Times Where a New Toothbrush is Warranted

Most people know that every three months or so, they should flip out their old toothbrush for a new one. However, that is not the only times where you should be trying to flip out your old toothbrush.

Sometimes you should even flip out a new toothbrush for another new one. Do you know when your toothbrush needs to be replaced? Here are a few times where you should be making sure you put a new toothbrush into your oral hygiene routine.

Make Sure You Use a New Toothbrush When These Things Happen


If someone drops your toothbrush into anything that would not be good to put in your mouth, get a new toothbrush. Simply dropping it on the floor is not a big deal most of the time since it can be sanitized, but if you drop it into a bucket or sink of chemicals, or into the toilet, it is time to bring in a new toothbrush.

People who are fighting off serious illnesses that are contagious should flip out their toothbrushes as soon as they have been on the medication long enough to not be contagious anymore. Illnesses like strep are usually no longer contagious after 24 hours on the antibiotic, so find out from your doctor when you are safe, then flip out your toothbrush.

The same goes if you get a lot of cold sores. Once your outbreak is fading, make sure to use a new toothbrush. If you keep using the same one, you could wind up with more cold sores just from brushing your teeth.

To find out other times where you need to flip out your toothbrush, ask your dentist. They may have suggestions that pertain to your oral health, which may be able to help you stay healthier just by a quick flip of your toothbrush.
