Have you reached the pinnacle of skills for brushing your teeth yet? Are you ready to name yourself a master of the art of oral health care? Do the slightest signs of plaque buildup face the full force of flawless flossing and brushing treatments from you? If so, be aware there is not end to your journey. Continue your quest for optimum oral health care, because the path is ever winding, and the journey can always continue upward. To aid you in your quest, consider caring for your toothbrush as well.

Make sure to store your toothbrush in an upright position away from other toothbrushes. Bacteria can spread onto your toothbrush from countertops and even other toothbrushes. Even though it might seem like a good idea to store a toothbrush in a container, doing so could make it less safe.

Try to look for a toothbrush that fits into your mouth safely and easily, and make sure that it can reach all areas of your mouth. Also, only use toothbrushes that have soft bristles that aren’t overly abrasive. Abrasive toothbrushes can cause damage to your tooth enamel and gums. Look for a toothbrush with the ADA Seal of Acceptance or one that has been given to you by your dentist. A good toothbrush will only last a few months, about 3 or 4 to be exact, so replace them as required.
