Yes you can use electric toothbrush.2 minute timer is fixed in it which helps in proper brushing for two minutes if you are not able to maintain through manual toothbrush. There are no side effects. Else there are not much difference and both help in plaque removal.

You have total control over toothbrush in manual method, so I think it's preferable. After proper scaling and polishing, you can maintain cleanliness with proper brushing habits.
Next Steps
consult doctor for proper guidance
Health Tips

See using both manual or electric tooth brush has almost equal efficiency to remove plague ,manual toothbrush if use with proper tooth brushing technique will give equal results as electric tooth brush one ,moreover electric one is recommended for special patient (handicapped /mentally challenged) who can’t brush manually properly
Health Tips
Maintain oral hygiene by brushing properly two times a day Mouthwash also can be used
