Importance of Using Soft Toothbrushes

Posted on 6/7/2021 by Betsy Hoos
You know the importance of good oral hygiene, but did you know that the type of toothbrush you use can affect your dental health? People have different preferences when it comes to the type of toothbrush, such as medium or hard brushes, with the notion that they will clean debris and remove plaque more effectively. However, that is not the case. Hard toothbrushes can be harmful to your teeth. We recommend that you use soft toothbrushes for effective cleaning. Benefits of a Soft Toothbrush There many benefits of using a soft toothbrush to brush your teeth. We recommend that you use a soft toothbrush with nylon bristles. This is because nylon bristles can reduce the stress on the gums or teeth, maintaining good oral health. Using a soft toothbrush makes it challenging to brush your teeth too hard. Its softness reduces the pressure and impact brushing can have on your teeth. Consequently, it reduces the chances of eroding your teeth' enamel. Soft toothbrushes are also gentle on your gums. You are less likely to damage your gums when using a soft toothbrush. Its soft bristles gently brush your gums and only remove the unwanted bacteria. A hard toothbrush can damage the surface of your gum, which leads to bleeding. Soft toothbrushes also prevent the exposure of tooth roots. By regularly brushing away the gum, the root of your tooth risks exposure. This can lead to sensitivity and other related problems. In addition, these brushes have flexible bristles that can curve around gums and teeth. This ensures that your mouth is thoroughly cleaned. A soft toothbrush easily accesses the bacteria hidden in remote areas of your teeth. Soft toothbrushes also help preserve the tooth enamel. Brushing too hard can cause damage to your tooth enamel; this rarely happens when you use a soft toothbrush. It is important to note that the way you brush also contributes to a soft toothbrush's efficiency. Side-to-side vigorous brushing can damage your gums.
