Your toothbrush is always at the forefront of oral health, which assists you in keeping not just your teeth clean but also your mouth and whole body healthy.
If you follow the recommendation of The Australian Dental Association of brushing two times per day, for 2 minutes each time, then you are succeeding in getting rid of old food and most of the bacteria that collects on the surface of your teeth every day.
So When Do I Need To Replace My Toothbrush?
When you notice a toothbrush with worn-out bristles, it’s time for them to be dumped in a trashcan. A worn-out toothbrush loses its stiffness and efficiency to remove bacteria in the mouth.
It is advised that you replace your toothbrush every 3 to 4 months or when you notice that it is getting worn out.
When Should You Replace An Electric Toothbrush Head?
Electric toothbrushes help you in cleaning the surface area of your teeth by rotating its head. Though electric toothbrushes are preferred more than a manual toothbrush due to their efficiency in better cleaning, they are also recommended to be replaced more often than a traditional toothbrush.
It is recommended to replace the head of your electric toothbrush after 12 weeks (3 months) or earlier if you notice the bristles are not in their best condition.
A toothbrush is an oral hygiene tool that keeps your mouth healthy and, in return, also keeps your overall health in check. Hence, taking care of your toothbrush is as crucial as you would do for any of your personal grooming tools.
Note that maintaining a good oral hygiene routine is all the more important to enhance your teeth’s functionality, durability, and visibility. And the right dental tools include the use of a good toothbrush, dental floss and fluoride toothpaste.
Also, ensure to visit your dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine dental cleaning.
