Daily use of the toothbrush leads toRapid wear of her bristles. Every few months, we are faced with the need to replace the toothbrush, and therefore, we face the question of its right choice. In this article, we will try to reveal all the nuances of choosing the right toothbrush.


When to buy a new toothbrush

A simple toothbrush should be changed every threeMonth - on a mandatory basis, because during this period, if you properly part your teeth, it wears out and a large number of microbes accumulate on it. In addition, if the toothbrush has become unusable in less than three months, it is recommended to change it earlier, without waiting for a three-month period. If you have an infectious disease in your mouth, then in this case it is also recommended to change your toothbrush.

What are toothbrushes?

To date, there are three types of toothbrushes:

  • Simple;

  • Electric;

  • Ultrasound.

Let's take a closer look at all these three types.

Simple brush

A simple brush is easy to use, and stands onOrder is cheaper in comparison with their counterparts. You can brush your teeth with a simple brush at any time, since a battery can not sit in it and you do not need to recharge the battery, because there simply is not. On this, the advantages of simple toothbrushes end.

The disadvantage of a simple toothbrush is thatYou need to produce many more movements to cleanse your teeth well and thoroughly. As a result, it takes much more time, from two to five minutes, which not everyone is willing to do, especially in the morning - when we rush to work or study.

Electric brush

Electric brush is more rationalDevice, as when using it, it takes much less time to brush your teeth. The rotating and vibrating movements of the electric brush clean teeth more qualitatively and effectively than a simple toothbrush. Moreover, an electric toothbrush can lead to less damage to the gums than a simple one. Also, an electric toothbrush excludes damage to the enamel of the teeth. This kind of toothbrushes has a longer service life than simple ones.

Disadvantages of the electric brush is its high price and the need to charge the battery or replace the battery.

Ultrasonic brush

Ultrasonic toothbrushes are comparativelyA new type of toothbrushes. Compared with the number of 40 thousand rpm of the electric toothbrush, ultrasound has 102 million revolutions, which is several tens of times greater than the electrical equivalent. Ultrasonic toothbrushes have an excellent cleaning effect due to the oscillation of the bristles rather than the head of the brush. The ultrasound toothbrush does not damage surrounding tissues, and is also able to "remove" dental plaque. Well, the last advantage - the amount of toothpaste used when brushing your teeth with an ultrasonic brush should be absolutely minimal.

The drawbacks of the ultrasonic brush are, again, the high price and the need for recharging the battery or replacing the batteries.

What kind of brush is better to choose

To say that some type of brush is better, but some kind ofWorse - wrong. But, nevertheless, based on our analysis, we can conclude that the great advantages are the ultrasound brush, so we recommend it to her. If not an ultrasonic brush, then give preference to electrical. If you have an individual intolerance to these two types of brushes, then use a simple one.

How to choose the right brush

When choosing a toothbrush, pay attention to itBristles, it should be soft, so as not to damage the enamel of the teeth and gums, which will cause the gingiva to bleed. The brush should have a multi-level surface and a high bristly head at the end to ensure the best possible cleaning of the teeth.

For children, we recommend choosing special children's brushes, not adults. Bristles of children's brushes must be soft, and the handle is comfortable.
