In brief: Probably soft.
The best is probably a soft toothbrush, because it does not damage and inflame the gums.
The best person for this answer would probably be the dentist.

For almost 30 years we have been recommending the Rotadent electric toothbrush. It is soft and has more than 10 times as many bristles. It gives 90,000 sweeps a second in removing the infective plaque. I would not be without one.

In brief: Soft
There are soft tooth brushes that are very good in the market place.
If you google toothbrushes, you can read the reviews. Just remember soft and to use one that is easy to handle. This is a very individual choice.
