Our topic of discussion today is the importance of eco-friendly toothbrushes. If you’re a conscientious person who cares about the environment, then you’ll be happy to know that Catonsville Dental Care offers them. Tess Oral Health is the manufacturer, and we offer both adult and child-sized toothbrushes. You can become the significant change you’d like to see in the world by making small, conscious choices each day. Here are the benefits of using eco-friendly toothbrushes made of bamboo.
Bamboo Eco-Friendly Toothbrushes Save Our Ocean
A bamboo toothbrush is chemical-free and minimizes the environmental pollution and plastic waste in our oceans. Sea animals will be less susceptible to eating plastic. In addition, it also has antibacterial properties while being a biodegradable material. You can cultivate bamboo repeatedly without it harming the earth. The stems grow relatively quickly and do not require any fertilizers or pesticides.
A Bamboo Toothbrush is Still Effective at Cleaning Your Teeth
If you examine a bamboo toothbrush, you can see that its bristles are shaped like waves. The shape of these bristles is excellent for removing hard-to-reach plaque. In addition, bamboo toothbrushes’ nylon bristles are ideal for removing surface stains. Furthermore, nylon is known for its low coefficient of friction. In other words, you won’t have to worry about damaging your enamel or gums.
A Deeper Look Into Why all of This Matters
Did you know that around 1 billion toothbrushes become discarded each year? That makes sense because you do have to replace your toothbrush every season. However, plastic can take eons to decompose. You might be surprised to realize that plastic toothbrushes from the 20th century still exist! For that reason, it makes sense to discard, better yet, recycle a regenerative material.
So, What About Electric Toothbrushes?
We’ve mentioned before that electric toothbrushes provide a more thorough cleaning than manual toothbrushes, which is still valid. With that in mind, you’re probably debating whether you should care about the environment or opt for a better tooth cleaning experience. You can do both because environmentally-friendly electric toothbrushes exist! Specifically, electric bamboo toothbrushes exist. Of course, they include some plastic in their composition. However, it’s not as much plastic as a traditional electric toothbrush. Amazon has plenty of selections!
