Many of the toothbrush siting their own reason why they are the best due to their bend and flex head to varying lengths of bristles. Certainly some of the toothbrushes available look very high tech but are they better then the more basic brushes? The fact is that is not necessarily the case.

Toothbrushes are usually not subjected to rigorous clinical trials. So there is no actual proof that one is better than next.    So what should you know about picking out a toothbrush that best for you? Consider things like comfort and how well the tooth brush reaches your back teeth. Toothbrushes come in different shapes so you are trying to find a toothbrush that fits your mouth and brush your teeth.  The brush should allow for you to to reach even the teeth at the very back of your mouth.  Try to stay with toothbrush that have “soft” or “extra soft” bristles.  Hard bristles increase the risk of harming gums when you brush.  Buy a toothbrush that has the seal of acceptance from the American Dental Association (ADA) The ADA seal shows that the dental product as been tested by the ADA and has met their standards.
