Best Dentist-Recommended Manual Toothbrushes
Brushing your teeth is one the most important parts of anyone’s daily routine. Since oral hygiene is so crucial you may have wondered if you’re using the correct toothbrush. There are a few things to look for when choosing the perfect toothbrush including the ADA Seal of Acceptance. Let’s take a closer look at some of the best manual toothbrushes recommended by dentists so you can make the best decision.
There are certain qualities to take into consideration when choosing a toothbrush. One of the most important details to look into is the bristles. The bristles of the toothbrush should be soft or extra soft to better care for your teeth. Hard bristles can cause abrasions on your enamel or gums eventually leading to sensitivity or even cavities. If you're using a toothbrush with low-quality bristles they can have sharp or jagged edges which will also cause damage to your mouth.
If brushing your teeth too hard has been an issue, there’s a toothbrush that can be your solution. The Radius Source is a manual toothbrush recommended by dentists with a wide massaging head to prevent any damage from occurring. This brush has extremely soft bristles made from vegetable nylon that will prevent bleeding, sensitivity, as well as receding gums. This brush also has a great grip and replacement heads that reduce toothbrush waste by up to 93%.
Oral-B Cross Action
If you're looking for a budget-friendly recommendation from a dentist, the Oral-B Cross Action manual toothbrush is the best option for you. Dentists recommended changing your toothbrush every 4-6 weeks to prevent bristles from wearing out. The Oral-B value pack will allow you to switch out your toothbrush effectively all while staying within your budget. This pack comes with 4 brushes that equal out to just under $2.50 for each brush.
