The multitude of commercially available toothbrushes, with different shapes, sizes and styles, can make it difficult to choose a suitable model. Here are a few tips:
In general, professionals agree that a soft toothbrush is ideal for removing plaque and food debris. Toothbrushes with small heads are also preferable because they allow reaching the most difficult areas, including the teeth of the bottom.
For the choice of handle (ergonomic, or swivel head), the head shape (tapered or rectangular) or the type of hair (wavy, flat, domed), one tip choose the most comfortable for you. The best toothbrush is the one that fits the shape of your mouth and allows you to brush all your teeth easily. With the oral b comparison this is important now.
For some, an electric toothbrush is a good alternative. She can wash her teeth more effectively, especially for people who have difficulty brushing their teeth or who have reduced manual mobility.
How often do I replace my toothbrush?
You must replace your toothbrush when it begins to deteriorate. Otherwise, it is advisable to replace it every 3 months. It is also essential to replace your toothbrush after a cold because the hair may contain germs that can cause a new infection.
If you’re like me, a quick visit to the pharmacy to buy a new toothbrush or a new tube of toothpaste can quickly become confusing in front of the wide choice that is available to you. So you take a long time trying to choose the product that will eliminate all the bacteria , whiten your teeth and give you an incredibly fresh breath. How to opt for the best product when there is such a large selection?
A suitable toothbrush
There are several aspects to consider when buying a good toothbrush that fits your needs. There is first the hair. You might think that the stiffer bristles brush better. However, these have difficulty in correctly reaching the small spaces between the teeth. In addition, they could irritate the gums. The soft bristles are much more effective, while the extra-soft bristles are especially suitable for people who suffer from tooth sensitivity. Also, be aware that synthetic hair is softer than natural hair. In addition, there are also toothbrushes provided with silicone structures between the bristles.
They do not help eliminate plaque and bacteria. They are used to remove stains that are caused by coffee and soft drinks. Their effect is therefore slightly whitening. It is also important to choose a toothbrush that fits the size of your head. You have to be able to reach the more difficult places to access the back of the mouth. Some toothbrushes have a partially articulated head, which can sometimes help to reach certain parts of the teeth. In the case of electric toothbrushes, they are usually much more effective than manual toothbrushes, especially those with a round brush, like your dentist’s tools. In addition, these toothbrushes are to be replaced every two years, rather than three months.
