The toothbrush is an instrument to fight against the bacteria in the mouth which causes tooth decay and severe mouth related problems and to clean teeth, gums, and tongue. The structure of the toothbrush consists of closely packed bristles embedded on a handle which makes the cleaning easy even in the area where your fingers can't reach.
Toothbrushes are available in different bristle design, size, color, and style. Some toothbrushes are designed mainly for kids with small in size, attractive colors and cartoon handles which kids love the most.
Soft bristle toothbrush versus hard bristle toothbrush
We need to choose a soft bristle toothbrush over the hard bristle toothbrush. Brushing your teeth with a hard bristle toothbrush wears away the protective enamel and your teeth will become sensitive heat or cold. Brushing your teeth with a hard bristle toothbrush with too much pressure can hurt your gums making them bleed and it can wear away the thin layer of the gum. Soft bristles are the best to brush which helps in removing the plaque and debris from the teeth and also along the gum line. Keeping comfort as the key, a soft bristle toothbrush gives the best comforts for the teeth as well as the gums surrounding the teeth.
