Your mouth is the gateway to your body and is a great place for harboring bacteria that can make you sick and cause tooth decay and gum disease.
-Don’t share your toothbrush with others!
-Thoroughly rinse your brush after each use to remove any remaining toothpaste and debris.
-Don’t store all the family toothbrushes in one container and don’t share toothpaste with someone who is sick. You will transfer germs.
-Make sure your toothbrush is dry before placing it inside a toothbrush cover. Bacteria thrive in warm, moist places.
-Wash your hands before and after brushing if possible – they carry additional forms of bacteria.
-Don’t forget to replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months or when the bristles start to fray.
