Choosing the Right Toothbrush

Oral health is so important to our overall well-being.  Not only is it crucial to visit your Miami sedation dentist regularly, but you should follow a consistent and thorough cleaning routine at home and this starts with making sure you have the right toothbrush.

From a young age we are taught the importance of brushing regularly.  We now know just how important it really is.  Having a healthy mouth can help prevent serious diseases such as a heart disease.  Picking the right toothbrush to help achieve optimal oral health is more important than ever.  Web MD offers some quick tips to consider before choosing what you will clean your teeth with.

First, consider the size of your toothbrush.  You want the toothbrush large enough to cover surface area, but you don’t want it too big because you want to comfortably maneuver the brush around your mouth.  Bristle firmness is also important.  Many dentists recommend soft bristles to ensure tooth enamel is not damaged.  It’s also important to look for the American Dental Association (ADA) seal on your toothbrush packages to ensure it meet the requirements set forth by this reputable group.

Also, talk to your dentist about what type of toothbrush he or she may recommend.  They may have a personal favorite or know that one toothbrush works best for patients in their experience.  A toothbrush that effectively removes plaque build up, and gently cleans your tooth is important to have in your daily routine to ensure your optimal health.
