How to Pick the Right Toothbrush

Going to the store to get a new toothbrush may be an overwhelming task. There are hundreds of options on the market with different colors, sizes and bristles. Depending on your mouth conditions your dentist may recommend a specific toothbrush that will fit your needs. If that isn’t the case, here are some factors to consider when buying your new toothbrush:

Size: The best toothbrush is the one that can reach all surfaces of your teeth. Make sure you buy one with a head that allows you to access all areas of your mouth- especially your molars and along the rear gum line. Dr. Nick’s WHITE & healthy 46 Tuft Large Head Toothbrush helps you do more cleansing in less time. Larger head and oversized handle offer more efficiency and greater control.

Bristles: A toothbrush with soft-nylon bristles is the most comfortable choice. Hard-bristled toothbrushes could damage your gums, root surface and enamel.

ADA Seal of Acceptance: Make sure the toothbrush you buy has the ADA Seal of Approval. All products with this Seal of Approval have been shown to meet ADA criteria for safety and effectiveness.
