Since brushing your teeth is the foundation of good oral hygiene and the best way to avoid the need for dental treatments like a filling or root canal, having the right toothbrush is crucial. There are many different types of toothbrushes available. This video will help you choose the right one for you.Most dentists recommend that patients use soft-bristled toothbrushes to avoid damage to the teeth surfaces. This can be especially important if you have veneers or sensitive teeth. Choose a brush with an ergonomic handle that fits easily into your hand so you can brush effectively. Toothbrush heads come in different sizes, so select one that is comfortable for your mouth. If you’re not sure what type of toothbrush you should use, talk to your dentist at your next appointment.
