How To Choose Your Toothbrush 

When it comes to picking out a toothbrush, there are a wide variety of options. It is important to find a toothbrush that is comfortable for you to use. Consider the following when choosing a toothbrush. 

The Bristles 

It is best to choose a toothbrush with soft bristles. Using a toothbrush with hard bristles can cause damage. It may cause your gums to pull back from your teeth, which would leave the root exposed and increase sensitivity. 

The Toothbrush Head 

Consider the size of the toothbrush head. Generally, toothbrush heads are about 1” long and 0.5” wide. However, there are other sizes available. You want something that will fit easily into your mouth. 

Powered Toothbrushes 
Powered toothbrushes don’t necessarily clean better, but they may be easier to use for people who have arthritis, people with other mobility-limiting conditions, and anyone with misaligned teeth or braces (since the uneven surface can make cleaning more difficult).
