What Type of Toothbrush Should I Choose?

Toothbrushes in Glass, How to Choose?With new brands and styles of toothbrushes coming on the market every day, choosing the right toothbrush for you can get confusing.

•  Choose a toothbrush with soft or extra soft bristles only. Firmer bristles put too much wear on the gums and can cause the gumline to recede, or expose the root surfaces of the teeth.
•  Look for a brush with a smaller, compact head. These can better reach hard to access areas, like the back teeth.
•  For those who have difficulty brushing their teeth or have limited manual dexterity, a powered toothbrush might be the ideal solution. These do most of the work for you, and may do a better job than manual brushing.
•  Regarding other details such as bristle style, shape of the head, or the style of the handle, simply choose what feels the most comfortable to you. The best toothbrush is the one you will actually use!

Regardless of what type of toothbrush you choose be sure to replace it every 3 months or whenever you see wear on the bristles, whichever comes first. Also be sure to replace your brush every time you have a cold or other contagious illness as germs can live on the bristles and lead to reinfection. (The same rule applies to replaceable heads on powered brushes.)
