More and more dentists are recommending that people switch to electric toothbrushes simply because of how much more effective they typically are when compared to traditional brushes.
However, it can be confusing to know what type of toothbrush is best. There are many different shapes that you can turn to when you want a clean mouth. If you are not quite sure which shape is best for you, then it is best to ask us at your next appointment.
The Point of Different Heads for Your Electric Toothbrush
Your electric toothbrush has many different heads to help improve your oral hygiene routine. Some of the heads are to help you brush different parts of your mouth, while others are meant to help you floss. There are sensitive teeth heads that you can use on areas of your mouth that are more prone to problems or pain.
There are also more robust heads that help you get down and dirty when it comes to brushing your entire mouth. Their bristles should be soft (unless we told you to try something else), no matter what shape or type of head you use.
Flossing heads often have paddles that are small and move around when you turn the toothbrush on, or strings that vibrate back and forth. These are meant to get between your teeth a bit better, and can be a great resource for people who struggle floss manually.
If you are not sure what option is best for your mouth, ask us. We love answering questions like this because it shows a real attention to detail when it comes to your teeth. The more interest you take in helping promote a healthy mouth, the more we can do to help you achieve that goal.
