teeth, health, smile, dentistToothbrushes can help keep your smile healthy as long as some basic care and use rules are followed.

Key takeaways:

– To prevent bacterial build up, replace your toothbrush every 4 months or sooner if you have been treated for conditions affecting teeth or gums

– Never share toothbrushes, not even with family members

– Try not to keep your toothbrush exposed to humidity as that breeds bacteria; store in an open-air space instead

Also, a 15-minute soak in mouthwash will help to deep-clean the brush and bristles.

If you have questions, your dentist is a great source of information on all topics related to dental care and oral health.
