Not all toothbrushes are made equal.
Investing in the right toothbrush can do wonders for your oral health and overall well-being.
Here are some factors to consider in choosing the right toothbrush:
SIZE AND STYLE
Make sure your toothbrush works for your mouth shape. Some mouths are wider or narrower than others, so you need a toothbrush that will work for your mouth and teeth.
Choose a toothbrush that can reach your molars comfortably, and that with an appropriate sized handle. If you have a narrow, long mouth, get a toothbrush with a wider handle and a good grip.
Also keep in mind that the more plastic bristles you see, the better its cleaning action.
Always check the label and make sure your toothbrush has a seal from the American Dental Association (ADA). These toothbrushes have been quality checked for efficiency and safety.
Toothbrushes can come in varying bristle strengths, but it is recommended you get one with soft bristles. Soft bristles are less taxing on your gums and tooth enamel.
Are there special features you are looking for in a toothbrush?
You may have certain oral health issues that need to be addressed with certain special toothbrush features, such as a tongue cleaner for bad breath. If you’re environmentally conscious, you might want to get a toothbrush made from organic materials that are easily recyclable.
Also, consider if you prefer using a manual toothbrush or an electronic toothbrush. The main benefit of an electronic toothbrush is it can give a deeper clean. However, these electronic toothbrushes usually come with hefty price tags and the heads need to be replaced every 3-4 months.
Commit to a toothbrush that you are comfortable using and that you are comfortable spending on.
