A: The brand of the toothbrush is not as critical as
the type of bristle and the size of the head. A soft toothbrush with a
small head is recommended because medium and hard brushes tend to cause
irritation and contribute to recession of the gums. It's unnecessary to
"scrub" the teeth as long as you are brushing at least twice a day and
visiting your dentist at least twice a year for cleanings.
