Are Bamboo Toothbrushes Good for Teeth?
Bamboo toothbrushes are a good place to start for people looking to create a greener bathroom that reduces plastic waste. But whether bamboo toothbrushes are as good or better than plastic toothbrushes when it comes to dental care has been debated. At this point, we turn to specialists: dentists and hygienists. 

Are bamboo toothbrushes good for dental care?

The difference between a bamboo toothbrush and a plastic toothbrush in dental care is not its material. It all comes down to the bristles.

To maintain good oral hygiene and avoid the buildup of plaque and tartar, most adults are advised to use a small, medium, or soft-bristled toothbrush. Using a hard-bristled toothbrush can do more damage to your teeth, especially if you use or over-brush because it can cause enamel wear and bleeding gums. 

Do dentists recommend bamboo toothbrushes?

If your dentist is generally satisfied with the way you brush and the condition of your teeth and gums when using a manual toothbrush, getting started with a bamboo toothbrush is easy.

However, if your dentist recommends that you use an electric toothbrush to keep your teeth and gums healthy, we always recommend that you follow your dentist's advice.

Proper brushing technique

However, if you've discussed it with your dentist or hygienist, this can be resolved by changing your manual brushing technique. 

With a better understanding of how to brush your teeth, you can continue to use a manual toothbrush, such as a bamboo toothbrush, to maintain oral hygiene while reducing your environmental impact.

Here are some ways to use a manual toothbrush and keep your teeth clean:

Brush at a 45-degree angle to the gum line and in short strokes half the width of the teeth to the back of the teeth

For your molars and premolars, your chewing teeth, make sure you lay the brush flat and brush back and forth

For the inside of the front teeth, tilt the toothbrush vertically and use the tip of the brush to gently slide it up and down

Make sure to brush gently along the gum line

Don't forget to brush your tongue. Your tongue accumulates food particles that need to be removed to prevent odor-causing bacteria - so your breath is fresh!

So, should you switch from disposable plastic toothbrushes to bamboo ones?

The answer is simple - yes. 

Not only does it have many benefits for the environment, but you can also maintain oral hygiene and keep your gums safe from gum disease. 

Note: If your dentist recommends that you should use a specific type of toothbrush to maintain your dental care, follow their directions. When it comes to your teeth and gums, don't be afraid to ask your dentist or hygienist questions!
