Happy National Toothbrush Day!!! Yes, there is even a day to celebrate toothbrushes!
In honor of National Toothbrush Day yesterday, let’s discuss toothbrushes today. Which one is the best for you?
We at Sherman Oaks Dental recommend:
- Soft bristle toothbrushes
- Sonicare toothbrushes
We only recommend soft bristle toothbrushes and brushing in gentle, circular motions. There are no statistics that prove hard bristle brushes to be more effective than soft bristle brushes. In fact, medium or hard bristle brushes can actually do more harm than good! If used incorrectly, medium or hard bristle brushes can cause the gums and teeth to wear. Roots are exposed and teeth become painfully sensitive.
Sonicare is the optimal brush we recommend for adults and kids. This gentle toothbrush pushes the fluid in a wave-like motion between the teeth disrupting the bacteria. Also, it is proven to keep the teeth two shades whiter. If you are interested in or have need of this optimal toothbrush, we have a supply of Sonicare toothbrushes in the office for our patients’ convenience.
Do you have questions about how to properly brush and care for your teeth? Would you like to know which toothbrush is the best for you? If you have any questions about how to care for your teeth and gums, please call us today at (630) 369-5225.
Celebrate National Toothbrush Day with a healthy smile!
