Q: My husband, who never met a gadget he didn't like, wants our family to switch from regular toothbrushes to electric ones. He insists it's worth the cost because electric toothbrushes do a better job. Is he right, or is this just an excuse for another fun toy? A: Can it be both? Research in the last few years shows that your gadget-loving spouse is right -- electric toothbrushes do have an edge over the muscle-powered variety when it comes to keeping plaque and gingivitis at bay.
