|Oral health starts with observing the right oral healthcare practice at all times. This includes regular brushing of your teeth. Unfortunately, most people only pay attention to the type of toothpaste they're using and completely forget about the toothbrush.
When it comes to the toothbrush, anything goes for them. It shouldn't be this way. How do you choose the best toothbrush for your teeth? Below are some of the factors you may consider when making a toothbrush selection.
Factors To Consider When Making A Tooth Brush Selection
If you have sensitive teeth, it is advisable to go for the type of toothbrush designed for sensitive teeth. This will make brushing teeth more comfortable and enjoyable. Most of the toothbrushes designed for sensitive teeth tend to have soft bristles and reach the hidden areas of the tooth thus minimizing the plaque that has built up.
When making a selection for kids, go for the design that will often remind them that it is time to brush. As a parent, you may consider the toothbrushes with Bluetooth connectivity which gives the kids instructions on how to brush besides entertaining them. The entertainment helps them to warm up to regular brushing.
If you have braces, then you should get a toothbrush that can reach in between the braces. Otherwise, you risk having the buildup of harmful substances behind the braces. Not every toothbrush will be able to reach the corners of your mouth. You can get in touch with our office for recommendations.
Whether you choose to go for an electric or manual toothbrush, it really doesn't matter as long as it is able to serve you well. Your oral hygiene is the main priority, always keep that in mind when shopping for a toothbrush. If you need demonstrations on how to properly brush your teeth, visit our clinic today.
