Having proper tools are necessary to completing a job quickly and completely. This is especially true when choosing a toothbrush.
You may feel overwhelmed with the hundreds of choices at your local drugstore. The most important factor is you. Is it a toothbrush you enjoy using? If you are using a brush that isn’t comfortable or doesn’t fit your mouth well, you probably won’t brush as often as you ought.
Here is what to look for when choosing a toothbrush:
- Extra Soft or Soft Bristles
- Small, Rounded Head
- Polished Bristles
An electric toothbrush may be equally or slightly more effective at removing debris than a manual toothbrush. A regular toothbrush can perform the similarly. With either a manual or electric, brush for at least 2 minutes.
Electric toothbrushes are good for children. To teach your children to be pro-active in their dental health, train with a regular toothbrush. Then move to an electric toothbrush. This can make up for their lack of ability.
The sonic toothbrush is the top of the line of electric toothbrushes. The intense speed at which the bristles shake make it possible for the toothbrush to clean beyond where the tips of bristles touch. A claim that no other toothbrush can make.
Your toothbrush is not designed for deep cleaning. Only your dentist has the proper tools for that. Click here to schedule your next cleaning.
