I contacted Sensodyne about where we can purchase X-tra X-tra soft toothbrush for Senior Citizen whose teeth hurt even using WaterPik.

This Senior Citizen is scared to go to Dentist and remove his facemask because he lives in high-COVID area (and there has been resurgence).

Please please give few names of X-tra X-tra soft toothbrush this Senior Citizen can use to clean his teeth.

Couldn't you buy a toothbrush intended for use by a young child? Colgate has a line of extra soft toothbrushes, such as the Extra Soft 207 toothbrush for young children. The handle will be shorter, of course.

I got an extra soft sensitive OralB toothbrush from the dentist last time I was there. Maybe your dentist has them too?

It doesn't say extra soft extra soft, just ES.

Nimbus toothbrushes are very soft.

WaterPiks are adjustable, you can use them with such a low pressure that you can barely feel the water make contact. The goal is to use it at a level that is comfortable then start turning the pressure up a little at a time. Since it hurts you I would suggest that you probably need to see a dentist ASAP. You will not get covid from seeing your dentist.

These children toothbrushes are too hard for him.

If he uses any toothbrush other than Sensodyne x-tra x-tra soft on his lower left teeth, it bleeds :-(

I'm not a dentist but I've always heard that if the gums bleed while brushing then you have gum disease and if not addressed you will lose the teeth. I would convince him to go to the dentist if he doesn't want to risk tooth loss. Good luck!

This toothbrush. Here’s the manufacturer’s site - https://phbtoothbrushes.com/products...oft-toothbrush - but it’s available on Amazon. I’ve had a to of dental work and following each surgical procedure or implant placement, my dental specialist gives me a couple of these brushes to use on the affected area. I don’t think a softer brush exists.
