Yes, you most certainly need a toothbrush for your short- and long-term dental care. You also need to know how to use it. While you may feel you’ve got the details of dental hygiene down pat, you may not feel quite so confident about the toothbrushes you select when you shop. Of course, if you feel alone, our Riverside, CA team reminds you that this is a common worry. The lovely news being that your Riverside dentist can quickly help you more easily find your best brush for your smile care.

Everyone Needs A New One…

We remind patients that even if you find the perfect brush, if you’re not replacing it with a brand new version every three to four months, then the brush won’t be able to perform as well as you need it to. So, keep this in mind no matter the model you decide is your favorite, suggests your Riverside dentist.

Everyone Needs Soft Bristles

If it doesn’t have soft bristles, then it’s not worth purchasing for your preventive care!

ADA Acceptance Is Always Worth It

Remember that in your effort to avoid the need for fillings, it’s nice to know you’re using a toothbrush that has already been proven effective! How to figure this out, you wonder? Just take a quick glance at the packages of brushes you’re considering. Those stamped with the ADA (American Dental Association) Seal of Acceptance have already been tested and will do the job.

Size, Shape, Color, And Design Are Personal

The size of your brush, the way it looks, the way it fits in your hand, the way the head works with the shape and size of your mouth, the overall design, and more: These are all details that you can make your own opinions about. The only thing we will remind you of in terms of such particulars is to ensure you feel comfortable and that the brush fits well, so you can thoroughly cleanse your smile. It’s that simple, explains your Riverside dentist!
