Which toothbrush should I choose?
With so many different toothbrushes on the market, it can be difficult to find the one that works best for you. Here we take a closer look at the brush head, grip and design to help you find the best toothbrush for you.
The best toothbrush varies from person to person, and from mouth to mouth. We know that many people choose toothbrushes based on old habits, choosing to get the same type of toothbrush you always have, just because you always did. Sound familiar? If this is the case, you may have overlooked a brush that suits you better.
CHOOSING A TOOTHBRUSH: SIZE AND HARDNESS OF THE BRUSH HEAD
It is important that the toothbrush feels comfortable in your mouth, so the size of the brush head is important in relation to the size of your mouth is one of the first things to notice when toothbrush shopping. It is not the case that larger bristles provide better cleaning, so don’t let that convince you to get a toothbrush that isn’t comfortable in your mouth. To be able to reach in all areas of the mouth, it is better that the brush head is too small than too large.
The optimal brush head is also on the soft side, so you can avoid damaging the gums. You should be aware that even if a toothbrush is described as ‘medium’ on the packaging, it may still be too hard for you. You might need to try out a few different toothbrushes before you find the bristle strength for your teeth, and know that bristle strength does not translate equally across different brush brands.
CHOOSING A TOOTHBRUSH: GRIP
A good grip is important to be able to maneuver the toothbrush around in the mouth. How narrow or wide the handle you choose depends on how your typically hold it. If you hold the toothbrush as a precision instrument, like with just your fingers, you can choose a brush with a narrow handle. If you hold the toothbrush as a tool, like with your whole hand, you should choose a brush with a larger handle to get a good grip when brushing.
A soft and flexible toothbrush that bends too much can cause you to press harder to brush properly, and thus you can damage both the gums and the teeth, so be careful when choosing your brush handle, too.
CHOOSING A TOOTHBRUSH: DESIGN
Functional design of a toothbrush promotes efficient cleaning and helps to ensure good oral hygiene. For many, the aesthetic design is also important, with many consumers looking for a toothbrush with a fresh design that makes brushing more tempting. It is not recommended to choose a toothbrush based solely on this factor, however, as you may end up with a toothbrush that does not really suit you and your teeth.

REMEMBER TO CHANGE YOUR TOOTHBRUSH REGULARLY
Using a toothbrush daily causes wear on the toothbrush. A worn toothbrush does not clean the teeth as well as a new one. To get the best possible cleaning of your teeth, the toothbrush should be changed every three months. A good rule of thumb is to change the toothbrush with the seasons, or to check if your toothbrush has lost its natural shape.
