Health Tip: Keep Germs Away From Your Toothbrush

By on March 2, 2016

Your toothbrush is key to keeping your mouth clean, so make sure it’s not full of germs.

The American Dental Association suggests:

  • Never share your toothbrush with anyone else.
  • After brushing, rinse your toothbrush to wash away debris.
  • Place your toothbrush in a container, upright, that allows it to air dry without touching any other toothbrush.
  • Store your toothbrush in the open. Do not cover it or put it in a closed space.
  • Get a new toothbrush every three-to-four months. Replace a child’s toothbrush even more frequently.
