A toothbrush whether it be electric or manual does not come one size fits all. Some are labeled “adult” and “child” but that doesn’t necessarily apply in every case. It’s important to find a toothbrush that fits your mouth and is comfortable to use, whatever the product label says.
People with a debilitating physical condition such as arthritis or palsy may find it easier to use an electric brush. Many are designed with a signaling device to let the user know when the recommended two minutes have passed, children really like this feature.
The only real defining factor for a quality toothpaste is that it contains a sufficient amount of fluoride. If a cavity is spotted while it is contained in the tooth’s outer layer the enamel may actually remineralize if the patient has followed a strict regimen of brushing with a fluoride toothpaste. Dentists can provide extra strength fluoride formulas for those patients who are at higher risk.
If you have been diagnosed with gingivitis which is the early stage of gum disease, your dentist may advise that you could benefit by using an antibacterial toothpaste. Whitening toothpaste is formulated to remove superficial tooth stains caused by the foods or drinks that we consume. There are also toothpastes made especially to ease the discomfort of extreme sensitivity.
