How do I know which toothbrush is the right one for me?

Brushing frequency and replacing an old brush with a new one are much more important issues than the brand you choose.

A softer toothbrush is better for your gums and the roots of your teeth than a harder toothbrush.
We recommend a soft bristled brush with a small head. Softer bristles are important for the health of your gums and a small head allows you to get around each tooth better.

Brushing also is not an exercise of your brute strength; instead it’s a technique-oriented activity in disease control. Knowing how to brush your teeth is the most important thing to do it effectively.

An electric toothbrush is typically more effective than your regular toothbrush in destroying biofilms and plaque. They are far more effective in general disease control and in preventing gingivitis and periodontal disease.
