About ADA Acceptance
In order to feel certain that you’re getting your smile nice and clean with your toothbrush, so you leave dental checkups with a clean bill of health, remember that one of the things you should consider is whether your brush works. Sure, you may be able to pick up any brush and make it clean your smile. However, when you really want to feel certain the moment you’re purchasing that dental hygiene item that it is going to work for you, check out the package. Find products that displays the American Dental Association’s (ADA) Seal of Acceptance.
About The Bristles
We remind patients frequently that aggressive, harsh care can lead to a variety of smile problems, from receding gum tissue to stripped enamel. What you may not realize is that this can all begin (and even end) with the bristles you choose. Effective dental hygiene always requires soft bristles on a toothbrush no matter what. Remember this when you shop!
About The Handle, Size, And More
Your toothbrush either fits comfortably in your hand and your mouth or it doesn’t! It is very important for it to fit, so you can use it easily and effectively.
About Manual Versus Electric
Our team wants you to realize that when it comes to the debate over electric toothbrushes versus manual toothbrushes, it nearly always comes down to what you want and need. There’s not one universal secret to which will most benefit your smile health. Instead, remember that either can work for you. The main reason to switch for oral health concerns might be that:
- You need an easier way to brush due to concerns like arthritis
- You are an aggressive brusher and going electric will help ease your approach
