London dentists help patients to choose the best tooth brush for them

With such a startling array of tooth brushes on offer in every super market and pharmacy it can be very confusing if you are trying to choose which one to buy. Many of them advertise different properties and qualities claiming to make them better and more effective than their commercial rivals. For a simple guide, explaining some of the basic things to bear in mind when buying a tooth brush, read on.
As you will be using your tooth brush at least twice every single day, it is important that you choose one that is comfortable to hold in your hand. The handle shouldn’t be too big or too small and have an adequate grip so that it won’t slip out of your grasp. The colour is not important unless you are buying for an infant and feel that a certain colour might give them an added incentive to brush their teeth.
The bristles ought to be firm and stout on a head that is not too larger; remember that you want the brush to reach into all corners of your mouth and an especially big head will be difficult to manoeuvre adequately. Many dentists advise their patients now to use electric tooth brushes because of the increased cleaning ability available from the vibrating head. Try and get one with a small head that acts in a rotating motion. You will still need to replace these heads as the bristles get worn down just like on a manual brush.
Don’t be shy about asking your London dentist for advice about brushes. With such a variety on the market it is worth getting some tips from the experts about this matter.
