Choosing The Right Toothbrush

April 16, 2013

2brushNot all toothbrushes are the same.

So where do you start in choosing a toothbrush? There are a lot of choices out there when it comes to purchasing a toothbrush, which makes it difficult to know what to look for. The best way to get started is to ask Dr Hayner at your next visit what is best for you personally, but until then here is a quick reference:

  • Small brush head and well-designed bristles: A smaller brush head and a bristle design  can help you to get to the hard-to-reach places of your mouth.
  • Soft bristles: Softer bristles are best – they are more gentle on your teeth and gums.
  • Comfortable handle: Most toothbrushes have non-slip grips which make them easy to use even if wet.

 

Remember: you need to replace your toothbrush about every three months.  This helps  maintain a high level of oral hygiene.  Research even shows a new toothbrush can remove up to 30% more plaque than one that’s three months old!
