Picking the Right Toothbrush

Posted .

A toothbrush is just a toothbrush, right? It doesn’t matter what kind you use as long as you’re cleaning your teeth, right?

Well, yes and no. Regularly cleaning your teeth is something everyone needs to do, but doing that with the right toothbrush will ensure your teeth are as clean and healthy as possible. That’s why it’s important to pick the best toothbrush possible, which is almost always an electric one.

Let’s look at why Dr. Lisa Kirshenbaum recommends you use electric toothbrushes.

Regular brushes

Regular toothbrushes are the most common, they’re cheap, and they’ve been getting the job done on cleaning teeth for years now.
The advantage to these brushes is that they’re more affordable, easier to take care of (they don’t require batteries) and when they wear out every three or four months you just buy another new brush and move on. However, they don’t have some of the advantages present with an electric brush.

These brushes clean your teeth in the same method as the brush used by our team here at Dental Excellence of Kennesaw in Kennesaw, Georgia. The round circular motions clean areas of your mouth a regular brush can’t reach, and it cleans more evenly as well. These are the obvious choice for a brush if you’re looking to get the best oral health possible.
