Common Mistakes When Storing Your Toothbrush

Properly storing your toothbrush can help to prevent dental problems like gum disease and tooth decay. Here are common mistakes people make when storing their toothbrushes.

Main points:

– Rinse after use. Always wash your toothbrush thoroughly after use to remove food residue and bacteria.

– Don’t store the toothbrush in the case. Lack of air circulation turns your toothbrush into a bacteria-suitable environment. Let it air-dry.

– Replace your toothbrush every 3 months or when the bristles get frayed.

Consult your dentist on the best toothbrush for your teeth to prevent plaque and infections.
