Why do electric toothbrushes have small heads?
Keep in mind that one of the benefits of the smaller head size on an electric toothbrush is that it is better able to clean each tooth individually and get to the hard-to-reach places of your mouth. Many different styles of brush heads are available, from polishing brush heads to brush heads for sensitive teeth.

How often should I change my toothbrush head?
If your brush head has lost effectiveness, it may leave plaque behind and can even hurt your gums. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends you replace your toothbrush head approximately every three to four months (around 90 days) to prevent bacteria from building up on the bristles.
Is small head toothbrush better?
However, when it comes to a toothbrush, a smaller head is actually better. A smaller head is able to navigate the tight spaces in your oral cavity. Molars may not get a thorough cleaning with a standard toothbrush head because of the restricted space in the back of the mouth.
Is a round brush head better?

The great thing about round brush heads is that – thanks to their shape – they completely envelop each tooth.

Should I use soft or medium toothbrush?
For the vast majority of people, a soft-bristled toothbrush will be the most comfortable and safest choice. Depending on how vigorously you brush your teeth and the strength of your teeth, medium- and hard-bristled brushes could actually damage the gums, root surface, and protective tooth enamel.
What type of toothbrush do dentists recommend?
Dentists recommend brushing teeth for a minimum of two minutes, twice a day, with a soft-bristled toothbrush. The right toothbrush is a matter of personal preference and financial considerations. A classic, manual brush costs a few dollars. An electric toothbrush can cost over $100.
Is sonic toothbrush better than electric?
While both the sonic and electric toothbrushes work well in comparison to the manual toothbrush, the sonic toothbrush is undeniably more efficient in cleaning your teeth. Electric toothbrushes typically have bristles that either scrub forward and backward or rotate in a mechanized motion.
