Sometimes it becomes confusing to select the right toothbrush among so many toothbrushes available in the market. Here is a quick guide for you to selectthe right tooth brush:

  1. Most Dental professionals agree that a soft bristled toothbrush is best for removing plaque and debris from your teeth without irritating your gums or contributing to a receding gum line. Hard bristles can be very abrasive, leading to enamel abrasion and gum damage leading to permanent sensitivity.
  2. Brushes with small head are preferable since they can reach all the areas of mouth as compared to brushes with large head.
  3. Electric tooth brush is preferred if you have limited dexterity.
  4. Replace your toothbrush after every 3 months or when the bristles show signs of wear.
  5. Replace your toothbrush after viral or bacterial illness because bacteria and viruses harbor on toothbrush bristles, potentially leading to infection.
  6. Brush your teeth for at least 2-3 minutes at a time, twice daily.
