What sort of brush should I use for brushing my teeth?

In terms of electric versus manual toothbrushes, we generally recommend an electric toothbrush for the best results. When used correctly, both electric and manual toothbrushes do the job, but most people have better results when using an electric toothbrush as it is smaller and does a lot of the work for you.

Either way, it is best to use a soft toothbrush or toothbrush head without rubber wings. Hard or medium brushes can be too abrasive and wear the enamel off the teeth, which may give you sensitivity. Additionally, abrasive toothbrushes may cause the gums to recede.

If you have questions about our recommendations for your specific situation, let us know. We are happy to provide you with information on the best toothbrushing methods, so you get the most out of your oral hygiene routine.
