You can't overestimate the importance of good dental hygiene -- not only for dental health but for your overall wellbeing. Our dentists at toothbrushSeaview Dental Arts can perform a variety of procedures to improve your oral health. From the time we're young, we're taught that brushing our teeth is one of the best ways to keep our teeth healthy. But which toothbrush is best?

Size. For most individuals, a brush head that is one-inch tall and a half-inch wide will be the most effective and easiest to use. The brush you use should have a long handle so you can hold it comfortably in your hand. The best brush for you should allow you easy access to all areas of your teeth.

Bristle variety. For most people, a soft-bristled brush will be the safest and most comfortable choice. If you brush your teeth too vigorously, hard-bristled and medium-bristled brushes could damage your tooth enamel.

Likability. The best brush for you is going to be the one you are most likely to use -- and use well. Some individuals find an electric toothbrush easier to use to clean all tooth surfaces. Other individuals may not like the vibrating feeling of an electric toothbrush. If you enjoy using your toothbrush, you're more likely to brush for the recommended length of time.

Expert recommendation. To ensure your brush has undergone rigorous quality control tests for safety and effectiveness, ask your hygienist or dentist here at Seaview Dental Arts for a recommendation. Or look for a brush that has earned the ADA Seal of Approval. Brushes bearing the seal must prove through clinical trials that the brush is safe for use on the tissues of the teeth and mouth.

Cost. Although there are some affordable electric toothbrush options being sold, powered toothbrushes cost more than manual toothbrushes. Of course, if using a powered brush helps you keep your teeth cleaner, you may make up for the expense with a reduction in dental bills.

Taking good care of your teeth is a worthy goal in and of itself. Call Seaview Dental Arts in Galloway, NJ at (609) 652-9020 right now to book your dental appointment. Your smile and health are worth it!
