How important is your toothbrush for your dental hygiene
As said in the beginning, this is one of the most important items you can use for dental hygiene. You use it literally every day and put it in direct contact with your teeth when you brush. And if you are not brushing your teeth at least three times a day you are making a huge mistake as it will affect your teeth in the long run. You are allowing bacteria and germs to grow freely in your mouth.
This is because food debris get stuck easily between your teeth and is difficult to remove without the right tools. If you let it sit too long it will rot your teeth enamel and soft tissue. This is the number one cause of dental cavities, and other gum infections like gingivitis and periodontitis. To avoid this to ruin your teeth, a nice dental cleaning routine is necessary. Your toothbrush is one of the key players along with mouthwash and dental floss for the ob.
I suggest you to brush your teeth with gentle and slow strokes. A mistake I see very often with our patients is that they brush rapidly and aggressively. This will only hurt your teeth enamel and gums, you can even cut your soft tissue and cause massive bleeding. Take things with calm and take your time, it is not a race after all.
How to clean your toothbrush correctly
To ensure you have a good dental hygiene routine it is important to clean your toothbrush after every use. Cleaning it before use will kill all bacteria before putting it in your mouth. The most important thing about cleaning it is avoid putting it dirty and in contact with your teeth and gums. Scrubbing your teeth with a dirty brush is just gross, avoid this practice at all times. This can cause many dental diseases as said before
I suggest using alcohol to clean your tooth brush and also boiling it in water for a couple of seconds works like a charm. Both methods are enough to kill germs and bacteria and do not worry about melting the plastic in the process. Afterwards use a clean towel to dry it and stored in a dry place as well. You can use a case or a drawer, forget about storing it in the bathroom. Keep it safe in your bedroom where is less germs.
If you have an electric toothbrush then opt for the alcohol method. Just remember to rinse it with plenty of water before using it to brush your teeth.
When is the right time to change your tooth brush
You should change your toothbrush every 3 months or so. It will depend on how much you use it and how to use it. One clear signal is the bristles, if they are open up then it is time to get a new one. You have to take into account also the color and the smell even so it is not suggested to use one for more than 3 months, it is pretty unhygienic and nasty. In case you are wondering how to pick a new one I got some tips for you. This will help you a ton to improve your dental hygiene.
You have to pick a soft bristle toothbrush because they are the best for your teeth. You do not have to be aggressive as it can damage your teeth like we mentioned above, soft bristles help with this problem a lot. Medium and hard bristles have a particular scenario for its use but overall, soft bristle is the way to go. After you are a pro at this, you can choose whatever brand, handle you like. Remember these tips also works with electric toothbrush which is also a popular choice for dental hygiene.
