What kind of toothbrush should I buy?

Any toothbrush will work, however, there are certain guidelines you should follow:

  • It should have soft bristles.
  • It should be a size that fits your child’s mouth.  Most toothbrushes have the age recommendation on the toothbrush packaging.
  • Replace your toothbrush every 3 months.
  • If you have gum disease, be sure to replace it every 4-6 weeks.
  • Replace your toothbrush after you have gotten over a cold.
  • Electric toothbrushes have been proven to be more effective. This is typically due to the fact that most electric toothbrushes have timers to increase compliance and the toothbrush spins.  A manual toothbrush can be effective as well, but you must know how to brush properly.  The key is to brush in a circular motion.  We would be happy to show you this technique just call 317-336-8478 (DENTIST).
