What should I consider when buying a toothbrush from the store?

 
There are a few recommendations that our Dubai dentist can offer when looking for the proper toothbrush:
 
  • soft-bristled toothbrushes are suggested by any doctor because they can protect the gum tissues;
  • electric toothbrushes can remove even better the plaque and tartar compared to the traditional ones;
  • the size of the toothbrush matters only if it comes with complete comfort;
  • make sure it has a rippled head for cleaning the tongue too.
 

Types of toothbrushes

 
Trimmed or flat, rectangular or tapered, with a flexible neck or not, each type of toothbrush is meant to suit most of the dental needs in matters of cleaning. It is important to know that a good toothbrush is the one that offers complete control even to non-reachable places in the mouth. Make sure you read the instructions and the information on the label before purchasing a toothbrush. Your dentist in Dubai will know what to propose you when choosing a toothbrush because he/she knows the status of your teeth, and therefore, your dental needs in terms of oral hygiene.
 

Do I need to change the toothbrush often?

 
Yes, it is highly recommended to change the toothbrush once in three months and make sure you are protecting the denture this way. The first signs of wear should be sufficient for you to understand that it is time to replace the toothbrush with a new one. It is a known fact that your toothbrush can collect microbes and germs, even if it is well washed, and especially if you had flu. Make no compromises in this case and change the toothbrush if you want to protect your teeth as much as possible.
