The most important dental appliance you will use
throughout your life to help remove food and
plaque from your teeth is your toothbrush.

3
However, finding the best one to match your
particular dental needs can be rather
challenging. If you were to browse the aisle at
your local pharmacy or other major retailer,

you will quickly see numerous types and styles of
toothbrushes on display. In addition, you have
the option to choose from manual and battery
operated models!

5
How do you select the right one? The first place
to begin is to consult with a family dentist in
Toronto, like Dr. Carol Waldman.

6
Your dentist is able to make a determination,
based upon your current brushing patterns, what
type of brush you need.

7
For instance, they will look for damage along the
gum line and to the tooths enamel surface caused
from brushing too hard, along with other
observations.

8
Using the recommendation from your dentist, there
are a few other aspects to consider including

9
1. Type of Bristles on the Toothbrush There
are hard, medium and soft bristles on manual and
battery operate toothbrushes
www.carolwaldmandentistry.ca

10
Most dentists will only recommend soft bristles
or all their patients, as hard bristles are too
abrasive and can cause damage to the tooth
structure or to the gums.

11
Even though the bristles are soft, they are still
effective at removing food and plaque from the
teeth and reduce the likelihood of causing
accidental damage.

12
In addition, you should look for models that have
rounded bristles on their ends.

2. The Length of the Toothbrush Handle The
toothbrush should be easy to hold and feel
comfortable in your hand.
www.carolwaldmandentistry.ca

14
There are different length toothbrush handles for
children and people of all ages. Some also offer
added gripping abilities, like for people who
suffer from arthritis.

3. The Size of the Head of the Toothbrush The
head is the area that has the bristles on it.
www.carolwaldmandentistry.ca
416.445.6000
16
You want to choose one that fits correctly inside
your mouth and makes it easy to reach all of your
teeth.
www.carolwaldmandentistry.ca
416.445.6000
17
If the head is too big, it can make it difficult
to reach the back molars and those
hard-to-reach areas.
www.carolwaldmandentistry.ca
416.445.6000
18
A brush head that covers only one-two teeth are
ideal and most are easily used accurately.
www.carolwaldmandentistry.ca
416.445.6000
19
The bigger head brushes that you see on the
pharmacy shelves are actually designed for
brushing dentures instead of brushing teeth

20
Battery Operated or Manual? When deciding
between battery operated and manual models, it
really comes down to your own personal
preferences.
www.carolwaldmandentistry.ca
416.445.6000
21
However, there are certain situations where a
battery operated model can be beneficial. Most
battery operated brushes operate at a sonic or
just below sonic level.

22
This makes for more effective brushing and can
reduce hand strain as less energy is required for
brushing thoroughly.

23
Just remember to brush all the surfaces of your
teeth inside, outside and biting surfaces and
dont forget the back of the last teeth in your
mouth.
