There are simple things you can do with your toothbrush to keep your mouth as clean and healthy as possible, and Jordan Landing Smiles dentists would like to share some of them.
One of the most important things you can do is always allow your toothbrush to completely air dry between uses. Place it in a toothbrush holder on the counter with the bristles pointing up. This is much better than putting it in a drawer, since it will take longer to dry in there.
When you travel, make sure your toothbrush is dry before you put it in a baggie or some other travel container.
One strategy is to buy two toothbrushes. Then alternate between the two so each has time to fully dry out between uses. Remember to replace your toothbrush (or brushes) every three to four months. If you’ve been ill, replace it right away.
