The size of your toothbrush’s head will determine comfort when brushing. You need a toothbrush that is easy to use in accessing such areas as behind your molars. It should also not be too small else its effectiveness will be impeded. The recommended brush size for adults is a half inch wide and an inch long.
The texture of the bristles
You will find three options when it comes to the textures; soft, medium and hard. Soft bristles are recommended by Nobleton dentists because they are safe and comfortable. Harder bristles can erode the enamel and hurt the gums.
If you have dental conditions such as tooth sensitivity, you need to talk to your dentist about the best toothbrush for you.
Manual versus electric toothbrush
When shopping around for the right toothbrush, you will come across the electric toothbrush. There are many affordable models of the electric toothbrushes that you will find out there. Taking a look at user reviews will help determine which toothbrush will work best for you. Even though the final choice is about personal preferences if you are torn between an electric and a manual toothbrush, understanding the pros and cons of each will help make a more informed choice.
