Toothbrushes help to guarantee a healthy and pain-free set of teeth. However, they do suffer wear-and-tear through daily use. This is why your dentist recommends replacing a toothbrush every three or four months.
Why is this the case and what potential issues can you avoid?
– Bacteria will multiply in old toothbrushes.
– Frayed bristles will not properly clean your teeth.
– Older toothbrushes are less effective at removing plaque from the gum line.
“Do not wait until your toothbrush’s bristles are frayed or damaged to replace your brush.”
