We all know that brushing our teeth well and regularly is a key step in staying as cavity free as possible, so as to avoid tooth filling and other dental work.
However, have you considered that keeping your toothbrush clean and germ free is also important?
Here are a few simple tips for keeping your toothbrush clean.
If you do a search online for information about keeping your toothbrush germ free, you may find some suggestions like putting it through the wash cycle in the dishwasher, or rinsing with mouthwash or rubbing alcohol. In general, dental associations don’t endorse these practices, as it has been found that they don’t make a great deal of difference, and can damage also the toothbrush.
Cleaning your teeth should be a regular part of your routine. Adding the care of your toothbrush to that routine won’t add a lot of extra time and will help you keep it in top condition.
