In this blog post from Winston-Salem Dental Group, we’ll highlight some of the simple things you can do with your toothbrush to keep your mouth as clean and healthy as possible.
One of the most important habits anyone can form is to always allow their toothbrush to completely air dry between uses. The best way to let the toothbrush air dry is by placing it in a holder on the counter with the bristles pointing up. This is much better than sticking it away in a drawer since it will take longer to dry in there.
Also, when you travel away from the area make sure your toothbrush is dry before you put it in a travel container.
A good strategy is to buy two toothbrushes at the store. Then alternate between the two so each has time to fully dry out between uses.
And remember to replace your toothbrush (or brushes) every 3-4 months, or sooner if you’ve had a cold!
