What To Look For When Looking For a New Toothbrush
Posted on 12/7/2020 by Dynamic Dental Office
Regular, effective, and safe brushing is crucial to promote healthy teeth and gums. It is also necessary for fresh breath and a brighter smile. Improving your oral hygiene has a direct positive impact on your overall body health. For better oral health, you need to have a good toothbrush.
Physical Features To Consider
A toothbrush with a long handle is a great option because it helps give you the grasp you need for comfortable brushing and helps you reach the furthest teeth (molars and premolars). Secondly, you need to consider the bristles; they range from soft, medium to hard bristles. Most people prefer a toothbrush with softer bristles because it is more comfortable in the mouth and non-abrasive to your gums and tooth enamel. The hard and medium bristles can irritate your gums during brushing; hence, fewer people go for them. These brushes can also weaken your teeth, leading to periodontal infections. The size of the toothbrush is another vital factor to check. The head of the toothbrush should be of the right size to enhance your brushing. Toothbrushes with larger heads are less effective since it is difficult to properly maneuver it between the teeth and your molars' back.
The best toothbrush allows you to brush all tooth surfaces, gums and access oral tissues hidden behind the molars. This toothbrush type enables you to remove all food particles that may remain and cause bacteria buildup, which can develop into oral plaque, causing oral infections. An ADA approval on a toothbrush is crucial since it affirms that the brush has met all the required standards of a good toothbrush.
