What type of toothbrush do you use? I use a hybrid one, and I don’t mean because it is built to be a hybrid. It is an electronic toothbrush that when it runs out of battery power, is start to use it manually. Now, the battery lasts for months, so the question is: Do you just get a new toothbrush or put a new battery in one? Batteries aren’t cheap these days, and those electronic toothbrushes can actually be rather cheap anyway. The point is you need to replace your toothbrush often enough.
Should you actually use an electronic toothbrush? Some say yes and some say no. People’s teeth get more sensitive and brittle with age so it may not be good to use a toothbrush that in some ways controls itself. It of course also matters what toothpaste you use. Personally, I like the toothpastes that focus more on the mechanics and not the mint. Baking soda toothpastes are good in my opinion. Then you use a good mouthwash, and that is where the mint comes in. Just get a good toothbrush that provides the best coverage and go from there. I’m starting to think so want to get a different kind of toothbrush anyway, so I would recommend avoiding the electronic ones.
