Keep Smiles White With the Right Toothbrush

05 Jul, 2011 | By teethwhiteningbypearl

After Visiting Pearl Teeth Whitening in Vancouver, many patients ask about which toothbrush will help keep their smiles bright. With so many shapes, sizes and brands on the market, deciding what kind to buy is understandably confusing.

The answer is: there is no best brand on the market. You must choose the brush that is right for you. To help you along, consider the following:

  • a soft-bristled brush is best for removing plaque and debris from your teeth. Small-headed brushes are  preferable, since they can  access hard to reach areas of the mouth.
  • The best toothbrush is one that’s comfortable to use and encourages regular brushing. When it comes to the handle, head shape, and bristle style, try different brand and stick with what works best for you.
  • electric toothbrushes generally do better job of cleaning teeth, particularly if you dislike brushing or have limited use of your hands.

Toothbrushes must be replaced when they start looking scraggly and sad. No one likes a mouthful of bristles! Generally, it’s a good idea to replace your toothbrush about every three months, since the bristles collect germs that can lead to infection.

Choosing the right toothbrush is an important part of keeping your smile bright and shiny. While Pearl teeth whitening in Vancouver can help you achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of, the right tools and habits will help  maintain the sparkling results.
