You’ve heard time and time again how important it is to brush your teeth, however, it’s also important to choose the right toothbrush.
In most cases, a soft-bristled toothbrush is best. Otherwise, you run the risk of damaging your tooth enamel if you have a medium- or hard-bristled toothbrush. Pay attention to the size too. You’ll want one that fits inside your mouth comfortably and can brush all sides of your teeth. At your next appointment, we’ll discuss if you need a particular type of toothbrush, such as one with certain bristle positioning, and more.
Most of all, look for one with the ADA seal of acceptance. Check out this fun video by the American Dental Association (ADA) that shows the hard work toothbrushes go through to be approved with the ADA seal of acceptance.
