It is better to prevent tooth and gum problems than to cure them. That is why it is so important to brush your teeth with a toothbrush suitable for your teeth: should you choose a hard or soft toothbrush? With the wide range of toothbrushes available, choosing the right one is not so easy. You choose a good toothbrush based on your oral care needs, the right type of brush and, of course, your personal preferences.
There are different types of bristles: soft, medium and hard/sturdy. If you have healthy teeth, you can choose medium or soft. Dentists and dental hygienists usually recommend the soft variety, as hard bristles can damage your gums and enamel. For really good cleaning between the teeth and under the gum line, toothbrushes with soft bristles and a fine tip are excellent.
Soft Nano Toothbrush
The bristles of soft and hard toothbrushes are made of the same material. The difference is in the thickness of the bristles. In soft brushes, they are thinner. As a result, the toothbrush not only feels softer, but also bends easily with you as you brush your teeth.
People with sensitive teeth and gums often choose the soft variety. This is because a soft toothbrush offers less resistance and thus protects your gums. Do your gums bleed easily when brushing? Then a soft toothbrush can also help. Always rinse a toothbrush thoroughly. If you don’t, the bristles will become hard over time.
People often choose a hard brush head thinking that such a hard brush will help you remove more and better plaque. However, using such a hard brush can also damage your gums. This can cause your gums to recede and become exposed.
Not every tooth is suitable for using a hard toothbrush. In addition, soft toothbrushes clean just as well. In general, it is therefore better to brush your teeth with a soft(er ) toothbrush that has a small brush head.
If you brush too hard or press too hard on your toothbrush, the bristles of your toothbrush can damage your gums. So don’t. What also helps with good oral hygiene is to change your toothbrush regularly. Do you see discolouration on your toothbrush or are the bristles separating? Then it’s time to replace your toothbrush. By brushing properly and replacing your toothbrush four times a year, you are definitely contributing to the health of your mouth.
If you don’t know which is the best toothbrush for you, you can of course ask your dentist or dental hygienist for advice, or check Fleeck. There you can find toothbrushes for different needs, such as the bamboo toothbrush with fine and soft bristles. Complete your dental care with Fleeck’s toothpastes and other oral care products such as toothpaste tablets, scalers, dental floss, water floss, oil extraction and tongue scrapers.
