Our Bass toothbrush has fewer bristles than most other toothbrushes. This helps the bristles to wiggle down along the gum line and clear away the bugs that cause gum disease. This is important because when there are too many bristles on a toothbrush, they are ineffective and just mash against our teeth rather than helping to disrupt and clear away the bad bugs.
Also, the bristles of our Bass toothbrushes have rounded tips to ensure that they are gentle on the gums. Many other toothbrushes have rough-cut bristles, and this can etch the enamel of the teeth and irritate the gums, which contributes to receding gums.
Finally, our Bass toothbrushes have a shorter handle. The handles are made shorter on purpose to provoke the user to grasp the brush with a lighter hand, like if you were holding a violin bow. This reduces the amount of pressure that our tender gums receive during brushing (brushing hard with firm pressure harms the gums more than it helps).
Our Bass toothbrushes work in harmony with the Bass Brushing Technique that’s described in our article and video How to Brush Your Teeth to Reduce Gum Disease.
