The first thing you want to do is choose the most suitable toothbrush and the most suitable product that will work on your teeth. Most dentists give a product recommendation. The best teethbrush you will use is one that is at least twice as good as the product in the recommended brand. That means you need two brands to be perfectly satisfactory. You can use the recommended brand toothbrush and a toothpaste of some kind (for example, a toothpaste with fluoride added. But you should not use the same toothpaste with every toothbrush. For example, if you use the same brand toothbrush for every toothpaste, the results may not be optimal. If you don't know exactly which brand of toothpaste has fluoride added, read the label. There is a chance that your toothpaste contains it, and the other brand contains a different fluoride level. To learn more about fluoride, check out this page. And please don't ask me to recommend a specific toothpaste without more information. It will make your teeth harder to clean, and your dentist will want to replace your toothpaste with a different one. I don't recommend any specific toothpaste with any specific method of cleaning. I have seen too many times where a person has had to try so many different things to get that perfect flossing/clean flossing pattern. In many cases, flossing is not even done as much as it could be to be effective.
