The Best Toothbrushes For Gum Health

Do you give much thought to that toothbrush near your bathroom sink? Because a toothbrush also acts as a gum brush, it is important to consider its brushing capabilities for both, when choosing a brush that’s best for your complete oral health. Gum health is imperative for keeping your mouth healthy, and an electric toothbrush may offer you an advantage against receding gums and gum disease. If electric isn’t for you, several soft-bristled, non-electric versions can also do the trick. At Scottsdale Dental Excellence, serving Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Cave Creek, and Phoenix, we care about your dental health. That’s one reason we’re taking the time to make a few suggestions on your choice of toothbrush.

How to Choose?

There are a multitude of choices on the market. From Sonicare to Oral B, check out these five recommended electric toothbrushes for helping to prevent receding gums.

When Should I Make the Switch?

If you haven’t already, the time to make the switch is now, in order to protect your gums. Regular toothbrushes can make your gums bleed from brushing too hard and increase your chances for a receding gum line. When left untreated, receding gums can speed up tooth decay and bone loss because of bacteria that forms in the gums.
