Whether we like it or not, we all know that an important part of our dental care is going to the dentist regularly, but the cornerstone of oral hygiene is at home. Brushing and flossing twice a day is not only of paramount importance for maintaining a healthy and attractive smile, but the tools we use to perform these daily rituals can also make or break beautiful teeth. So don’t take an old toothbrush with you – find the one that’s right for you.
Like every other inch, our mouths are available from us in all shapes and brands. We probably wouldn’t think too long about squeezing into a shoe that doesn’t fit, but many of us expect a one-size toothbrush to fit everyone. Confused by the selection of dental products we face in the store, we simply choose the color of the toothbrush that we like best and move around without compromising our oral health. First of all, it is important to find the right size toothbrush for our mouth so that we can brush comfortably and reach the surface of each tooth. A tooth is not only cleaned near a brush! Make sure you find a toothbrush the size and shape of your head that you can use to reach every surface of each tooth.
Another important quality of the toothbrush is the type of bristles used. Bristles that are too hard can damage the teeth and wear down the enamel that covers them. Therefore, opt for a softer brush type, especially for gum diseases such as gum disease or gum loss. For a good brush off, look for a toothbrush with nylon bristles with rounded tips.
It is also of the utmost importance that you use a toothbrush that is suitable for the task at hand. Be sure to replace your brush regularly. Every two to three months is a good time to replace or when the bristles look bent and worn. Some toothbrushes are equipped with a color fading system that shows you exactly when your brush is ready for the trash. Just drop the brush when the colored bristles start to fade.
Healthy teeth are important Your trustworthy toothbrush is an important tool to maintain your oral health. So treat your teeth well with the right toothbrush and don’t be afraid to show your smile.
