How often do I need a new toothbrush?

Posted on 2/21/2022 by Platte Valley Dental Care
How often do I need a new toothbrush?You need to ensure that you prevent dental health issues with proper dental hygiene practices at home. Proper dental health is important if you want to enjoy a bright smile and a stress-free life. Dental problems can cause you pain and discomfort, as well affecting your appearance. One of the ways you can maximize your dental health is by replacing your toothbrush regularly.

Every Three Months

You should get a new toothbrush after every three months. This is the recommended practice approved by the American Dental Association. Our dentists also agree with this frequency as it is vital in preventing oral problems from developing. If you can change the toothbrush earlier than three months it will still be effective.

Why It Is Important To Change Your Toothbrush Regularly

The bristles of your toothbrush can trap germs and bacteria. When you keep using the old toothbrush, you will be taking the germs and bacteria back into your mouth each time you use it. Therefore, to avoid this, you should ensure that you get a new toothbrush.

An old toothbrush will also have weak and soft bristles which will be ineffective in cleaning your teeth. You need to have a toothbrush that will remove food particles and plaque from the surface of your teeth. Getting a new toothbrush will be an excellent place to start in ensuring you avoid the buildup of plaque and food particles.
