A good toothbrush fights off plaque and gum disease, but how do you judge what makes a toothbrush good? When there are options between bristle hardness and manual and electric toothbrushes, it can get pretty confusing.
Thankfully there’ve been enough studies down to help us understand the benefits of hard or soft bristles, or whether an electric or manual toothbrush is right for us. Each option has their share of pros and cons but the most important aspect of brushing is having a good technique. Without the proper technique, even the most expensive toothbrush won’t be able to get the job done right.
Before you pick up any old random toothbrush from off the shelf, consider what your teeth need in terms of a new toothbrush first.
