A number of studies have been conducted comparing the effectiveness of manual brushes as opposed to electric brushes.
These studies conclude that, in general, electric brushes are more efficient in controlling plaque than manual brushes. Even though you can brush well with a regular hand brush, but an electric brush makes the task easier and more effective.
Also, some electric brushes (Sonicare) produce sonic vibrations that are difficult to mimic with a hand brush! Other electric brushes like Oral-B and Rotadent have small heads that help you access hard-to-reach areas of your mouth. This aspect is more important when you are talking about someone with orthodontic braces or has a history of gum disease.
