Type Of Toothbrush

By: Smileway Dental

Toothbrush is very important for oral health. You should know what type of toothbrush you can use which is right and suit your oral health because it will help you to clean plaque, and food stuck effectively beside can maintain your oral health properly.

There are many designs of toothbrush on the market that you can choose, but they have mainly two types.

1. Normal or manual toothbrush

You can choose many designs from the holder whether itโ€™s long or short. It has different types of bristles which are hard, medium or soft to suit your gum condition in your mouth and maintain oral health. Generally medium and soft bristles are recommended because hard toothbrushes can be traumatic to both tooth and gums if the technique of toothbrush is incorrect.

2. Electric toothbrush

It uses battery to run and requires charging when on low power. You need to push the start button, and then the brush will rotate according to the speed that you set up. Brushing using an electric toothbrush does not require much technique as you will only need to leave the bristles on your teeth while brushing. However, electric toothbrushes may take bit more time and may take some time to get used to compare to manual toothbrushes.

3. Specialized toothbrushes

Specialized toothbrushes are required when patients are facing several dental conditions such as minor spacing between teeth and wisdom tooth that is hard to brush properly. Single tufted brushes can be used to brush wisdom teeth effectively and help prevent decay cavities because these toothbrushes are angulated and can reach further into corners of your mouth. Single tufted brushes can also brush your teeth during braces treatment as their tufts are fine and can enter through the wires to clean teeth efficiently. Interdental brushes can be used to brush small spaces in between teeth to improve oral hygiene and prevent food from getting stuck.

Got a bridge and implant done by Dr Jon this year. Still holding up, looking forward to next and hopefully final treatment for missing tooth. Flexible payment terms and polite staff. Give them a try if you haven’t.

Having great experience so far. The doctor are very attentive and explain things very thoroughly without pushing for unncesssary treatment. The clinic is well lit and very clean๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘. It is on the first and second so it will be a bit hard if you have a bad leg.

Surveyed few dentists before I decided to do my wisdom tooth surgery here. Very good service by Dr Edwin who was very gentle throughout the procedure. Most importantly, it was painless. Had good experience with the follow-up sessions too and hope to receive the same experience in my next visit. The nurses and receptionists are very welcoming and friendly. Thumbs up for the good service and the will definitely come again.
