It’s very important to brush your teeth every morning and night. However, it’s not very effective if you have the wrong toothbrush. This is why it’s very important to choose the right toothbrush for your smile at the store. Our dentist is happy to help you select the best toothbrush for you by encouraging you to look for the following characteristics:

-Soft bristles: Soft bristles are recommended because they can properly and thoroughly clean the teeth as well as keep the gums in tip-top shape. Other toothbrushes that don’t have soft bristles can wear away the tooth enamel and even make the gums pull away from the teeth, especially if you brush too hard. It’s best to use a soft-bristled toothbrush.

-The American Dental Association Seal of Approval: This Seal of Approval signifies the toothbrush’s safety and effectiveness. In fact, it proves that the brush is safe and effective in an oral hygiene routine, thanks to many tough ADA tests. So, make sure the brush you choose has this Seal.

-A non-slip grip: A non-slip grip handle can help you properly clean your teeth because it can give you the control you need to scrub plaque and other harmful substances away.
