14 August 2015, Dabur Dental Team

Many of us often wonder about how to take care of teeth. More often than not we underestimate the role that our toothbrush plays in all this. Thus, given below is your perfect toothbrush guide that will teach you how to take care of teeth and maintain a healthy smile.


  1. Understand that size matters
    An ideal toothbrush should have a long enough handle so you can comfortably hold it in your hand. While choosing a toothbrush, just remember that your toothbrush should have a convenient head that would allow you easy access to all the surfaces of your teeth. Half-inch wide and one-inch tall is an ideal toothbrush head size for most adults. Small-headed brushes are preferred since they can reach all areas of the mouth better, including hard-to-reach back teeth. Larger toothbrush heads are usually difficult to manoeuvre and thus ineffective.
  2. Pay attention to the bristle variety
    For the vast majority of people, a soft-bristled toothbrush will be the more comfortable and the safest choice. Most dental professionals agree that a soft-bristled brush is best for removing plaque and debris from your teeth. Medium and hard bristled brushes could actually damage the gums, root surface, and protective tooth enamel, if you brush vigorously or you have weak teeth. Also, for extra protection and dental care, be sure the bristles on the toothbrush you select have rounded tips.
  3. Always take the expert’s recommendation
    Ask your dentist to suggest you a toothbrush that has undergone rigorous quality control tests for cleaning effectiveness and safety and that can keep you safe from dental problems. As per all experts, a good toothbrush is one that will have bristles that are durable and have safe tips, the handle will withstand normal use and the toothbrush will effectively reduce plaque build-up and ensure proper dental care.
And last but not the least, make sure you give your teeth proper dental care by brushing it properly with the right toothbrush, also use a ayurvedic toothpaste like Meswak for total oral care.

Maintain proper oral hygiene and choose the right toothpaste to keep all dental problems away.
