Toothbrushes are not good forever. People may use them for some time, even when they shouldn't. There is a reason that you should replace your toothbrush and guidelines for when this should be done. Our professionals provide this information to those that are interested in having quality dental care and taking the best care of their teeth.
Guidelines for Toothbrush Replacement
The replacement of a toothbrush should be done no later than every three months. Switching the brush out within this time frame ensures that the mouth stays healthy and that bacteria doesn't get re-introduced into the mouth. We also recommend throwing out the brush after you have been sick, or if you have had any oral issues in the past. This will reduce the chances of re-infecting yourself.
It is important that you take the best care of your mouth and by replacing your toothbrush, you can provide the cleanliness needed. A toothbrush cannot be completely cleaned, which is why replacing it is what we recommend.
Throw out the old toothbrush, purchase a new one, and brush with this for no more than three months. Two months or less can also be a timeline to follow, but this is something that is up to the individual person.
