Choosing the right toothbrush for your smile could be a tricky thing for many. If that is the case for you, our Phillips Ranch - Family & Cosmetic Dentistry team is here to help! As you search the oral hygiene aisle at the store, we recommend choosing a toothbrush that has the following characteristics:

· Soft bristles: Soft bristles safely and effectively clean each chomper and also care for your gums while you do so. It’s very important to keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape while you brush, which is why a soft-bristled toothbrush is your best option.

· A comfortable toothbrush head: It’s tough to brush your teeth when the head of the toothbrush is too big, which is why we recommend choosing a brush that has a head about 1 inch long and ½ inch wide. The head should cover about two teeth at a time.

· A motivating design or model: The more motivated you are to brush, the better. So, if an electric toothbrush or a manual superhero toothbrush motivates you to brush, please feel free to use it as often as you would like.
