Health Tip: Choosing the Right Toothbrush

Using the right toothbrush can help you care for your teeth and gums. But it’s also important to make sure it’s properly cleaned.

The website offers these suggestions:

  • Both electric and manual toothbrushes can clean teeth well, so choose what is easiest for you.
  • Make sure the toothbrush’s shape and size fit comfortably in your mouth.
  • After brushing, rinse your toothbrush thoroughly under running water to wash away debris.
  • Place the toothbrush in an upright position and allow it to air dry. Don’t put it inside a container or cover it.
  • Replace your toothbrush every three to four months, or sooner if bristles appear frayed.
