“Best Electric Toothbrush for Braces.” electricteeth.co.ok. Accessed October 22nd, 2017


Launched in 2015, www.electricteeth.co.uk has been founded on the principle of giving genuine, honest feedback on products that exist within the dental and oral health industry, along with news and other useful guides as to how anyone can improve their oral hygiene or be served better by products that exist on the market.They are not dentist or medical professionals, just individuals who want to give readers the information and answers to questions they may not have found elsewhere. In the article itself, it talks about the best electric toothbrushes for braces, as well as the best manual brush and best battery brush. They talk about the research they’ve done and tries to inform the reader on which they should choose. I believe we can use this article to help us get a better understanding on what types of toothbrushes are more suitable for people with braces and why. This can help us with developing our 3D model of one.

The European Journal of Paediatric Dentistry is the official publication of the Italian Society of Paediatric Dentistry. Their aim is to promote research in all aspects of dentistry related to children, including interceptive orthodontics and studies on children and young adults with special needs, The journal focuses on clinical and basic science research and all papers are reviewed by at least two international reviewers who are known to have an interest or expertise in the field covered by the paper. This paper does research on whether electronic toothbrushes are more effective than manual toothbrushes. Reading this article can help our group determine which route to go when designing our toothbrush using the 3D printer, manual or electronic?
