We all know the importance of brushing twice a day, and flossing at least once daily. So, the short answer is to choose a brush you are most likely to use!
At Woodin Creek Dental, we know that it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the variety of toothbrushes offered at your local store. Electric or manual? Soft bristles or medium? It would be difficult to give one specific answer, because everyone is different and has unique needs.
How Can Woodin Creek Dental Help?
Our dental hygienist will usually make the recommendation based on your unique condition. Young children and older people with dexterity problems may find it easier to use an electronic brush that does most of the work. High-end electronic toothbrushes have proven to be quite effective. However, lower-cost ones can also be effective. If you use an electronic brush, make sure you replace the brush and head every three months. Over time, the brush can wear out, and accumulate bacteria. Please contact Woodin Creek Dental if you want more details!
