Tips for Choosing the Right Toothbrush

Choosing the Right ToothbrushA toothbrush is an important factor in preventing dental disease, especially gum problems. Therefore the purchaser should be quite specific when going into the shop. The dentist will tell you which brush is suitable for you. Write it down and ask for it. Do not be fooled off with something else ‘almost the same or try somewhere else!

Tips for choosing the right toothbrush

  • Bristles are the most important consideration when buying a toothbrush. Choose soft nylon bristles, which will last long and not hurt gums even after vigorous brushing.
  • It’s important that your toothbrush can reach all the surfaces of your teeth. So a brush with a smaller head is generally better than one with a larger head. Whether you choose a toothbrush with a straight handle or not depends on the shape of your mouth and how easily you can manipulate the brush. It’s important to change your toothbrush regularly -at least every three months. Once the bristles become worn out of shape, they are much less efficient at plaque removal.
  • Keep in mind that there is no evidence that electronic toothbrushes work more effectively than conventional ones. However, people who are handicapped or who wear braces may prefer them.
