Today on Holistic Dentistry we’re talking about how to find the ideal toothbrush for you? One size does not fit all, believe it or not — and there are a multitude of toothbrushes out there!
In this episode, Dr. Sanda shares the history of the toothbrush, as well as its evolution into more sustainable, environmentally-friendly models. Then, we detail questions to ask yourself when choosing a toothbrush, including the benefit of specific teeth brushing techniques.
Lastly, we cover different types of toothbrush shapes and models for specific needs, like denture care, gum care and braces. Plus, Dr. Sanda dispels the myth about electric toothbrushes working better than manual. (It really comes down to technique!)
