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

In terms of electric versus manual toothbrushes, it is shown that both do the same job if used correctly, however, most people have better results when using an electric toothbrush as it is smaller and does a lot of the work for you. It is best to use a soft toothbrush or toothbrush head without rubber wings as hard or medium brushes can be abrasive and wear the enamel off the teeth, as well as possibly causing recession of the gums, that may give you sensitivity.
