My Mom was recently given a sample Rx Ultra Suave super soft toothbrush by a dental surgeon immediately after she had dental surgery. She absolutely loved it. According to the manufacturer, it is the softest toothbrush available and is extremely easy on sensitive gums after surgery. Another excellent alternative that I have not received personal testimony on but appears to be a nice brush by a reputable oral product company is GUM’s 317 Post-Surgical Toothbrush Super Soft, which is gentle on healing and tender gum tissue. You can’t go wrong with either of these purchases. Remember not to apply too much pressure when using them.
