How dirty is your toothbrush? Perhaps not as bad as you think…

22nd May 2013

A visit to your dental hygienist at least twice a year is a must and of course daily brushing twice a day is also recommended.

But what about your toothbrush?

How often should it be replaced? And how dirty does your toothbrush get from use.

We recommend changing your brush at least every 3-4 months to maximise its efficiency.

A new study in America suggest that perhaps our concerns about how dirty it gets aren’t as necessary as we once believed.

See this link for an article about the study.

We thank the Academy of Osseointegration for bringing to our attention the article.

Should you have any questions about this blog or would like to make an appointment see our hygienist team then please call us on 0141 339 7579.
