To help you have the best oral hygiene possible, our Bear River Dental dental team is happy to give you the toothbrush tips you need to find the best tool for your smile! While you are at the store searching for a tooth-brushing tool, we recommend looking for the following characteristics in the toothbrush:

· Soft bristles: Many people believe that it’s best to have a toothbrush with hard bristles, but that is not the case. Hard bristles tend to irritate and harm the gums, making them move away from the teeth and exposing the tooth roots. This could cause extreme tooth sensitivity. So, the best way to go is with soft bristles.

· A comfortable toothbrush head: We recommend choosing a toothbrush that has a head about 1 inch long and ½ inch wide. This should be big enough to cover two teeth at a time. The more comfortable the toothbrush is in your mouth, the better.

· A motivating design and model: If you’re motivated to brush with a certain type of toothbrush, we recommend using it. It can be an electric toothbrush or a manual toothbrush that has superhero characters on it. Either way, as long as you enjoy brushing, you are on the right track.
