When you’re establishing a good oral health regimen, likely one of the last things you’ll consider is whether or not you’ve picked the right toothbrush. You’re probably focused more on ensuring that you have good toothpaste, floss, and have put a good regimen into place.
So let’s take a look at the types of toothbrushes Dr. Edmund L. W. Char recommends you use to maintain optimal oral health.
The best bet for removing plaque from your teeth is a soft-bristled toothbrush. The softer bristles are gentler on your gums, and in addition, they’re more effective at cleaning right along your gum line, where plaque tends to gather in thicker quantities.
The best brushes have small heads because this enables them to more easily reach all areas of your mouth.
The most effective brushes are far and away electric ones. The revolving head and circular motions do a much better job of evenly cleaning your teeth. These are also great if you have limited dexterity with or want to ensure that you’re cleaning as effectively as possible.
At the end of the day, the choice you make in a toothbrush really does matter. If you have any questions about specific brands or styles that Dr. Edmund L. W. Char recommends, call us today at (808) 450-2155.
