Toothbrush Reviews

Toothbrush Reviews

Since ancient times, mankind had used tooth brushing tools made from twigs, natural bristles and bones, to help keep their teeth clean. Over the years, the designs of toothbrushes have evolved to accommodate the various needs and preferences. However, the basic features of a handle to grip and a bristle head for cleaning still remain in the toothbrush of modern days.

Toothbrushes of today are in two broad categories of manual and electric toothbrushes and they come in various shapes and sizes. The handle of a manual toothbrush can be straight, angled or curved and the toothbrush heads come in shapes of oblong, oval, round and rectangular. Some handles are ergonomically designed and fitted with soft rubber areas for better grip. Toothbrush bristles today are made of synthetic materials and with versions of soft and hard bristles.

If you are looking for a manual toothbrush, there are many different types sold by the leading companies in oral care. However, most of their products are made of plastic handles and nylon bristles. My reviews here are mostly for toothbrushes that are made from BPA free bristles, eco-friendly, organic and compostable materials.
