Hard or soft toothbrushes?
Patients often ask me what type of toothbrush to use. I always recommend a soft bristle brush. To remove the germs that cause problems in the mouth, all you need is a soft bristle brush. Hard bristle brushes can actually damage your teeth and gums. I have never met a dentist or dental hygienist who recommended a hard bristle brush.
So if you have a hard bristle tooth brush, use it to clean the grout in your bathroom and switch to a soft bristle one!
