Toothbrush.One simple product one big goal behind it!

There is a huge variety of toothbrushes in the market. A single round in a store is enough to divide anyone. There is a whole area just full of toothbrushes. Other electric other regular, some longer and some others shorter. With a variety of colors, designs and bristles. All designed differently, but with one common purpose,to properly clean our teeth and our oral cavity in general.

On average, the toothbrush should be changed every three months. For people with gum disease, toothbrush must be changed every four or six weeks due to elevated levels of bacteria in it. For the same reason the replacement of it after some illness is necessary. Unfortunately, the majority uses the same one for more than six months.

There is no reason feeling guilty. Replacing your old toothbrush with a new one is easy. The proper choice of a new one, however, is difficult and requires attention.

General “tips” for choosing the right toothbrush.

There are certain features that you should be looking for ,no matter what brush you use (electric or manual).

Size.

The best brush head is the one,which allows you to easily access all surfaces of your teeth. Toothbrushes with fairly big head will probably have a difficulty cleaning specific areas such as the side and back surfaces of the molar teeth.The toothbrush should also have a handle big enough to serve all the moves as you hold it.

Bristle variety.

If you want to change your regular brush or your electric head, you have to choose between soft, medium and hard bristles. For the majority, a toothbrush with soft bristles is the most comfortable and safe choice. Depends on how hard you brush your teeth and how strong your teeth are, but toothbrushes with hard or medium bristles can damage your gums, enamel and root surfaces. For extra protection, make sure the bristles on the toothbrush you picked have rounded edges.

Recommendations.

Make sure that your toothbrush has undergone strict quality checks, ask your dentist for any recommendations. (Otherwise, look for those that have won “American dental Association Seal of Approval”).

Summing up,

if you choose a toothbrush that has the appropriate size and style for your personal needs and you clean your teeth properly, you then avoid buildup of bacteria and plaque formation. Also, when you use the right product for you and not a random one yur daily routine seems more fun!
