First you need to see if you would do better with an electric tooth-brush or a regular one. There are a lot of benefits to having an electric one. You can get a better cleaning done and they can be good for kids. On the other hand you will have to replace the batteries and brush part and there is a cost to buying it in the first place.
Your other option is to buy a regular tooth-brush. You can buy them almost anywhere in any type of color. There really is a variety to choose from. You can have a hard brush, soft or a medium. A lot of dentist will tell you to stick with a soft brush.
You should also know that you should replace your toothbrush often. You don’t want to use the same one past the time that you should. It just starts to get a little gross and sometimes the brush starts to fall apart. It is not a good feeling to have it fall apart in your mouth.
The best thing you can do is head to any store that sells tooth brushes and look and see what they have. It will give you a good idea of what is out there and what you can expect to pay for each one.
If you do buy one and it doesn’t feel right, don’t waste your time with it. Find something else that feels better. You don’t want to worry about using something you don’t like.
Make sure you are brushing your teeth at least twice a day. Sometimes you might have to do it more than that. It just depends on what you are eating and drinking. Often times you will want to brush after you have something with garlic in it or after you drink a cup of coffee.
Picking out a new tooth-brush can also be a lot of fun for your kids. Let them know which brushes they can choose from. Find something that will work well for their age.
Knowing about tooth brushes is a good skill. It will allow you to pick out the perfect one each time. You won’t have to worry about using something that just won’t work for your teeth.
