Q.

Electric toothbrush

What is the possibility of your teeth ''loosening'' over a long period of time when using a professional electric toothbrush?

Does a professional electric toothbrush assist in receding your gum line? (also over a long period of time e.g. 10years +)

any brush can cause gu mdamage if used incorrectly however it is very unlikely to cause loosening of your teeth. This is more likely due to gum disease
