Buying a toothbrush can often be a challenging task. With the wide variety of options out there, selecting the right toothbrush can be a bit confusing. So here’s a guide for you that helps you decide not just which STIM toothbrush is best suited for you, but also covers the basics of brushing your teeth.
Let’s get the basics right. The best way to brush your teeth is by holding your brush at a 45-degree angle. This positions your toothbrush right where your tooth and gums meet. Brushing at this angle ensures that the area underneath your gums also gets cleaned properly. Always ensure to brush gently as brushing hard can damage your gums and make them sensitive.
We highly recommend the STIM Silky toothbrush for people with sensitive gums.
The different types of toothbrushes available on the market are:
1. Manual Toothbrush
Manual toothbrushes are usually the go-to option for most people. They are easy to use and cheaper. Apart from being pocket-friendly manual brushes are also environmentally sustainable.
STIM toothbrushes are a vegan-friendly option and aim to promote a pollution and cruelty-free future.
2. Interdental brush
The inter-dental toothbrush is a small brush that is either disposable or reusable. With the help of its angled plastic handle, these brushes are used for cleaning the area between the teeth and even the hard-to-reach areas around the dental braces and the teeth.
STIM interdental toothbrushes when used in conjunction with the normal toothbrush reduce the amount of plaque build-up and stave off gingivitis.
3. Single-tuft brush
The Single-tuft brush is the brush with a head comprising of 7 tightly packs tufts, which are meant to reach into certain deeper areas of the mouth. The ergonomic brush handle allows a firm grip which provides the precision required to clean small crevices.
The STIM Ortho MB toothbrush is a single-tufted toothbrush. It helps in cleaning difficult areas such as the back of the wisdom tooth and the tooth surface next to the missing tooth.
We at STIM Dental brushes are a vegan brand. We make sure that no animals are harmed during any stage of production.
While buying or even using a STIM toothbrush ensure to keep these things in your mind.
1. The brush and floss order is a lie
It doesn’t matter if you floss after brushing your teeth or before, as long as you manage to do both, the order in which you clean your teeth is redundant.
2. Leave your toothbrushes out in the open
After brushing, ensure that you rinse your STIM toothbrush well enough so that there is no residue remaining on the brush. Once done rinsing the brush, keep the brush out in the open to dry in an upright position.
Make sure you leave your brush to dry out in the open and not in a closed container. If kept in a closed container, the toothbrush wouldn’t dry properly, and this will lead to the growth of unwanted bacteria from the moisture.
3. The lifespan of a toothbrush
Always remember to replace your toothbrush every 2 months. In case the bristles of your toothbrush wear out before 2 months, make sure to replace your toothbrush.
4. Try opting for a soft-bristled brush
Brushing with a hard bristled brush can often end up damaging the enamel, and can also lead to sensitive gums. It is always recommended that people should use a soft-bristled brush to avoid causing unnecessary damage to their teeth.
The STIM silky toothbrush gives your teeth the thorough gentle cleaning they deserve.
5. 2 times a day for 2 minutes each
To maintain great dental health, a person should brush their teeth at least 2 times a day, for 2 minutes each.
Brush your teeth for two minutes each and let your fluoride toothpaste do its job. The STIM Ri-enamel toothpaste is enriched with fluoride and helps in enamel remineralization.
6. Size of toothbrush
Since the size of people’s mouths varies, the same size toothbrush doesn’t suit every mouth. STIM toothbrushes cater to the cleaning needs of different mouth sizes with regular and kids-sized brushes.
It is often recommended that people should opt for brushes with a small head. Because of their size, small head brushes can often reach places where a normal-sized brush wouldn’t be able to.
STIM toothbrushes have a small head. This makes it easy for the brush to reach the back of the mouth and clean it properly.
