In this post from Wilson Dental Group, we highlight some of the simple things you can do with your toothbrush (aside from brushing!) to keep your mouth as clean and healthy as possible.
One of the most important habits you can form is to always allow your toothbrush to completely air dry between uses. The best way to let the toothbrush air dry is by placing it in a toothbrush holder on the counter with the bristles pointing up. This is much better than putting it in a drawer, since it will take longer to dry in there.
Also, when you travel, make sure your toothbrush is dry before you seal it away in a travel container.
A good strategy to make sure their toothbrush has ample time to dry is to buy two toothbrushes. Alternate between the two, so each has time to fully dry out between uses.
Above all, replace your toothbrush (or toothbrushes) every 3-4 months, or sooner if you’ve had a cold.
