There are many novel toothbrushes which are available in the market today. The most sustainable option among all is the Bamboo toothbrush. Till date there have not been many studies conducted, in our area which demonstrated the efficacy of bamboo tooth brushes in maintaining oral hygiene. Objectives: To assess the user satisfaction of bamboo toothbrushes among students of a dental college in North Gujarat. Materials and Methods: A triple blind randomized controlled study was conducted among the 40 dental students for a period of 3 months. They were divided into 2 groups, were given oral hygiene instructions and brushing technique demonstration at the beginning of the study. At the end of the 2 months, the participants were made to fill a Google form questionnaire to assess the user satisfaction of using the toothbrush given to them. Results: 40 students had participated in the present study (20 males and 20 females). They were randomly allotted to 2 groups such that each group had 10 males and 10 females. The mean age of the study participants was 21.45 ± 2.11 years. From the above results it can be seen that among the males majority from both the groups and among the females 60% from both the groups agreed that the toothbrushes allotted to them were sustainable. Conclusion: It was concluded that the bamboo toothbrushes were a sustainable option as compared to the plastic toothbrushes.
