One of your most important tools in the fight for good dental health will be your toothbrush. The toothbrush does not get much attention, but it plays a vital role in your oral health. Picking the right toothbrush will have a huge impact on the health of your teeth and mouth. When you visit the dentist in Yonkers, NY, you will be able to discuss your toothbrush needs with Dr. Fedele Vero, Dr. Christine Fumo, or Dr. Alec Ganci. Keep reading to learn more. 

Does Your Toothbrush Really Matter?

The type of toothbrush you choose will have an impact on the health and cleanliness of your teeth. If you have the wrong type of brush or the wrong size brush, you will not be able to achieve the deep-down clean your teeth need. 

It is also important to remember to replace your toothbrush every six months. A good rule of thumb to use is to replace your toothbrush following your six-month dental exam.

What Type of Brush Is Best?

Most dentists recommend an electric toothbrush. These types of brushes will cover more surface area of your teeth than a manual brush. This enables the brush to remove more food and bacteria from your teeth. Being able to get a deep-down clean on a daily basis will prevent tooth decay and gum disease. 

If you don't want to use an electric toothbrush, you should make sure you choose a brush that is sized properly to your mouth. For instance, small children should not use adult-sized toothbrushes. 

You will also want to choose a bristle that is appropriate for your gums. If you have very sensitive gums, you may need to avoid a stiff-bristled toothbrush. You will want to discuss with your dentist in Yonkers, NY which type of bristle is right for your particular mouth.
