Do you have a hard time choosing between a soft-bristled toothbrush and a hard-bristled toothbrush? If so, you have come to the right blog. Our dentist, Dr. Peter McPherson, is happy to tell you all about these toothbrushes and how they affect you so you can choose the right tool for your teeth, gums, and smile.

Obviously, a soft-bristled toothbrush has soft bristles and a hard-bristled toothbrush has hard bristles. The soft bristles effectively clean the smile. In fact, it has been proven that the soft bristles actually provide a better cleaning job. This is because the soft bristles are flexible, which helps them bend and clean spots the hard bristles can’t reach.

Soft bristles are gentle with the teeth and gums while hard bristles are a little harder. It’s important to be gentle with the smile because if you’re not, you can wear away the outer shell of the teeth and make your gums recede, which can promote tooth sensitivity and create an unappealing smile.
