How To Choose A Toothbrush?

It is actually best to get help from a dentist when choosing a toothbrush. Because the condition of your gums is best known by your dentist.

The toothbrush is not limited to the generally known toothbrush options in the market. It would be better for you to decide with your dentist the most suitable brush for you. After using several different brushes, patients can choose the most suitable brush for them.

Whether the toothbrush can be angled or not, whether the handle is angled or not, is related to the user’s preference. The size of the brush  is very important when choosing a brush. The depth of the gums of the patients and the ability to move the brush in that area is a very important issue. Therefore, brushes with very large heads can cause problems in use. As far as possible, smaller-headed brushes may be more useful. It is recommended to choose brushes that have easy access to the rear parts.

The best toothbrushes for cleaning your teeth and gums are those with soft, rounded or polished bristles. Firm or hard toothbrushes can damage your gum tissues.

The size and shape of the toothbrush should be such that it can reach every tooth. There are various sized toothbrushes for children and adults, as well as toothbrushes with various bristle shapes. Remember, only the tips of the bristles on the toothbrush clean, so there is no need to press the toothbrush with great force.

Replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months or before if the bristles of the brush are bent. So you always use a toothbrush with bristles that better remove plaque (bacteria and sugar) from the surface of your teeth and gums. Bristles that curve outward indicate that it’s past time to replace your toothbrush.

Buying a Toothbrush for Children

It is most appropriate for children to start brushing their teeth at the age of 2.5 -3 years. However, the important thing at these ages is to make them love brushing in order to gain this habit, rather than brushing itself. For this, we can choose colored and flavored special children’s pastes and toothbrushes available in the market. Children often only brush the visible front surfaces because they perceive it as a game. For this reason, it is the best way for parents to accompany the child and teach him to brush his teeth.

First of all, since children’s teeth and gums are much more sensitive than adults, the product used must be suitable for this sensitive structure. Brushes with soft bristles and suitable for the child’s mouth size should be purchased. Hard toothbrush bristles are not suitable for use as they will abrade the teeth. It will be sufficient to ensure that children brush their teeth for three minutes after breakfast and before going to bed at night.

What should adults consider when buying a toothbrush?

It is important to buy various toothbrush brands that are suitable for our mouth and teeth and approved by doctors. In addition, flossing once a day is ideal for cleaning areas that the toothbrush cannot reach. Mouthwash especially helps us to have a fresh breath. The toothbrush should be neither too hard nor too soft, but if the person has very sensitive gums or is sick, it is appropriate to prefer soft bristle brushes, the toothbrush used by a normal adult should have medium hard bristles and the head should be of the appropriate size for the mouth. Instead of brushes with very thin handles, we should choose brush handles with a certain thickness and softness; thus, it provides ease of movement while brushing our teeth.

In addition, brushes with a newly released tongue cleaner feature may also be ideal for us. For our oral and dental health, we should brush not only our teeth, but also our gums and tongue. Cheek cleansers are also recommended, especially for people with gum or oral problems. Of course, toothpaste is also very important in addition to the toothbrush. Toothpastes with fluoride and recommended by our dentist, if possible, may be the best for us.

Rechargeable Toothbrushes

Rechargeable toothbrushes, which give more effective results than normal toothbrushes, eliminate plaque formation. Rechargeable toothbrushes, which do not harm the gums and minimize gum diseases, do not damage the gums according to research and do not bleed the gums compared to normal toothbrushes. Since electric toothbrushes are smaller and rounder, they move more easily in the mouth and provide deep cleaning. Experts state that electric toothbrushes are more effective against the formation of bacteria and plaque.
