Toothbrush care includes always taking the necessary steps to brush your teeth and care for your toothbrush. Your toothbrush will not be able to clean your mouth if it is unclean to begin with. Thus, it is important to keep your toothbrush safe and clean so that contamination cannot occur. Here are some helpful tips regarding how you can take care of your toothbrush:
– Contamination is one of the biggest risk factors for your toothbrush. One way that contamination can occur is through improper storage or use. If you get sick, or if the toothbrush falls on the floor or any area that can potentially house germs, you may want to replace your toothbrush head. Furthermore, always store your brush in an aired-out area so moisture cannot collect.
– Never store your toothbrush with other toothbrushes, and never allow anyone else to use your toothbrush. Similarly, never use anyone else’s toothbrush.
– Make sure that your toothbrush fits your mouth as intended. This means you need to make sure that the brush head can reach all areas within your mouth. Also, look for toothbrushes that have soft bristles.
– For additional help choosing your toothbrush and toothpaste, visit our dentists for product recommendations and suggestions.
