Your Guide to Optimal Oral Care

Taking care of your teeth is not just about a bright smile; it’s about your overall health. Knowing how to choose the right toothbrush and toothpaste can make a significant difference. At Dentist at Underwood, we understand this better than anyone.

Dr Raj and Dr Raji, our esteemed dentists, emphasise the importance of choosing the right oral care products. Here’s your guide to making the best choices for your dental health.

Understanding Toothbrush Types

  1. Manual vs Electric Toothbrushes
    • Manual Toothbrushes: Affordable and easy to control. Ideal for those who prefer a traditional approach.
    • Electric Toothbrushes: The most efficient for removing plaque when brushing.
  2. Bristle Type
    • Soft bristles are generally recommended, especially if you have sensitive gums or teeth. Dr. Raji notes that harder bristles can damage enamel and gum tissue.
  3. Toothbrush Head Size
    • A smaller head is preferable for better access to all areas of the mouth. This is particularly important in children and those with smaller mouths.

Selecting the Right Toothpaste

Fluoride Toothpaste

Almost all experts agree on using fluoride toothpaste for its ability to fight tooth decay. Dentist at Underwood recommends fluoride toothpaste for most patients.

Sensitivity Toothpaste

If you have sensitive teeth, a toothpaste designed for sensitivity can be a game-changer. Dr Raji often recommends these for patients with discomfort.

Natural Toothpaste

If you prefer natural products, there are many options available. Dr Raj suggests checking for fluoride content even in natural toothpastes.
