Your Toothbrush: Things To Look For As You Choose A Winner!

If you buy any brush that catches your eye as you’re loading up on dental hygiene products, you might be surprised to learn that you could pick a winner … or a bit of a loser! Did you know that there are some specifications to follow as you’re selecting this smile-cleansing tool? If this is news to you but you’re more than happy to follow any recommendations that will make for better oral health, then come along as our Cleveland, TX team gives you some very important insight. Have questions? Don’t hesitate to let us know the next time you have a visit with us!

Don’t Ignore ADA Acceptance

If you’ve ever thought that seeing the ADA (American Dental Association) Seal of Acceptance on a dental hygiene item was something you could just dismiss, think again! You don’t need to see it, of course. However, it does mean that the toothbrush you’re buying has already been deemed a winner, as it’s been put through several tests by the ADA and has passed them all! Curious if it will work well for your oral health? The answer is yes.

Do Focus On Those Bristles

Bring up toothbrush shopping during any dental checkup with us and we will always talk with you about how important it is to select the right bristles. Some brushes have “hard” ones. Others have “medium.” Then, there are those marked “soft.” Don’t go for hard or firm or medium or anything like that. Look through the options for the toothbrush you’re thinking about purchasing for a package that says “soft” on it. If you can’t find one, move on to another brush model. The soft bristles are extremely important because they give you the power to clean your smile completely without causing any type of damage or problems with comfort.

Ask Yourself: Is This Going To Be Easy To Use?

Is it going to be easy to use the toothbrush you’re considering? We know that you might assume nearly any dental hygiene product you pick up must be quite easy to manipulate. However, with brushes especially, this can often pose a problem. The brush could be too big, the head too big, the handle too large or awkward, or there could be some feature that you really don’t like. Make sure it seems to be a natural fit for your smile before you buy it.
