Finding the Right Toothbrush

Finding the Right ToothbrushThere are a mind boggling number of toothbrushes available on the market, in a dizzying array of sizes, shapes, and styles. Selecting the most appropriate toothbrush for your needs can prove to be a confusing process.

Our dentist in Los Angeles, CA, advocates utilizing a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean off plaque, bacteria, and other detritus from your teeth. Dentist agree that brushes will small heads are better, as it is easier for them to connect with the many hard to reach areas of the mouth.

You should select a toothbrush handle, available in varieties like non-slip grip or flexible neck based on your own personal predilections. Your preferences for bristles - which can come in a variety of styles including flat, domed, and rippled - can also be determined through trial and error to determine what suits you best. The ideal toothbrush is one that allows you to comfortably reach all of your teeth without issue. Some individuals may elect to use a powered toothbrush, due its ability to easily clean for long periods of time.

Toothbrushes should be replaced every three months, or when they begin to show demonstrable wear and tear. Always change your toothbrush after recovering from a cold. During your dental cleaning, our Los Angeles dental cleaning dentist can discuss different toothbrush options with you.
