Choosing the right toothbrush and knowing how to use it properly are fundamental to good dental care. However, once purchased, many people do not take proper care of their toothbrush. They continue to use it long after it should have been replaced.
Some best practises for toothbrushes include:
– Rinse the brush after use
– Never share even with family members
– Replace when frayed or worn
