Always exercise caution when it comes to storing your toothbrush. In addition, use toothbrushes that are safe and effective for your oral health and can easily accomplish the tasks set forth in front of them. If your toothbrush is not functioning properly, it will not be able to clean your mouth properly.

Always select a toothbrush that has been proven to be safe and effective. This is the case with product recommendations and suggestions from your dentist or products that have been awarded the ADA Seal of Acceptance. Once you have selected your toothbrush, make sure it can function effectively. If it is ever worn down, it will need to be replaced. Typically, toothbrushes need to be replaced every three to four months. Never share your toothbrushes with other and never use anyone else’s toothbrush. In addition, make sure you store your toothbrush away from other forms of potential contamination and do not store in a closed container. For additional cleaning tips for your toothbrush, visit your dentist.
