Does Your Toothbrush Type Really Matter?

By Brianne Jones, RDH

What Type Of Toothbrush Is Recommended?

There are so many different types of toothbrushes to choose from so how do you know which toothbrush is the right one for you? Soft-bristled toothbrushes are always best as medium or hard-bristled toothbrushes can damage your tooth enamel and gums. Stick to soft-bristled brushes for your kiddos teeth and save the hard-bristled brushes for deep scrubbing around the house! 

Often times, we get questions on whether parents should invest in an electric toothbrush for their child. The answer is...IT'S UP TO YOU! Honestly, If you're considering brushing your child's teeth with an electric toothbrush, wait until your child is at least three years old. If they are older, sometimes the electric Spinbrushes are fun and can help motivate a child to continue brushing habits, but are not necessary to keep those chompers cavity free! 

Happy Brushing!
