What's the Best Toothbrush for Oral Health?
Posted on 03/01/2018

unnamed (1)We get a lot of questions from patients about how to keep their teeth clean, and one of the most common subjects is how to pick the "best" toothbrush for oral health. We love this question, as it shows a proactive mindset towards oral health—something that's great for healthy teeth and a healthy smile. Although you can use just about any toothbrush to keep your teeth clean and healthy, we’ve compiled a few of our favorites to help you find the right toothbrush for you.

Our Top 3 Favorite Toothbrushes

Colgate Plus Bi-Level

While it's not the prettiest or fanciest toothbrush in the world, you can't go wrong with a good bi-level toothbrush, and Colgate's is an excellent choice. The brush is made with soft bristles at two levels, allowing even cleaning around corners and crevices of the teeth. With conscientious and regular use, a bi-level can keep your teeth perfectly strong and healthy.

Oral-B CrossAction Pro-Health Soft

For more precision cleaning, it may be a good idea to get a toothbrush with a smaller head. This makes it easier to maneuver the brush into the tight spaces around teeth, helping to remove food and plaque from even the toughest locations. For that kind of precision, Oral-B's CrossAction ProHealth Soft Toothbrush is an excellent choice.

Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart Electric Toothbrush

You can think of this like the Ferrari of toothbrushes—it may not be necessary, but it seriously works. The Sonicare Diamond is an electric toothbrush that comes with five different brushing modes including whitening and gum care, and it also includes an automatic timer that stops after you've brushed for two minutes. For someone looking for the very best in a toothbrush, the Sonicare Diamond can't be beaten. If you don’t want to splurge for the Sonicare Diamond, there are other models of Sonicare electric toothbrushes that are still very effective but won’t break the bank.
