What’s the Right Toothbrush For You?

Dental hygiene is one of the most important things every adult should observe. On top of brushing your teeth at least twice a day, it is also essential to floss regularly and schedule dental visits to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy and in tip-top shape.

Aside from establishing a teeth whitening routine, it’s also critical to ensure that you’re backed up with the right equipment, starting off with the right toothbrush. Yes, you heard us correctly. The type of toothbrush you use plays an important role in keeping your teeth clean.

Here, we’ve lined up some factors that you should consider when choosing the right toothbrush for yourself:


Having a good toothbrush starts with the right toothbrush head size that easily access the surface of your teeth. A too big toothbrush might be uncomfortable, while using a smaller head won’t be able to clean your teeth entirely. Using a half-inch or an inch-long size of a toothbrush head is ideal enough to clean hard-to-reach areas of your mouth.


Never compromise quality for price. People may be attracted to an almost-too-good-to-be-true type of description from an unknown toothbrush brand, but the catch is, it may come from a manufacturer who didn’t go by safety or efficacy measures. Choosing the one that is reliable and made by well-known brands might be more expensive but at least these products are guaranteed, and dentist-approved.


It may be the least to remember but it is also important to consider the handle of the toothbrush. Always make sure that it fits your hand comfortably as you use it.


There are three types of toothbrush bristles to choose from: soft, medium, and hard nylon. The soft-bristled toothbrush is often what many would prefer because of its gentle bristles, especially for those with sensitive teeth and gums. While medium and hard nylon bristles are less preferred as it may cause damage to your gums, root surface, or the tooth enamel itself.
