Daily Dental Tip: Reminder – Know when to ditch your brush

old toothbrush

How old is your toothbrush? The ADA suggests you get a new brush every 3 or 4 months. You can also look at the bristles. Once the bristles lose their normal flexibility and start to break apart, change your toothbrush. Frayed or broken bristles won’t clean your teeth as well. If you can’t decide which toothbrush to buy, ask your dentist which kind is best.
