To clean the teeth thoroughly, brushing should be gentle. This is why it is better to choose a brush that has a small round head containing synthetic hair. This not only makes it possible to make the right circular movements but also to reach areas where access is more difficult. Do not look for a great brush to have an abrasive effect.
