Did you know that you might be brushing your pearly whites with the wrong toothbrush? Yes, that might be the case, but we are here to help you find out! If your toothbrush has the following characteristics, it is perfect for your smile and there is no need to worry:
• Bristle type: If your toothbrush has soft bristles, you have made the right choice in toothbrush. The soft bristles safely and effectively clean your teeth and care for your gums. As you brush, the plaque and debris are removed from your smile, which essentially reduces the risks associated with periodontal disease. This is also a great choice for both children and adults, even those with sensitive teeth and gums.
• Toothbrush size: A toothbrush with a half-inch wide and one-inch tall head is generally known to be the best size of toothbrush, especially because it fits comfortably in your mouth. You want to make sure your brush is a tool that fits perfectly in your mouth and thoroughly cleans your teeth. If you would like additional characteristics that are beneficial, you can use a brush with a non-slip grip, a dome-style bristle type, and it can even be electric!
• ADA approval: A toothbrush that has been approved by the American Dental Association is the best toothbrush in town. With this stamp of approval, your toothbrush can effectively and successfully clean your teeth and protect your gums in a safe and productive way.
