A toothbrush is used to clean the teeth with toothpaste. Toothbrushes are available in different versions, including conventional, electric and ultrasonic. Ordinary toothbrushes, in turn, are divided into 3 types: soft, medium-hard, hard.

Dentists say that to have healthy teeth, you need to clean them with the right toothbrush. But people know very little about the toothbrushes they need to use every day. We appealed to dentist Elshan Tagi regarding the issue. He said that we should choose toothbrushes in such a way that the bristles of the brush can enter the tooth pores:

"The choice of toothbrushes varies from person to person. If you have a problem with your palate, you should use soft brushes. If there are no problems in our oral cavity, it is better to use medium-hard brushes. We do not usually recommend hard toothbrushes. Because it damages the enamel layer of the tooth. ”

Tagi also compared conventional, electric and ultrasonic toothbrushes:

"Electric toothbrushes can reach all the pores of the tooth. More effective than normal brushes But the most effective toothbrushes are ultrasonic brushes. Because after we eat, food remains at the bottom of our teeth. When these food residues remain in our teeth from evening to morning, they begin to crystallize. These crystals then turn into tartar. Ultrasonic toothbrushes can completely clean these crystals. Ordinary and electric toothbrushes can't do that. "
