What would you choose to give up if you had to choose between your toothbrush and your car? A recent survey found that 42 percent of adults and 34 percent of teenagers would prefer give up their keys, computer, mobile phone, or microwave than get rid of their toothbrush. Teens were more likely to choose to give up their toothbrush than adults. It appears that many of you have the same enthusiasm for toothbrushes as Dr. Motiwala does. We at Dr. Motiwala Dental Clinic & Implant Centre would want to take advantage of this chance to celebrate the history of the toothbrush and talk about how to choose the best one for your needs.

Did you know that toothbrushes were created before other personal hygiene products such as soap, deodorant, and even toilets? The first documented use of a toothbrush dates back more than 5,000 years, however the early versions looked very different from modern toothbrushes. People in earlier times cleaned their teeth and took care of their gums with a variety of different things, including sticks, bones, and various types of animal hair and goods. It wasn’t too long ago that toothbrush bristles were made of animal hair, but commercial production of toothbrushes didn’t begin until a couple of centuries ago. Synthetic materials are used for the bristles now.

In today’s world, a toothbrush is available practically anywhere. Because there is such a wide variety of dental goods available, selecting the one that is most appropriate for your needs can be a challenging endeavor. The process of purchasing a toothbrush is not as straightforward as it once was due to the availability of electric, manual, soft or medium bristles, tongue-cleansing attachments, specialty grips, bristle configurations, gum stimulators, and the hundreds of brands currently on the market. How are you going to decide what to purchase? Make an appointment at Dr. Motiwala’s Dental Clinic and Implant Centre today! We would be delighted to be of assistance to patients in making decisions that are tailored to their specific need.

Did you know that the location in which you keep your toothbrush makes a significant impact on how well it retains its cleanliness and how long it lasts? Bathrooms have various uses, and the vast majority of those uses are not conducive to maintaining the sacredness of your toothbrush. Keep a distance of at least six feet between the toilet and your toothbrush at all times, and make sure the lid is closed before you flush the toilet. This will help you avoid harmful germs. In addition, make sure to use a holder that does not gather crusty, unused toothpaste or standing water, and maintain an appropriate space between your toothbrush and any other items in the bathroom. Last but not least, replace your toothbrush every three months (electronic toothbrushes may need to be replaced more frequently) or as soon as possible after recovering from an illness.

So how exactly do you make use of it? Brush your teeth for two to three minutes, at least twice a day, and be sure to reach all surfaces of the teeth, including the tongue, the backs, the edges, and the corners, and the surface of the teeth. It is estimated that a person uses a toothbrush for 38 days throughout the course of their lifetime, and the United States spends close to $800 million annually on the purchase of toothbrushes. Call Dr. Motiwala Dental Clinic & Implant Centre immediately if you have any questions or would like to arrange an appointment. Dr. Motiwala wants everyone to enjoy the good dental health that comes from true toothbrush love.
