What Type of Toothbrush Should I Use?
With so many shapes, sizes and styles of toothbrushes on the market, its many a times very confusing which tooth brush to select.
- Most dental professionals agree that a straight and soft-bristled brush is best for removing plaque and debris from your teeth.
- Small-headed brushes should be preferred , since they can better reach all areas of the mouth, including wisdom teeth.
- The best toothbrush is one that fits your mouth and allows you to reach all teeth easily
- For many, a powered toothbrush (battery operated ) is a good alternative. It can do a better job of cleaning teeth, particularly for those who have difficulty brushing like in mentally challenged patients.
How Often Should I Replace My Toothbrush?
You should replace your toothbrush when it begins to show wear, or every three months, whichever comes first.
