Bio Statement To have your teeth white throughout the years means taking care of them from day one. Choosing to take of your teeth when you 65 years old means a lot of work if even with not sure that would be possible. One key to keeping those whites white is not only using the right toothpaste but using the right toothbrush.

In the market today you lots of flashy brushes, colors, funky styles etc... The main thing is not to get all sucked in to the styles and colors the main thing you want to focus on is function. When speaking to dentists you'll notice today that the trend is leaning towards electronic brushes. The fact of the matter is in term of brushing they do a much better job. Electronic brushes range in price from 25 bucks all the way up to 200.

Whatever you choose first and foremost the key is the bristles. Weather is electronic or manual you need to choose one with soft bristles. Harsh bristles will cause gum recession and will actually damage enamel. Soft bristle brushes typically get into the crevices between the teeth much better that hard ones. To best clean all the teeth in your mouth you also want to make sure you choose a brush with a sized head that will allow you get all the way in the back of your mouth to get the ones in the way back. Obviously you also want to make sure you choose a brush with a decent handle, not too small so it slips around in your hand but not too big so that you can't maneuver the brush.

Timing of brush replacement is another important factor. Typically after 3 months a brush looses it's cleaning power. After 3 months the bristles loose there stiffness and thus cleaning power. Note that this is not a hard and fast rule, if upon inspection you notice the bristles are all over the place and not staying in place it's time for a replacement brush. Also pay attention to coloring if it's faded or if you had any sickness while your brushing it's a good idea to replace the brush or if electronic the brush head.

For manual brushes which are relatively cheap you'll have to get a random sampling and see which ones works and feels the best. When it comes to electronic brushes you'll want to do some consumer research to see which ones hold up the best and give you the most value for your dollar.
