Daily Brushing of your teeth and gums and cleaning between your teeth is important because it removes plaque. If the plaque isn't removed, it continues to build up, feeding on the food debris left behind and causing tooth decay and gum disease.

Which type of toothbrush should you use

The dentist @Healthy Roots will be able to recommend a toothbrush suitable for you.
Normally adults should choose a brush which has a small to medium sized head with soft to medium multi-tufted, round-ended nylon bristles. The head should be small enough to reach into all parts of the mouth especially the back of the mouth. Children need to use smaller brushes but with the same type of filaments.
Number of speciality toothbrushes are also available. For instance, people with sensitive teeth can now use softer bristled brushes. There are also smaller headed toothbrushes for those people with crooked or irregular teeth.

How to brush your teeth, Method of removing plaque
Here is one method of removing plaque
Place the head of your toothbrush against your teeth, then tilt the bristle tips to a 45 degree angle against the gum line. Move the brush in small circular movements several times, on all the surfaces of every tooth.
Brush the outer surfaces of each tooth, upper and lower, keeping the bristles angled against the gum line.
Use the same method on the inside surfaces of all your teeth.
Brush the biting surface of your teeth.
To clean the inside surfaces of the front teeth, tilt the brush vertically and make several small circular strokes with the front part of the brush.
Brushing your tongue will help freshen your breath and will clean your mouth by removing bacteria.

Be sure to brush thoroughly with a fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day, more often if your dentist recommends it. If you regularly keep getting discomfort or bleeding after brushing your teeth, you should see your dentist.

Worn out toothbrushes cannot clean your teeth properly and may damage your gums. It is important to change your toothbrush every 2 to 3 months or sooner if the filament become worn. When bristles become splayed, they do not work properly.
