Toothbrushes have significantly evolved from a simple toothbrush with uniform bristles to a rechargeable one that pairs with your phone. Brushing habits are essential to promote healthy teeth and gums and prevent tooth decay.

Healthy gums and bones are the foundation for stable teeth. Periodontal disease occurs when bacteria localize deep below the gum line leading to gum inflammation and bone loss. This process is irreversible, so it’s essential to prevent this from occurring or arresting the disease process before tooth loss occurs.

Top 6 Best Everyday Manual Toothbrush | 6 Toothbrushes being reviewedEffects of Periodontal Disease

  • Gum recession
  • Irreversible bone loss
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Bad breath
  • Inflamed gums
  • Teeth mobility
  • Tooth loss
  • Increased bacteria
  • Correlation with systemic health issues

Gum disease becomes more prevalent as we age. As a result, oral health care companies have designed specialized everyday toothbrushes to eliminate gum disease-causing bacteria while minimizing gum recession and tooth irritation. When bone loss occurs, the gum tissue follows, exposing a hypersensitive area of enamel or cementum along the root surface. These standard toothbrushes are beneficial to patients in their fight against periodontal disease and prevent tooth decay.

From a dentist’s perspective, let’s look at the Top 6 Best Everyday Toothbrush.

Colgate 360 Whole Mouth Clean Toothbrush

Colgate 360 Whole Mouth Clean Toothbrush Review

Colgate also offers many educational resources to the public and dental professionals. They have an extensive line of manual, battery, and electric toothbrushes. The Colgate 360 Whole Mouth Clean Toothbrush seeks to prevent tooth decay and remove oral bacteria.

Colgate 360 Whole Mouth Clean Toothbrush Front ViewColgate 360 Whole Mouth Clean Toothbrush Front BristlesColgate 360 Whole Mouth Clean Toothbrush Side Bristles
Pros

Colgate designed a comfortable, lightweight toothbrush with many strategically placed bristles. There was no slipping, and the tongue cleaner was effective. Also, the brush head is wide to wrap around all surfaces of the teeth effectively. The bristles are slightly feathered to slide below the gum tissue, and the tip of the brush head has extended bristles to clean behind the back teeth.


Cons

The bristles are comfortable; however, we would have appreciated more of them within the brush head. Also, the brush head size may be too large for individuals with small mouths.




Colgate 360 Advanced Toothbrush

Colgate 360 Advanced Toothbrush Review

The Colgate 360 Advanced Toothbrush is similar to Colgate 360 Whole Mouth Clean; however, there are a few distinctions. This toothbrush has a more advanced cheek and tongue cleaner. There are also a more significant number of bristles versus the Colgate 360 Advanced Toothbrush.

Let’s take a closer look at this colorful toothbrush.


Highlights
  • $2.99 per toothbrush

Pros

The intricate bristle placement is something you can’t miss. The bristle tufts are uniformly placed to remove bacteria on all four sides of the tooth. Also, the cheek and tongue cleaner is the best we’ve seen. In addition, the toothbrush is lightweight and comfortable to grip when brushing. Lastly, the brush head is broad in the middle portion to provide full coverage cleanability.


Cons

Although the bristles are labeled soft, they are stiff and less pliable than other competitors. Also, the brush head is on the larger side and may be less suitable for individuals with smaller mouths.




GUM Deep Clean Toothbrush

GUM Deep Clean Toothbrush Review

GUM understands that “healthy gums lead to a healthy life.” GUM is most well-known for their floss picks; however, they have a solid line of toothbrushes. GUM Deep Clean features a quad grip handle to fit more comfortably in your hand while brushing.

Pros

The GUM toothbrush features a highly innovative and comfortable four-surface handle. The brush head has great size with an adequate amount of bristles. The bristles are incredibly soft and are feathered at the tip to slide below the gum line. Also, the bristles are much taller than other toothbrushes allowing them to stretch further around each tooth.


Cons

This toothbrush has many great qualities; however, a cheek and tongue cleaner would have topped it off.





