Here’s how to choose the best brush head for your teeth!

To keep our mouths and teeth in optimal health, it is important to brush our teeth regularly. However, there are different ways to brush your teeth and clean your brush. For instance, you can use a manual toothbrush, but you can also use an electric toothbrush. The advantage of the electric sonic toothbrush is that it manages to clean teeth much better. It gets to places that are not so easy to reach with a manual toothbrush more easily. Moreover, it also moves over the teeth much faster than a manual toothbrush. Unlike a manual toothbrush, the electric toothbrush also needs a brush head. It is very important that you choose this attachment carefully. In this article, we discuss different toothbrush heads and tell you what to look out for when buying an attachment.

Which type of brush head is best for my teeth?

As already mentioned: there are many different types of toothbrush heads. So how do you know which is the best brush head for your teeth? There is no simple answer to this question. After all, every tooth is different and will have different needs! That is why it is important to get to know your teeth. Only then can you make a thoughtful choice about exactly which toothbrush head you need. First of all, it is important to get to know the difference between a rotary toothbrush and a sonic toothbrush.

Rotating toothbrush head vs sonic toothbrush attachment

When you think of an electric toothbrush, you probably think of a rotating, round toothbrush head. This is the so-called rotating head. Yet there is also another variant of the brush attachment: the sonic brush head. Both brush heads require a slightly different brushing technique. So which brush head suits you largely depends on which brushing technique you like.

Difference in shape

The first difference between the two brush heads, is the shape. The rotary brush attachment is often round in shape and encloses the entire tooth, so to speak. The sonic brush head is rather oval to straight in shape, reminiscent of a manual toothbrush.

Difference in brushing motion

There is also a difference in brushing motion between the two. A rotating brush attachment rotates and pulses. These movements sweep away plaque quickly. To thoroughly brush your teeth, it is important to brush each tooth individually. This can feel a bit unnatural at first. A sonic brush head actually makes the same movement as a manual toothbrush, only much faster. The bristles vibrate very quickly, removing plaque thoroughly.

This is how to choose a brush head to suit you

Depending on what your teeth need, you can choose a toothbrush head. Do you have sensitive teeth or gums? Then it’s best to choose a brush with extra-long, soft bristles. If you want a thorough brushing, choose a brush attachment with long bristles. This way, hard-to-reach areas can still be cleaned. A brush head with closely spaced bristles is perfect for polishing and whitening. There are also special brush attachment for braces wearers. These are ideal for optimally cleaning your braces and teeth. Also make sure you change the toothbrush head regularly, about once every 3 months

Frequently asked questions

That depends partly on your teeth, and partly on the brushing technique you prefer. Check what your teeth need and, if necessary, ask your dentist for advice. On that basis, you can choose an attachment.

Both are equally good. Would you like to feel like you are brushing your teeth manually? Then choose an elongated brush head. Otherwise, you can go for a round head.
