Do you have what you need to keep your smile healthy and clean? Your toothbrush is a critical factor in your oral health care. In fact, your toothbrush is one of the most crucial steps in cleaning your teeth each day. You should brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes each time for a healthy smile. As a result, choosing the right toothbrush is vital for your smile.

At Stanley Hometown Dentistry LLC, our dentist is happy to help you understand the importance of brushing your teeth and choosing the right toothbrush. That is why our team is happy to describe your different toothbrush options to help you choose the right one for you.

Here are your options for choosing a toothbrush:

Electric toothbrushes
Electric toothbrushes are newer in the dental world. Typically, electric toothbrushes have more brushing power, and the bristles rotate faster around each individual tooth than a manual toothbrush. Most electric toothbrushes also have a timer on them to tell you how long you have brushed each section of your mouth as well as when your two minutes are up. Electric toothbrushes are popular because they provide a deep clean and are easy to use, especially for those who find it more difficult to use a manual toothbrush.

Manual toothbrushes
Manual toothbrushes are more traditional and have been trusted to clean teeth for many years. By using a manual toothbrush, you have more control of where you place your brush as well as the angle around your teeth. This type of toothbrush is easy to use, and it can effectively clean your teeth, especially when you make sure to brush for the full two minutes, twice a day. Manual toothbrushes are excellent for those who like soft bristles, and who want to guide the toothbrush themselves.

No matter which of these two toothbrush options you choose for cleaning your teeth, you are helping to keep your teeth in excellent health for years to come.
