What type of toothbrush and toothpaste should I use?
Posted on 1/24/2022 by OM
You should compromise when it comes to your dental health. Oral wellness is important for your overall health and as such, you should take appropriate measures to maintain optimal oral health. Proper brushing of teeth twice per day, and flossing are the standard habits that you can perform at home that will assist you in maintaining top-quality dental hygiene. That said, you should practice proper brushing techniques as poor practices can end up doing more harm than good.
Change your toothbrush every three months
Change your toothbrush every three months to prevent bacteria in your old toothbrush from finding a way back into your mouth. An old toothbrush will also have soft bristles that will be unable to remove plaque from the surface of your teeth.
Type of toothbrush to use
When looking for a new toothbrush, it is important to find one that has bristles that will clean your teeth properly, while ensuring that the soft tissues of your mouth are not harmed. This means to get a toothbrush with bristles that are not too soft or too hard. In the same manner, select a toothbrush with a head that will allow you to reach the molar teeth at the back end of the jaw.
Also, find a toothbrush that is recommended by reputable institutions such as the American Dental Association. You can trust that they have passed it as fit and safe for use.
Type of toothpaste to use
Find a toothpaste that has fluoride in its contents. Fluoride is important in the strengthening of your teeth.
