Electric toothbrushes are better. I have receding gums from over brushing (no cavities ever!) with medium toothbrushes and was recommended by a dentist to use only a soft bristle brush, or better get an electric toothbrush. I believe it has helped to slow or even stop my gums from receding more.Yes there is some wear on enamel from modern toothbrushes. Not really noticeable even over decades if you're using soft ones. Hard bristle is noticeable. Both dentists I've used in the last 2 decades have been adamant that only soft bristle should be used.
I'm not sure how electric toothbrushes like Oral B effect teeth.
