If you have good dental habits, your toothbrush will spend a lot of time in your mouth, which is why it’s so important to keep your toothbrush clean. Our team at [practice_name] offers you tips on keeping your tooth brush sanitary and bacteria-free.
– Clean it properly. To prevent your toothbrush from becoming a breeding ground for bacteria, rinse it off with running tap water before storing it in an upright position. You can prevent your toothbrush from touching others by investing in a toothbrush holder with individual slots (this is very important during cold and flu season).
– Avoid moist storage. A moist environment encourages the growth of bacteria and fungi. Keeping your toothbrush in a dry, airy environment and not storing it in a case while wet will reduce the risk of bacterial growth.
– Invest in a high-quality toothbrush. A high-quality toothbrush is guaranteed to last longer than its cheaper counterparts. When buying a toothbrush, look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance to ensure the product is both safe and effective.
– Throw it away when it’s time. Even the best toothbrushes don’t last forever. To make sure your teeth are receiving a good brushing, replace your toothbrush every three to four months, or when it shows signs of wear (eg, frayed, spread-out bristles).
