Choices of a toothbrush
  • It is essential that the toothbrush can move freely in your mouth to clean every tooth surface. The bristles should be soft so that it does not injure the gums.

  • The size of the toothbrush head should be appropriate to the size of the oral cavity. In general, the size of a toothbrush head which is about the diameter of a one-dollar coin will be suitable for adults.

  • The bristle pattern and handle design should be determined by personal preference and habit.

  • Both manual and powered toothbrushes clean the teeth effectively as long as they are used correctly.

  • If you choose to use an interdental brush or a powered toothbrush, you should consult your dentist first.
