3. Go Small

Contrary to popular thought, the smaller the toothbrush the better! This will make brushing easier and will allow you to reach and clean crevics and areas which may be hard to reach with bigger brush heads.

4. Go Jagged

Not just a gimick! Angled bristles and multi level criss cross bristles actually have a function! It allows the brush to adjust between each teeth to make sure it reaches them.
