At last, a bamboo, eco-friendly version of the Bass toothbrush is available - the Orawellness BrushEco is made of 99.97% biodegradable and compostable materials; bamboo and Tynex® nylon.
The brushes have five different designs on the handle (hearts, smiley faces, bees, dolphins and turtle) and If you order multiples you'll receive an assortment - stock permitting.
Dr. Bass' original 3-row bristle design is still best for stimulating gum tissue, disrupting and disorganising the 'thug bug' colonies that are implicated in gum disease, and for helping us to be a good conductor of the symphony of microbes in the mouth, and now we have a 4-row bristle design that still has the same shorter Bass handle and rounded bristles tips, but that has bristle tufts that are a little closer together.
We love this new 4-row design for cleaning our teeth. (But nothing is better than the traditional 3-row design for doing the Bass Brushing Technique along the gum line.
Despite the names "Adult size" and "Junior size", there is no set age range for the Bass toothbrushes. Some of our adult customers prefer to use the junior toothbrush, as it better suits the size of their mouth. Conversely, some children have larger mouths that can accommodate the adult size toothbrushes. All three brushes have rounded bristle tips, a shorter handle, and medium-firmness bristles.
Do I need more than one toothbrush?
There are several benefits to having more than one type of toothbrush.
First, when we 'brush our teeth', we are looking to accomplish more than one job.
If you think about it, each tool in a toolkit does its specific job. Like a carpenter's toolkit, you can't fix everything with a hammer.
We find that the original 3-row Bass toothbrush that Dr. Bass created so many years ago still works best for wiggling bristles down into gum pockets. And now we also have a 4-row BrushEco that can help better clean and gently polish your teeth.
We think it's smart to have more than one toothbrush that you regularly use. This gives more time for each brush to fully dry out between uses, which reduces the risk of 'thug bugs' living on your toothbrush (gross, but possible :). Swapping toothbrushes often like this is a good idea.
So how do I use both types of brushes?
If you don't have a lot of time in the mornings, you can try this: brush twice daily, cleaning your gum line really well once a day with the 3-row BrushEco and your teeth really well once a day with the 4-row BrushEco.
That way, you can effectively care for your teeth and gums every day without having to commit extra time to your oral hygiene routine (and since you're alternating techniques, you can use a dry brush for each brushing).

It's weird but I love the feel of this little brush in my mouth. It feels totally different to a plastic toothbrushes and because of its size reaches all the areas that are continuously missed and where you can get build up. Designed to gently but throughly clean your teeth and when used with Shine it provides amazing results. Better for yiur teeth and the environment.
