Choosing the right toothbrush is an individual decision. To maintain the best oral hygiene it is recommended to replace your toothbrush regularly. A new toothbrush will increase your ability to clean your teeth more efficiently and remove more plaque buildup.
The basics points to consider when replacing your toothbrush are:
1. A Comfortable Handle
Choosing a brush with a comfortable handle will allow you to handle your brush more securely and promote proper use. Be sure the handle is long enough to allow access to the back part of your mouth. In order to not injure or hurt your gums and teeth a soft bristle toothbrush is recommended.
2. Soft Bristles
The soft bristles will allow you to brush your gum line as well in a safe manner.
3. A Small Brush Head
The small brush head will allow you to clean certain hard to reach areas that could cause issues in the future.
4. Various Angles of Bristles
The various angles of the bristles is important to allow the brush to form and get in between your teeth and form to each tooth shape.
5. Tested and Approved
Looking for a seal of approval from the dental industry will ensure the quality, effectiveness, and safety of your toothbrush.
When choosing the best toothbrush for your child, be sure to choose a child-sized toothbrush. It will insure that your child will be able to navigate the brush properly and handle the toothbrush easily with convenient grip for children. For younger children the addition of a cute character may instill more brushing interest in your child.
Remember to see your dentist if you have any other concerns. Replacement of your toothbrush is generally recommended every 3 months. Removing plaque and food from our teeth by brushing with the proper brush will help to keep your teeth healthy and in great condition.
Keeping your overall health in great condition starts in your mouth – with your teeth and gums.back
