Many people make very basic mistakes when storing their toothbrushes and these errors can lead to problems with teeth and gums. Three of the most important storage instructions are:
– Do NOT store the brush in its original container
– Do NOT store the brush in a confined space such as a cabinet
– Do NOT store a toothbrush in a container with others that might touch.
Ignoring any of these recommendations can allow bacteria to build up on the brush or risk contamination from other brushes stored in close proximity. It is also “never a good idea to share a toothbrush” if you want to avoid unnecessary trips to the dentist and further tips can be found at https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/top-tips-for-storing-your-toothbrush-and-keeping-it-clean/
