Sometimes, it’s not easy. There are a lot of choices out there when it comes to purchasing a toothbrush, which makes it difficult to know what to look for. And here are some general tips on what to look for :
- Small brush head and well-designed bristles : it should allow you easy access to all surfaces of your teeth. For most adults, a toothbrush head a half-inch wide and one-inch tall will be the easiest to use and the most effective.
- Soft bristles: Your toothbrush should have soft bristles that are gentle on your teeth and gums.
- Don’t buy no-name dollar-store toothbrushes : Five no-name toothbrushes in a package may seem like a steal at a handful of pennies each, but consider the risks. The product could be from a manufacturer who doesn’t care about safety or efficacy. The toothbrushes could be made of unsafe materials.
