Different types of Toothbrushes You Should Know About

Posted on 6/21/2021 by Dr. Wendy Spektor
Different types of Toothbrushes You Should Know AboutBrushing is one of the most important aspects of good dental care and hygiene. It not only keeps your teeth clean and healthy but also helps prevent possible dental issues.

However, when it comes to brushing your teeth, your toothbrush plays a very vital role. There are different types of toothbrushes available that cater to specific types of teeth and dental problems.

While most dentists recommend a toothbrush with soft bristles, one should be aware of the types of toothbrushes available. Take a look.

Electric Toothbrush

As the name suggests, electric toothbrushes work with a push of a button as a result of which the head and the bristles rotate and help clean hard-to-reach places.

This type of toothbrush is almost effortless when you are brushing your teeth since all you need to do is press the button and allow the device to do its job.
There are many variations in electric toothbrushes, where some also come with a timer so that that you can time your brushing routine.

Manual Toothbrush

Unlike an electric toothbrush, manual brushes don't come with a button or a rotating head, which means you need to exert your own power in order to brush your teeth.

This toothbrush is commonly found in most homes and is a popular option among most people.

Inter-Dental Brush

This is also known as an 'interproximal brush,' and it comes with a small bristled head in different widths to help you clean between the gaps in your teeth.

When choosing a toothbrush, there are many other factors as well that one needs to consider, such as:
•  bristle hardness
•  bristle pattern
•  handle design
•  shape of the head

If you are having trouble in terms of the type of toothbrush that you should get for yourself, you can ask and to recommend you a nice toothbrush.
