The time has come to get a new toothbrush. The American Dental Association recommends that you replace your toothbrush about every three to four months. Our dentist and team are here if you need advice on picking the toothbrush that best suits your needs and preferences.

Your toothbrush’s head should be small so that it easily reaches all areas of your mouth. The bristles of the toothbrush should be soft, or even extra soft. Toothbrushes with medium or hard bristles could potentially damage your tooth enamel. It is also suggested that the bristles of the toothbrush have varying lengths so that the brush can easily access and clean the deep grooves of the teeth. Choose the shape of your toothbrush head based on your individual preferences.

There are different types of toothbrush handles available. You may select a handle with a flexible neck, a non-slip grip handle, or whatever is the most comfortable for you. The best toothbrush is one that you will use with comfort and ease.

When choosing between a manual or electronic toothbrush, either can be a great choice. An electronic toothbrush may be preferable if you have difficulty brushing, if you tend to scrub your teeth, or if you have limited manual deftness.