Oral-B Clic Manual Toothbrush

Oral-B Clic Manual Toothbrush Review

Oral-B was founded in 1949 by a periodontist and his wife to create a safer and more effective toothbrush. The brand “trusted by dentists and consumers worldwide” offers many products to meet your unique oral care needs. Oral-B is most well known for its electric toothbrush line; however, they have several manual and battery-powered toothbrushes. They strategically place bristles on various aspects of the brush head to clean different areas of the tooth. Oral-B Clic is their first manual toothbrush with replacement brush heads. The replaceable brush heads “use up to 60% less plastic over two years,” and it’s more expensive than the other toothbrushes.

Let’s take a closer look at the Oral-B Clic.


Highlights
  • $19.99 per toothbrush
  • Unique CLICfit mechanism

  • Magnetic toothbrush holder

Pros

This is anything but your everyday toothbrush. The premium metal materials are solid, durable, and sleek. It feels more like a high-end fountain pen than a toothbrush. The replaceable brush heads are innovative for a manual toothbrush and will reduce waste. Also, the bristles are soft and uniformly placed in a crisscross pattern, effective at removing plaque, and highly desirable. Oddly enough, the metal was comfortable if it bumped opposing teeth or adjacent gum tissue. Lastly, the brush head was a perfect size and adequate for all individuals.


Cons

We would have desired a tongue cleaner and feathered bristles. Also, the grip was insufficient to prevent the toothbrush from slipping or rotating during use. The Clic was also approximately four to six times more expensive than the other toothbrushes reviewed.





Oral-B Pro-Flex Expert Clean Toothbrush

Oral-B Pro Flex Expert Clean Toothbrush Review

The Oral-B Pro-Flex Expert Clean is uniquely designed to flex with your teeth, and the brush head is split to allow each side to pivot separately. This design feature allows the bristles to clean at a greater angle than standard toothbrushes.

Let’s take a closer look at this innovative toothbrush.


Highlights
  • $3.50 per toothbrush
  • Soft bristles
  • Gentle on gums
  • “Improved oral health in 2 weeks”
  • Individual flexing sides

Pros

This innovative toothbrush effectively cleans away plaque with its two-flex design. The handle is comfortable to hold and lightweight. The tip of the brush head is taller than the other bristles to clean away plaque in the back of the mouth.


Cons

Although the toothbrush was effective, we would have desired feathered bristles to slide below the gum line. Also, the bristles seemed more medium than soft, in our opinion.





Oral-B Bacteria Blast Toothbrush

Oral-B Bacteria Blast Toothbrush Review

Oral-B Bacteria Blast fights plaque bacteria and features color-changing indicators. The bristles change from green to yellow when it’s time to replace them. If your toothbrush is not equipped with this technology, it’s recommended to replace your toothbrush every three months for an effective clean.

Let’s take a closer look at this indicator toothbrush.

Pros

Oral-B developed a great overall toothbrush. It was comfortable to use and effective at cleaning the teeth. The bristles were soft and uniformly placed for a superior clean. In addition, the color-changing indicator bristles are an excellent reminder to replace the toothbrush every three months.


Cons

We would have desired a tongue and cheek cleaner. Also, the bristle density was inadequate, leading to over-flexing of the bristles.





Overall Champion: GUM Deep Clean Toothbrush*

GUM Deep Clean Toothbrush Review

GUM Deep Clean Toothbrush blew us, or rather, brushed us all away. This toothbrush stole the show with its highly desirable handle grip, super soft feather bristles, and lengthened bristles. It’s easy to sense the high quality clean while using. We can’t get enough of the re-designed toothbrush handle as well. Oral-B Clic was desirable and reminded us of a high dollar fountain pen with its weightedness. Also, the replaceable brush heads are great at cutting down excess waste. Colgate 360 Advanced placed third to round out the top 3. Each of the top 6 toothbrushes tested offered unique design features that were enjoyable to try.
