How do I choose the right toothbrush for me?

How do I choose the right toothbrush for me?

There are so many different shapes, sizes and styles of toothbrushes on the market, so deciding which one to buy can be difficult.Our key tips below should help you find the right toothbrush for you.

Pennington Dental would suggest that a soft bristled brush is best for removing plaque and debris from your teeth. Small-headed brushes are also preferable because they can reach all areas of your mouth including your back teeth.

Toothbrush handles come in all sorts of shapes and sizes such as non-slip grip or flexible neck. The bristles can be rippled, flat or trimmed to a dome shape – just pick whichever style is most comfortable for you. The best toothbrush for you is the one that fits your mouth and allows you to reach all your teeth easily.
The most effective toothbrush is a powered one. If used correctly it can do a great job of cleaning your teeth, particularly for those of you who have difficulty in brushing or who have limited manual dexterity.

How often should you replace your toothbrush?

Pennington Dental suggest that you should replace your toothbrush when it begins to show wear or at least every three months.  It is also important to change your toothbrush after a cold because the bristles can collect germs that can lead to reinfection.
