Did you know you should replace your toothbrush every 3 months? Studies show that after three months of normal wear and tear, toothbrushes are much less effective at removing plaque from teeth and gums compared to new ones.
Toothbrushes can be breeding grounds for germs, fungus and bacteria, which after a while can build up to significant levels. It is also important to change toothbrushes after you’ve had a cold, the flu, a mouth infection or a sore throat. That’s because germs can hide in toothbrush bristles and lead to reinfection.
