If you are serious about keeping your teeth and gums as healthy as possible, you should be brushing and flossing your teeth every day. You should brush your teeth after every meal, and you should floss once each day. You also wonder what is the best toothbrush and what is the best water flosser to use. There are no hard and fast answers because every person has different needs and here are
Buying the best water flosser
1.The teeth spacing
When you want to choose the right sort of water flosser, you need to consider whether your teeth are very tightly spaced together. When the teeth are spaced together very tightly, it can be difficult to get water flosser into the space between the teeth. If you find that water flosser can easily be worked into any of the spaces between your teeth, it will not matter very much what kind of water flosser you use.
If it is difficult to work the water flosser into the spaces between your teeth, you must use a very strong water flosser that is very fine. The best floss for tightly spaced teeth is waxed and will not shred.
2.Kind of Toothbrush to floss with
Having a fairly small mouth, you will want to have a small toothbrush that is easy to control when flossing. A toothbrush that has a large head will feel very uncomfortable to you. You should always look for a comfortable grip on the handle, so the toothbrush does not slip around in your mouth.
If it is difficult for you to clean out the back teeth, look for a toothbrush that is slightly angled. A toothbrush that has very large tufts at the end can clean your back teeth more easily. Most dentists recommend soft bristles on a toothbrush. Very hard bristles can hurt your gums and may scratch the enamel of your teeth during flossing
3.The rate of toothbrush to floss
You may have wondered whether a manual toothbrush or electric toothbrush is better for your flossing needs. Dentists often say that it does not matter whether the toothbrush is manual or electric even if spend at least two minutes brushing your teeth after a meal.
A sonic toothbrush is powered by an electric motor. A sonic toothbrush will vibrate at least 30,000 times a minute while flossing and can help to remove the plaque and bacteria from your teeth much more effectively than a regular electric toothbrush.
