However, many people overlook the maintenance of the most important tool in keeping that smile healthy.
According to the ADA, our toothbrushes are quickly infested with bacteria and germs that accumulate over time. This bacteria typically comes from our mouth, or the handling and care of the toothbrush in our bathroom or during travel.
Now don’t be alarmed or freak out on us. This is completely normal, and will not damage your oral hygiene the minute your bristles get some visitors. However, that does mean that you should start investing in a new toothbrush every 3-4 months. At this time, the average American swaps out their toothbrush roughly once to twice a year. Now while this may serve many, we highly recommend you increase that turnover.
Typically a good indication of when you should swap out your toothbrush is when the bristles become frayed and bent.
Now, if your one of those who happens to bring your home toothbrush, as your travel toothbrush, its time you considered a Brushee.
