Much like your teeth, taking care of your toothbrush is essential to ensure proper dental hygiene. What suggestions would your dentist make and why are they important? Let’s look at three key points.
– Always rinse your brush after every session (bacteria can build up).
– Replace the brush if the bristles have become frayed (these can damage the gums).
– Purchase a new toothbrush that is equipped with soft and gentle bristles, as they will help to adequately remove plaque.
