Germs and Your Toothbrush

app-connected-toothbrush-tracks-your-habits-rewards-you-with-free-stuff-6092c7d44bWith warm welcomes to everyone that walks in the door, I noticed that a lot of people were coughing, sneezing, and overall not feeling well. Its January and the frightful cold and flu season is here again! It is crucial that after recovering from your cold to avoid becoming sick again is replacing your toothbrush. Germs do live in your toothbrush. These flu and cold germs can linger on the bristles and make you risk prolonging your sickness by using the same toothbrush.

Some tips to keep your toothbrush germ free:

Before you brush and after you brush, wash your hands.

Dr. B recommends you changing your toothbrush out every 3 months or after you get better from being sick. The bacteria can be pretty extensive after 90 days and worn bristles of your toothbrush become effective in properly cleaning your teeth. The bristles can also be damaging to teeth if used too long!

So the next time you get sick and go to the pharmacy to pick up some medicine, pick up a new toothbrush too so you can change it out when you get better.
