Your toothbrush is vital in maintaining good oral health. You should look to replace your toothbrush around every 90 days, regardless of whether it has started to fray.
- Rinse your toothbrush out under the tap after cleaning your teeth to remove unwanted particles.
- Store your toothbrush upright in a space where it is aired, avoiding moisture retention and bacteria build up.
- Do not share your toothbrush, avoiding transfer of bacteria which may cause dental issues requiring a visit to the dentist.
"Your toothbrush should ideally be replaced every three or four months. Do not wait until your toothbrush’s bristles are frayed or damaged to replace your brush. Whether or not your toothbrush looks like it needs to be replaced, it’s a good idea to start using a new one after approximately 90 days."
