significantly less dentin wear in vitro than another leading power toothbrush. This article reviews both in vivo and in vitro studies that illustrate the efficacy of the sonicare toothbrush in improving oral health.
