Way back when, before the toothbrush and toothpaste, people would use rough cloths, salt, twigs, or chalk to remove grime from their teeth. Thankfully toothbrush technology has advanced and we now have plenty of options when it comes to our dental care.
The bamboo toothbrush has exploded in popularity around the world because of its biodegradability. Just as effective as plastic or electric, a bamboo toothbrush has a bamboo handle and nylon fibers (or in some cases other natural fibers) that are just as strong as plastic. There are plenty of advantages that a bamboo toothbrush can offer.
Parkcrest Dental Group explores the advantages and disadvantages of a bamboo toothbrush, from its function to its biodegradability.
Bamboo toothbrushes reduce waste and are actually anti-microbial.
The most widely known and popular advantage, a bamboo-based toothbrush eliminates unnecessary waste while giving you the same quality of cleaning that a plastic brush can offer. With both the packaging and tossing of your toothbrush, recycling, reusing, or composting has never been easier. Here at Parkcrest Dental Group, we recommend changing your toothbrush every one to three months for optimum care. With a biodegradable toothbrush, you can feel better about reaching for that new brush.
Another advantage of bamboo is that it is naturally antimicrobial. There’s a reason cutting boards and kitchen utensils are made out of wood and bamboo. Unlike plastic, properties inside the bamboo kill bacteria that penetrate it’s surface, providing long-lasting protection against harmful bacteria.
