With all the different options available, choosing the best kind of toothbrush to use can be overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be! Your Sacramento dentist at Midtown Dental will guide you and explain your best options.
What is the best kind of toothbrush to use?
When it comes to toothbrushes, your options may seem endless. They often come in all different sizes, shapes, colors and strengths. Overall, there are two main categories, traditional manual toothbrushes and electric toothbrushes. They can both be very effective if used properly and regularly.
In most cases, a soft-bristled brush is best for removing plaque and debris from your teeth. Small-headed brushes are also preferable, since they can better reach all areas of the mouth, including hard-to-reach back teeth. If you are using a manual toothbrush, our Sacramento dentists recommend a soft-bristled brush.
One of the best and easiest ways to improve you brushing is to use an electric toothbrush. Unlike a manual brush, an electric brush does all the work for you. Electric toothbrushes make your brushing technique significantly more effective—resulting in fewer opportunities for tooth decay. With a manual toothbrush, it also very to lose track of time. Electric toothbrushes include two-minute timers that take you through this routine, ensuring you get a complete clean every time you brush.
At Midtown Dental in Sacramento, we make it easy for you to get your new electric tooth brush. We sell an entire Crest Oral B Electric Toothbrush kit, complete with an electric toothbrush, head, toothpaste, floss and mouthwash right in our office. We even have great electronic toothbrush options for kids, a complete kit with fun themes for children. Our toothbrush kits are the latest from Oral-B and can only be purchased through a dentist.

For years I had ben wondering what toothbrush to use, I had purchased a panasonic, oral-b, and sonicare. After one of my dental cleaning appointments Dr. Apekian helped me figure out the best toothbrush to use because I have sensitive gums. Thanks!!
