Your brushing is only as good as your technique, your patience, and the toothbrush you use! Assuming you’ve got the skills to brush thoroughly and the foresight to take the full two minutes you need, that just leaves one more factor: Your brush! How’s the brush you’ve been using for your dental hygiene? Would you give it high praise if asked or are you this close to throwing it in the trash can because it’s not so great? We can help you decide if your brush is a good one or if you need to make a new choice with some simple suggestions.
How Do You Feel About Your Brush?
Do you feel good about your toothbrush? Or, do you feel some frustration every time you look at it? If it’s the latter, then you might want to make some changes. You should enjoy the brush that you’ve chosen. Otherwise, you’re not going to feel very enthusiastic about your dental hygiene, which doesn’t bode well for your smile!
How Well Does Your Brush Work?
How do you feel your brush is working? Not so great? This is a sign that you might need to try a different brush. Perhaps your dental hygiene isn’t on target because your bristles are too hard (they should only be soft, so never purchase something that is medium or firm). It might be that it’s just not a great fit for you, if either the handle is uncomfortable to hold or the head of the brush isn’t shaped well to fit into every last section of your mouth. Try some new options out by heading to the drugstore and purchasing something new.
