This is how to take care of your toothbrush

Posted on 1/10/2022 by Beautiful Smiles Office
This is how to take care of your toothbrushRegular brushing of teeth is important to maintain optimal oral wellbeing. Brushing ensures that you remove any food particles that remain after eating, also to prevent acids and plaque from accumulating. These are the major factors that can make you develop tooth decay and cavities. Our dentists recommend that you brush your teeth twice a day to improve your dental health. Your toothbrush is an important part of your dental health, and some tips can help you ensure that it is in the right condition to play its role effectively.

Change it after every three months

Changing your toothbrush regularly is crucial for your oral health. Our experts recommend that you change your toothbrush with a new one after every three months. This is because the bristles of your old toothbrush may have become soft and worn out, and thus unable to remove particles from your tooth surface.
An old toothbrush also accumulates bacteria with time. The bacteria can cause tooth decay because they break down sugars and excrete acids in the process. Therefore, changing that old toothbrush will prevent you from taking the bacteria back into your mouth.

Wash your toothbrush with clean running water

Take your time to wash your toothbrush after brushing. Run plenty of water over it to remove bacteria and food particles trapped in the bristles. Make sure to wash your hands before cleaning your brush, to avoid trapping germs in the bristles.

Store your toothbrush in an upright position

After brushing, storing your toothbrush in an upright position ensures that it dries faster. In this position, the water drains quickly, and your toothbrush air dries in the process.

Visit our clinic for more advice and tips on how to achieve optimal oral health. At the facility, you can talk to one of our experts and get an examination to determine whether you have optimal oral health.
