You’ll find a large selection of toothbrushes available, both manual and electric. It's a good idea to choose one that:

has a small head so it's easier to move around inside your mouth

has soft bristles

fits comfortably in your hand

Most important is brushing your teeth properly at least twice a day.

Adapting Toothbrushes for Special Needs If you have difficulty controlling hand, arm or shoulder movements, here are some ideas on adapting standard toothbrushes:

Enlarge the handle with a tennis ball, sponge foam or bicycle grip

Lengthen with a stick or rod

Attach to the hand or arm with elastic or Velcro straps or hand brace

Bend the toothbrush handle

For people who cannot manage fine movements, try using an electric toothbrush

Caring For Your Toothbrush

Do not share your toothbrush or use someone else’s toothbrush

After brushing, rinse your toothbrush thoroughly with tap water and allow to air-dry

Store standing upright. If it is near other toothbrushes, do not let the heads touch

Do not store in closed containers

Replace your toothbrush every three to four months or when the bristles look worn and bent
