                                 SOFT/MEDIUM OR HARD TOOTHBRUSH
There’s a common misconception that hard bristled toothbrushes clean better.
The truth is, they can actually damage your teeth and gums.
Hard bristles are great at removing plaque and stain, but they also wear down something you don’t want to lose -- your tooth  enamel.
Hard bristles can also damage your gums  and eventually cause them to recede.    

When gums recede and the root surface of the  tooth is exposed----------sensitivity-----   ---- damage to supporting bone-----&----within  a span of time loose teeth.                                                                                                                            
SOFT TOOTHBRUSH IS AS EFFECTIVE AS A HARD TOOTHBRUSH:
 A soft/medium tooth brush is best because the bristles will bend and flex around the teeth and gums to better remove the plaque better 
By brushing thoroughly but gently with a soft/medium bristled brush, you can get rid of bad bacteria but keep your teeth’s natural layer of protection  called the enamel intact.

If it you’re worried you won’t get your teeth as clean with a soft/medium toothbrush, it may be time to focus on your brushing technique. To clean teeth and gums most effectively, angle your toothbrush bristles toward the gum line, and use gentle, circular, massaging strokes to remove plaque. Gentle pressure is all that’s needed to remove plaque,

Plus, it’s hard to get in all the nooks and crannies of your mouth with bent, fraying bristles.  :

Don't share toothbrushes.
Rinse your toothbrush thoroughly with tap water after use, making sure to remove any toothpaste and debris.
Store your toothbrush in an upright position, and let it air dry:Never store a toothbrush in a toothbrush holder at home-the chronically moist environment can promote bacteria growth. If you must use a covered toothbrush holder frequently, look for one with small holes to let air in.Keep your toothbrush in an upright position, and let it air dry.

Keep it covered on the road, but not at home: 
When you travel, put your toothbrush in a travel toothbrush holder-don’t let it roll around uncovered in your suitcase or toiletry bag where it can pick up dust, dirt, and bacteria

Consider a sanitizer :If you want to try a sanitizer, look for one that has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for "reducing bacterial contamination that occurs naturally on toothbrushes.''
