What Kind of Toothbrush Should I Use?

Do you feel confused at the store when you see the sea of toothbrushes and wonder which one is best for you? If so, then you are not alone. Having multiple products to choose from raises questions like which one should you pick? That is why, our team at Adam Rauzman, DDS in Hawthorne, New Jersey, is happy to talk to you about the options of choosing your toothbrush.

Manual toothbrushes are the traditional toothbrushes you can use to brush your teeth thoroughly. Choosing a manual toothbrush with very soft bristles can help clean your teeth well when used properly. Using your hand to brush back and forth or up and down is safe and effective to use for removing food particles, plaque, and bacteria from your teeth.

Electric toothbrushes are for many much easier to use. With the press of a button, the bristles move for you as you gently move it around your teeth in each angle in your mouth. Many of them have a timer you can use to mark when two minutes have passed, so you know you have brushed long enough for a deep clean. This toothbrush is also highly effective at keeping your smile beautiful.

The vital thing to remember is any toothbrush is better than no toothbrush at all. That is why Dr. Adam Rauzman encourages you to brush to keep your oral health in excellent condition. Both kinds of toothbrushes can get the job done if you keep the twice a day habit and use them correctly.
