How to choose the right toothbrush

Let’s make your smile healthy & more beautiful

You’ll find a large selection of toothbrushes available, both manual and electric. It’s a good idea to choose one that:

  • Soft-bristled brush is best for removing plaque and debris from your teeth.
  • Small-headed brushes are preferable, since they can better reach all areas of the mouth, including hard-to-reach back teeth
  • fits comfortably in your hand(non-slip grip or flexible neck)

Most important thing is brushing your teeth properly at least twice a day.


Adapting Toothbrushes for Special Healthcare Needs

If you have difficulty controlling hand, arm or shoulder movements, here are some ideas on adapting standard toothbrushes:

  • Make the handle bulky with a tennis ball, sponge foam or bicycle grip
  • Lengthen with a stick or rod
  • Bend the handle of the toothbrush
  • Attach to the hand or arm with elastic or Velcro straps or hand brace
  • For those who have difficulty brushing or who have limited manual dexterity, try using an electric toothbrush


How to take care of Your Toothbrush


  • Do not share your toothbrush or use someone else’s toothbrush
  • Do not store in closed containers



  • After brushing, rinse your toothbrush thoroughly with tap water and allow to air-dry
  • Store standing upright without the heads touching , If it is near other toothbrushes
  • Replace your toothbrush/head of electric toothbrush every three to four months or when the bristles look worn and bent
