At South Yarra Family Dental Care, we recommend using a soft bristled tooth brush. Soft brushes are the best at removing plaque from your teeth and gum line and are kinder on your gums. Hard bristle brushes apply to much pressure on the gums which can cause trauma resulting in sensitivity and gum recessions.

When picking a tooth brush, it’s important to pick a tooth brush that fits comfortably in your mouth allowing you to reach all your teeth easily.

Its recommended to replace your tooth brush or tooth brush head every 3 months.
Deciding between an electric or manual toothbrush is up to personal preference, both are equally effective at removing plaque when used correctly.
