What type of toothbrush should I buy?
DateTime:2008-8-17 10:18:21  
With so many shapes, sizes and styles of toothbrushes on the market, deciding which toothbrush to buy can be confusing. Here's what you should look for:
- Most dental professionals agree that a soft-bristled toothbrush is best for removing plaque and debris from your teeth. Small-headed toothbrushes are also preferable, since they can better reach all areas of the mouth, including hard-to-reach back teeth.
- When it comes to the type of toothbrush handle (such as non-slip grip or flexible neck), shape of the head (tapered or rectangular), and style of toothbrush bristles (such as rippled, flat or trimmed to a dome shape), pick whatever is most comfortable for you.
- The best toothbrush is one that fits your mouth and allows you to reach all teeth easily.
- For many, a powered toothbrush is a good alternative. A powered toothbrush can do a better job of cleaning teeth, particularly for those who have difficulty brushing or who have limited manual dexterity.
