Is It Time to Replace Your Toothbrush? Consider Purchasing a Brush With These Characteristics

August 26, 2017

Are you on your way to the store to purchase a new toothbrush? If so, it’s important to select the right brush for your smile. Unfortunately, there are many toothbrushes that can harm your teeth and gums. So, to choose the best toothbrush, it’s best to follow Dr. Harihar Kumar’s instructions.

Choose a brush that has the necessary characteristics, and the first characteristic to look for is soft bristles. This is important because soft bristles properly clean the teeth as well as care for the gums. Soft bristles might not sound as effective as hard bristles, but they are, so don’t forget to choose a soft-bristled toothbrush.

The second is round bristles. Now, our dental team understands that this might be a confusing tip because the bristles don’t actually look round. We actually mean it’s best to choose a brush that has bristles with rounded tips. The rounded tips clean the teeth without harming the oral tissues.

The third is the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. This logo proves that the product has been tested for safe and effective use. It will deeply clean your teeth and keep your smile in tip-top shape, so don’t forget to keep an eye out for this logo.
