Too large, too thick, too hard – these are the main characteristics of most toothbrushes. With so many shapes, sizes and styles of toothbrushes on the market, deciding which kind to buy can be confusing. Most dental professionals agree that 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.
The main task of the toothbrush is to remove plaque, and having braces increases the risk of build up. Choosing the right brush is very important and Curaprox have a great Ortho-brush especially designed for use with braces to help keep them nice and clean. You should replace your toothbrush when it begins to show wear, or every three months, whichever comes first.
