Big dilemma... which is the good brush
Updated: Mar 1
Even though buying a tooth brush is a trivial thing the oral hygiene section in our super markets may at times, overwhelm us with varieties of toothbrushes. But, irrespective of the colour, brand, price – the most-decisive factor should be driven by the fact that whether it will suit you or not.
We at " Sparkling White Dental "as the part of dental community have the same view that a soft-bristled brush is best for removing plaque and debris from your teeth. Small-headed brushes are preferable since they can better reach all areas of the mouth, including hard-to-reach back teeth When it comes to the type of handle (such as non-slip grip or flexible neck), the shape of the head (tapered and style of bristles (such as rippled, flat or trimmed to a dome shape), pick whatever is most comfortable for you. The best toothbrush is one that fits your mouth and allows you to reach all teeth easily
Tooth Brushes with bristles bent or intertwined showing the signs of wear or after 3 months of usage should be replace as soon as possible, Whichever comes first.
Motorised battery operated brushes have been proven to be more efficacious that hand held conventional brushes. As these brushes spin on a spindle driven by the motor they do make a audible sound which alerts the user of excessive pressure being used. Other advantage is horizontal scrubbing which is possible with manual brush is not possible with motorised brush. This helps in avoiding gum recession caused by horizontal brushing movements as well as abrasion of enamel near gum margins.
