How to Choose and Maintain Your Toothbrush 

Wednesday, May. 8th 2024 4:20 PM

Choosing and Maintaining Your Toothbrush Tips. 

1) Pick a toothbrush with soft or extra-soft bristles when choosing a toothbrush. The harder the brush bristles, the greater the risk of harming your teeth and gums. Therefore, unless your dentist advises, soft-bristled toothbrushes are the better choice. 

2) Another good tip is to make sure you pick a toothbrush that has the seal of approval by the American Dental Association. 

3) Keep in mind the type of brush you use is not nearly as important as brushing the right way and twice a day. Any approved toothbrush will be a good tool, but you must know how to use it. 

4) Change your toothbrush regularly. Throw away your old toothbrush after three months or when the bristles flare, whichever comes first.

5) If you notice that your toothbrush bristles flare sooner than every three months, you may be brushing too hard. Therefore, try easing up.

6) When storing your toothbrush, make sure it’s in an upright position and do not touch other brushes. This helps to prevent bacteria and germs from spreading between brushes.

7) If you’ve been sick, replacing your toothbrush or brush head is important, as it may harbor bacteria and germs that can lead to re-infection.

8) Consider using an electric toothbrush, as it can be more effective in removing plaque and bacteria from your teeth and gums. Choose one with a small, round head and soft bristles.

9) Don’t share your toothbrush with anyone, as it can spread bacteria and germs between people.

10) Finally, remember to floss daily and see your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings. A good oral hygiene routine is essential for a healthy mouth and body.
