SELECTING A TOOTH BRUSH

This time of year a tooth brush may be given as a stocking stuffer or as a gift. I think that is a great idea for a gift that promotes health and well being. According to the Academy of General Dentists the probability of brushing during the work day increases 65% if a tooth brush is simply kept at work ! I recommend a soft bristle tooth brush. The medium and hard bristle brushes may cause irreparable injury to the gums creating a condition called recession. Once the gums have receded from the tooth surface, the gums will not return. Electric tooth brushes are also an excellent gift. My staff and I have found that the electric tooth brushes with a charging base are more efficient than the battery powered tooth brushes. I hope this may help your holiday shopping !! #fb
