When should you change your Toothbrush?
I once met someone who had been using a toothbrush for 2 whole years. I was shocked! The bristles were so badly worn, it was like brushing with the plastic handle of the Toothbrush. This brings us to a very important question that most people don't really think about or seriously consider.
WHEN SHOULD YOU CHANGE YOUR TOOTHBRUSH?
There are 3 occasions when we suggest and recommend you change your toothbrush;
• When bristles start flaring out (this is the most obvious but for toothbrushes that have hard bristles, the bristles may take a while before they fray) • Every 3 months (this is a good timeline to use as your standard) • After every episode of flu (this is one that many people don't know; harmful viruses may hide in your toothbrush and cause reinfection).
