Toothbrush Oasis Dental WA 98683When it comes to toothbrush health and safety, you want to make sure that you are making the most out of the toothbrush that you are using on the outside of your teeth.

When it comes to brushing with one, you are putting it in your mouth so sanitation is required in order to get the most out of the toothbrush that you are using. With this in mind, you want to look into whether or not you should be using a wet toothbrush constantly in your mouth.

Tips for a Healthier Toothbrush

When it comes to a healthier, better toothbrush, you want to make sure that you are letting it dry in between uses. This not only ensures that mold, mildew and other bacteria do not grow on it, but it also ensures that it is completely sanitized before using it again.

Sanitizing the toothbrush or replacing it every 3 months is highly recommended to ensure that you do not keep swapping the germs in the mouth. Just like anything else, having something clean to clean out your mouth is recommended. You need to make sure that you are smiling healthier and brighter and with the use of a cleaner toothbrush, you can ensure that you are.

Germs and bacteria hide in the bristles of the toothbrush and can make you sick, even if you were not sick when you used the brush. If you were sick, throwing out the toothbrush a few days into the sickness is highly recommended.
