If you have a “Crest Kid” smile and want to keep it long after your teenage years are gone, then it is very important to change your toothbrush on a regular basis. Using a good toothbrush is a key factor for good oral health. Toothbrushes that are in good shape keep your smile beautiful and your breath fresh. However, if you neglect your oral health it can eventually lead to problems with your physical health.
Therefore, it is recommended that your toothbrush be changed at least every three months whether the toothbrush is electric or manual. If the bristles look worn down before the three months are up then go ahead and get a new one, you don’t have to wait. Nevertheless, of course if your dentist tells you to change your toothbrush, do it! So take care of your toothbrush and your toothbrush will take care of you.
