Are you in search of a new toothbrush in Granite Bay, California? If so, make sure to choose one that is safe and effective for your smile. To help you select the right brush, our dentist, Dr. Keven R. Mills, encourages you to keep an eye out for certain characteristics.

The first is soft bristles. Although this type of bristles might sound like a wimpy type, the soft bristles are stronger than you think. They properly clean the teeth and treat the gums right. Unfortunately, there are some bristles that wear the enamel away and irritate the gums. So, make sure to choose a brush that has soft bristles.

The second is round bristles. This might be a little confusing because bristles hardly have a round shape. What our dental team means is: Choose a brush that has round-ended bristles. This means the bristles have been smoothed out to keep from harming the gums.

The third is the American Dental Association Seal of Approval. This is a logo you will find on the packaging. It should be a little box with “ADA” inside. This logo means the toothbrush has been tested for safety and effectiveness, which means it’s the best brush for your smile.
