Batteries should be discharged before recharging but we often find that as the battery runs down electric toothbrushes get slower and slower.
At this speed, it is simply not being efficient and therefore we ask our patients to regularly charge up the toothbrush.
Battery operated toothbrushes are not recommended as we find they are not cost-effective at all and a manual toothbrush with a good technique would be better.
I and my wife have been extremely impressed with the way that Seetal and her team have been coping with the dental practice at this difficult time.
During the lockdown period I lost part of a tooth and my wife also needed some treatment, and although these weren’t emergencies, the practice arranged to see us both shortly after they were open. In my case this involved an inspection and eventually the measuring and fitting of a crown. Everything was carried out impeccably – the car parking arrangements, calling us in when everything was ready, the sanitation arrangements, and the actual treatment. Throughout everything was carried out in a highly professional manner and we were very impressed.
