Your toothbrush can play a big role in your daily routine.  It can keep your teeth healthy and bright.  But a newer, cleaner toothbrush could also play a key part in your overall health.

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.
