There’s an awful lot we could talk about in regard to your smile health. However, if we are going to begin at the very beginning, we think it’s best to start off with your toothbrush. If your brush isn’t up to par, then your brushing won’t be effective, allowing plaque and tartar to accumulate. When you are making wise dental hygiene product selections, teeth have a much better chance of remaining clean and healthy. So, we encourage you to think through some helpful recommendations that can truly make a positive impact.

Your Bristles

Your dental hygiene will greatly benefit from your decision to use not firm or hard or medium bristles. Nope. You’ll need to pick up a brush from the hygiene aisle that says “soft” on it. The reasoning? You can remove food and plaque safely and gently. It works!

The Brush Design

Don’t get too hung up on the esthetics. Instead, pay close attention to whether the toothbrush is functional in its design. Will you feel comfortable holding and using it? Is it the right size for you? Are you happy with the bristle configuration? Look for features you like.

The Price

Don’t scan for the highest price and choose it. The cost is not necessarily going to be a good indicator of effectiveness. Choose something that fits your purpose and that is accepted by the ADA.

ADA Approval

This means the American Dental Association has literally tested the brush model you’re considering, deemed it safe and effective for dental hygiene, and given its stamp of acceptance. As result, you know it’s going to help protect your dental health.
