How to choose the right toothbrush

Great dental advice from your favourite Stoke On Trent Dentist & part of the Limtree Dental Care Group

Are you having a difficult time when choosing
a toothbrush?  
I'm here to help you correctly choose a toothbrush.,As you already probably noticed if you walk
down the aisle at the pharmacy and you notice,there is a large variety of different toothbrushes
out there. Depending on the patient and the,person that's buying the toothbrush, would
also depend on what type of toothbrush you're,going to get. If you're buying for a child,
of course you actually need to buy in our,smaller sized toothbrush, something with soft
bristles so therefore is not as hard on the,child's gums. If you're buying for like a
teenager, you can buy a medium sized toothbrush,or vice versa, if you're buying for an adult,
you'd buy just the regular sized toothbrush.,Now with toothbrushes come the bristles and
the bristles are all different. You have hard,bristles, you have soft bristles, so depending
on the patient and what type of teeth that,you have, if you have natural teeth, if you
have crowns, if you have bridges, or dental,implants, or if you have dentures, would reflect
on what type of toothbrush you need to purchase.,Now personally, I like the soft toothbrushes
because I have natural teeth and with the,soft toothbrush, it's a lot easier on my gums.
It's not going to be as harsh as a hard toothbrush,would be, which in return would prevent for
me to have any gum recession. With a soft,toothbrush, also too the bristles are a lot
thinner and softer so it's easier to get in,there and brush your teeth correctly, with
in return will help prevent with any cavities,or decay in the future. If you have as far
as like bridges and dentures and crowns in,your mouth, then you might want to purchase
more of a toothbrush with harder bristles.,This will really focus on putting pressure
on your crowns and on the bridges to get any,bacteria or debris that might be stuck to
them. Also too with a harder toothbrushes,,you really want to be careful though, that
you're not putting too much pressure on your,gums because if you put too much pressure
on your gums, your gums will actually start,to recede which will cause sensitivity to
your teeth. So it's always best to consult,with your general dentist that you see on
a regular basis and kind of get his ideas,on what type of toothbrush would be great
for you. But other than that, hopefully I've,helped you to choose a correct toothbrush.
