How often should you change your toothbrush?

It’s a question we are asked very very often.

Dentists recommend changing your toothbrush no more than every 3 months but it also really depends on how you brush your teeth and what your preference is.  Obviously we, and Dentists, because they’re the experts, would not recommend going over 3 months, however, you can change it earlier.  

Sometimes I like to change mine after 2 months depending on how heavy I’ve been using it.  Other times it’s 3 months.  There’s no rhyme or reason sometimes we brush harder, other times we are lighter.

If the bristles splay, then change the toothbrush.  Some of us are lighter brushers and some are heavy.  For the heavy brushers I recommend our firm bristle, it’s pretty tough and will last you 3 months.

Did you know we should also be changing our toothbrushes every time we are ill.  Be that with a cold, the flu or sickness.

Given that a lot of us have been poorly recently and with Coronovirus effecting many, you should be changing your toothbrush pretty quickly just in case there is any lingering bacteria on your toothbrush.

You will not make yourself ill again but it is however a bit icky right?  to be using the same toothbrush when you’ve been ill.
