PERSONAL ORAL CARE

 

TOOTHBRUSHES

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
