Toothbrushes

So many toothbrushes … which one to choose?!?!?!?!?!

They fall into two major categories – manual and automatic.

Before choosing a toothbrush, know what it will do for you:

1. remove food and plaque.
2. help interrupt plaque formation.
3. stimulate the gums, keeping them healthy and well exercised
Manual toothbrushes comes in many sizes, designs and levels of stiffness. The automatic toothbrush also comes in different designs with various brushing methods and other features that should be considered in the selection process.

Here are some things to consider when choosing a toothbrush:

Individual size
Effectiveness and ease to manipulate
Ease to clean and maintain
Durability
Cost

Your dental hygienist can help you make the best choice.

    Thanks for this list! My dentist in Winnipeg keeps recommending an electric tooth brush but I’ve gone my whole life manually and haven’t had a cavity in years. I’ve been thinking about switching but I just don’t think I need to and it seems like if you brush well either way your teeth will stay healthy. Thanks again!

    • Thanks for your comment! Electric toothbrushes are not for everyone. Your hygienist will recommend if they are needed for you depending on their assessment. Just ask her why she recommends it for you.
