Time to Change Your Toothbrush?

Many dentists recommend that you change your toothbrush every three to four months. This is because its bristles have become frayed and worn. Frayed bristles will not clean your teeth and gums adequately. Over time, your toothbrush will become infested with bacteria. Dried debris may build up at the base.

A good toothbrush is vital in your efforts to maintain good oral health and a good looking smile. Some people prefer a traditional manual toothbrush and others favour an electric version. It's a good idea to discuss the two options with your dentist and ask for advice on the best option for you.

Below are some ideas to keep your toothbrush as clean as possible:

  • Always thoroughly rinse your toothbrush after use to remove debris. It is a good idea to change your toothbrush after a cold, flu or sore throat as germs may hide in the bristles.

  • Store your toothbrush upright in a cup, so that it may thoroughly dry out after use. Make sure that other family member's brushes do not touch one another.

  • Do not share brushes with anybody else, as germs can spread easily from one family member to another.

  • Remember to brush your teeth for at least two minutes each time you brush.

We are here to help you to keep a good looking smile in place. Remember that the team at Get Dental Plans are here to help you with all your dental insurance needs.

I was recommended to Paul Lewis for dental insurance by my dentist. Paul carefully explained all the features of the dental insurance plan and answered my numerous questions and concerns.

We have been delighted with Get Dental and would highly recommend it to individuals or other companies for dental insurance. The policy is inexpensive and gives a wide cover of all aspects of dental care.

Our practice has greatly benefited from working with Get Dental Plans mainly as a result of the Corporate dental plan from BUPA as this allows patients to receive the treatment they need rather than the treatment they can afford.
