A Little Toothbrush History
Did you know the first toothbrush was invented in 1498? How far have we evolved since then? Little has changed until now.
Only a few years ago we had 3 choices in toothbrush categories, hard, medium and soft. It was actually difficult finding a soft toothbrush as the majority sold were hard and medium. Opinions have certainly changed as we have found out what a couple of decades of over brushing has done to our teeth and gums.
Do you have a perfect routine?
If you brush at two to three times a day any plaque build up is most likely the result of the difficulty reaching into the awkward areas of your mouth. The back of your rear molars are a good example. Unless you are a python this area is extremely difficult to brush effectively!
Plaque is sticky but isn't that difficult to remove. For most people the plaque build up occurs at the gum line. The complication that arises is if you brush your gum line too roughly you can damage your gums.
The best solution is to use a water flosser with a low abrasion Xylitol toothpaste delivery system. Water flossing is very effective at removing biofilm and plaque. By adding a low abrasion, calcium rich toothpaste to this routine we have the perfect solution.
