Good quality

Always purchase a toothbrush that is of good quality. For example, if you are wanting to buy a manual toothbrush, the bristles should not fall out when brushing your teeth. The handle of the toothbrush should also be able to withstand normal use. Most dentists recommend that you change your toothbrush every three to four months. Electric toothbrushes should be safe to use.
