Toothbrushes can be distinguished by the hair they have. There are two kinds of brushes: soft brush and hard brush. The hair of soft brush is very soft and thin, and it is denser. On the contrary, the hair of hard brush is hard, thin and sparse. Some people like to use soft-bristled toothbrush, because brushing teeth is very comfortable, and will not sting teeth, while some people like to use hard-bristled toothbrush, feel that the brush is cleaner, then the soft-bristled toothbrush is better or hard-bristled?
Whether a toothbrush is soft or hard depends on the individual’s teeth and gums, mainly the gums.
Some gums bleed easily. Don’t use hard hair. Because it is easy to bleed gums, although the toothbrush is looking at brushing teeth, but gum health is the key to oral health, so the choice of soft or hard hair is different from person to person.
Too hard brush can easily lead to gingival atrophy, wedge-shaped defects in the neck, gingival bleeding and other symptoms; too soft brush can not play a role in cleaning the face of teeth. So choose toothbrush with moderate hardness. Smoking or easy to deposit dental stones, choose a medium hardness toothbrush; elderly or periodontal patients, choose soft hair toothbrush to protect periodontal tissue; children’s toothbrush is more soft than adults, generally only suitable for children. The end of the brush bundle should be rounded and smooth, so that plaque can be effectively eliminated and gingival tissue can be avoided. When choosing, it is impossible to perceive the bristle hardness by touching the plastic package of the toothbrush by hand. We can see the bristle hardness information by observing the bristle: the soft bristle toothbrush has irregular top and the hard bristle toothbrush has regular arrangement.
