We all know that brushing and flossing your teeth every single day is imperative to ideal oral health. You should brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes. Knowing how to choose a toothbrush that will best aid you in your fight against decay is important as well, so Dr. Adrian Huang and our team are thrilled to give you advice to follow on your next toothbrush selecting outing.
The bristles of your toothbrush should be soft, or even extra soft. Avoid toothbrushes whose bristles are medium or hard, as these can damage your tooth enamel.
Electric vs. Manual
Both electric and manual toothbrushes can effectively and comfortably clean your teeth if used correctly. Choose whichever type you prefer. If you have a hard time achieving a thorough clean with a manual toothbrush, consider buying an electric one.
Other factors are really dependent on your preferences when you choose your toothbrush. For instance, toothbrush heads come in various shapes. Choose the shape that feels the most comfortable when you brush.
