What is the Best Toothbrush?

You should be brushing your teeth twice a day, for at least two minutes. Before you brush, you should be using good flossing techniques to get out all of the stuck food particles, and after you have brushed and rinsed with water, give your mouth a swish of mouthwash. Your most important tool in this process is your toothbrush, but are you using the right one? We often get asked “What is the best toothbrush?” So today, Jordan Dentistry, your Cumming, GA family dentist, brings you the answer.

Sonicare – The Toothbrush We RecommendSonicare Toothbrush

When it comes down to it, we have to recommend Sonicare as one of the best toothbrushes available. The mechanical, cleaning action of the toothbrush head forces fluid and toothpaste deep between the teeth and below the gum line. Their technology is backed by 175 clinical and lab studies from around the globe. They have a variety of models available for both adults and children so that you can find the toothbrush that is most comfortable for you. The Sonicare toothbrushes also all have two minute timers on them, to make sure that you are getting that full two minutes of scrubbing in each time you brush.

Other Options

Sonicare  toothbrushes are unfortunately, not the cheapest choice on the market, so if you are looking for an option without the hefty price tag, out next option for you would be to choose any other mechanical toothbrush that has a two minute timer. While many people do their twice a day brushing, just to say they did it, they often do not spend the full two minutes scrubbing every surface of the teeth. A mechanical toothbrush helps clean all of the hard to reach places in your mouth, and the timer will make sure you don’t cut your oral health routine short.

If you aren’t ready for either of these options, at least make sure you follow the essential, basic steps to good oral health: floss, brush for two minutes, and wash with mouthwash, everyday, twice a day. And, make sure that you are scheduling your regular dental checkups and cleanings with Jordan Dentistry in Cumming, GA!
