Choosing The Right Toothbrush
You may think that any old toothbrush will do, but choosing the right toothbrush will greatly affect how clean your teeth are and stay that way!
Here at Janina Ultra White we take the health of your teeth and mouth seriously, ensuring all of our products have optimum fluoride levels to healthy and strong teeth. So what factors should you consider before buying your toothbrush?
For the majority, soft bristles will be the most comfortable for your teeth in comparison to medium or hard bristles, which can actually cause damage to your gums and protective tooth enamel. Softer bristles have been proven to remove plaque easier than hard bristles!
2. Small head
We’d recommend opting for a toothbrush with a small head as this will allow you to reach all areas of your mouth easily.
3. Powered vs Manual Toothbrush
A powered toothbrush is preferred by many as it can do a better job of cleaning teeth, particularly for those who have difficulty brushing or who have limited manual dexterity. Many powered toothbrushes also come with a timer to help you stick to the recommended time and will warn you when you are brushing too hard – which can damage your gums and tooth enamel.
Another must-know answer is when should I replace my toothbrush? The ideal time is every three months or whenever your toothbrush is starting to look worn. Remember that bacteria can spread in the bristles of your toothbrush too!
