Posted on 5/22/2023 by Hilton Israelson, DDS
What Type Of Toothbrush And Toothpaste Should I UseKeeping your mouth and gums healthy needs daily brushing. When picking toothbrushes and toothpaste for your daily oral routine, finding the right ones can help a lot. It helps improve your brushing experience at home. Additionally, it averts damage to the sensitive teeth' enamel and gum tissue. That being said, here are the kinds of toothbrushes and toothpaste you should use.

Soft-bristle Toothbrush

With soft bristles, it can be easier and less likely to damage your teeth' enamel or gums even if you brush too hard. However, don't brush too aggressively or hard, because it will damage the gum tissue and enamel, regardless of the bristles of the brush.

Proper-fitting Toothbrushes

You need to get a toothbrush that fits your mouth. You don't want one that is too big for the mouth. Also, you can consider electric toothbrushes if you have dexterity issues.

Flouride Toothpaste

Most toothpaste brands contain fluoride that helps re-mineralize teeth and counteracts the damage caused by the acids to which the teeth are constantly exposed. It works by strengthening tooth enamel, making your teeth more resistant to decay.

Whitening Toothpaste

Teeth whitening toothpaste are effective for warding off surface stains from the teeth, such as those caused by coffee or smoking. Whitening toothpaste is used to preserve teeth's appearance while also strengthening and reinforcing enamel.

Smokers Toothpaste

Smokers are highly susceptible to various dental dilemmas like cavities, plaque build-up, bad breath, and oral infections. The nicotine and tar in cigarettes leave stubborn stains on the teeth' surfaces.

For smokers, the only trick is to break the habit. Tobacco products are perilous to your overall health. However, you can lower the odds of developing gum disease and reduce staining by using proper smoker's toothpaste and mouthwash.

Smokers' toothpaste contains stronger abrasives as compared to regular fluoridated toothpaste to fight against dark stains caused by frequent tobacco usage. Moreover, it helps in mouth freshening to beat bad breath. Contact us now for your oral care and helpful tips to maintain healthy smiles!
