You’ve probably Googled what the perfect toothbrush should look like and possibly have found a few different answers. Choosing a perfect toothbrush can be a bit challenging with so many different kinds offered to you. Most people find it difficult to know what they should look for.
Check out these general tips on what to look for when choosing toothbrushes:
- Your perfect toothbrush should have a small head and bristles that are designed so you can reach all the hard-to-reach places in your mouth
- Soft bristles are important. They have to be gentle on your teeth and gums
- A toothbrush should have a comfortable handle with a non-slip grip so it’s easy to be used when wet
There are also three different types of power toothbrushes you may choose: rechargeable electric toothbrush (including sonic), regular manual toothbrush and battery power.
Rechargeable electric brushes are the ones you plug into the wall to recharge and purchase replacement brush heads every three months.The most common type of a toothbrush is a regular manual one which you are most likely accustomed to. They have a plastic handle and various nylon bristle designs. Battery power toothbrushes are similar in design to manual ones but they have enough vibration to provide an extra cleaning action.
Here are a few electric toothbrushes reviews that might help you decide.
