What’s the best tooth brush?

 

People always ask me what toothbrush to use.

I like the electric ones,  here’s why

They usually have a timer.  the timer beeps every 30 seconds indicating that you have to move to a different quadrant of your mouth.  This means you will get 1 minute for the top teeth and 1 minute for the bottom teeth.  Some people tend to brush more on one side of their mouth vs. the other so it is a good way to make sure all your teeth are getting cleaned properly.  It is also a great way to teach kids to brush their teeth and have them listen for the timer

The second advantage of electric toothbrushes is that you don’t have to “scrub” your teeth.  You just hold the toothbrush against your teeth and move it  back and forth gently.  Thie minimizes the chance of “overbrushing” which can happen causing damage to the gums and teeth.

The third advantage is that electric toothbrushes also can remove some staining from your teeth.  So if you drink a lot of coffe, or  red wine, your teeth are less likely to get stained if you use an electric toothbrush.  This is due to the vibration of the toothbrush bristles that can dislodge stain particles from your teeth.

The one that I use is an Oral-B Professional Care 3000 Electric Toothbrush

I like it because the bristles are soft and the vibration is not soooo strong to give you a headache.  

I have been very happy using this tooth brush for a while and the smaller head size is easy to get waaaay in the back where bigger toothbrushes can’t reach.

Of course, don’t forget to floss!!
