Do Dentists Recommend Bamboo Toothbrushes?

If you're thinking of making a sustainable change to bamboo toothbrushes, you might've already asked "do dentists recommend bamboo toothbrushes?"

Below we'll go through the reasons bamboo toothbrushes are not only good for the Earth but great for your teeth too.

Do Dentists Recommend Bamboo Toothbrushes?

Dentists do recommend bamboo toothbrushes. The only major difference between your plastic toothbrush and a bamboo toothbrush is the handle. Bamboo brushes will clean your teeth just as well as plastic ones.

Brushing 101

In general, you'll find the same bristles on bamboo brushes as plastic (although we do offer charcoal infused bristles). This means the brushing standard will be the same.

The British Dental Association emphasise the importance of brushing the surface of all your teeth. If you do this twice a day for 2 minutes, your teeth will be healthy - regardless of whether you use a bamboo, plastic or electric toothbrush.
