Did you know it’s important to replace your toothbrush regularly? Well, it’s true. However, many people have a hard time replacing their brush because they’re not sure when it’s necessary. If you’re one of these people, our dentist, Dr. John Kim, is happy to tell you when you should replace your toothbrush in Litchfield Park, Arizona.

-Replace your toothbrush after you have been using it for 3-4 months.

-Replace your toothbrush when the toothbrush bristles are worn down or frayed.

-Replace your toothbrush after you have been sick.

If you use an electric toothbrush, you shouldn’t replace the entire tool. In fact, you only need to replace the head of the brush. Replacing the entire brush can be expensive. If you’re concerned about toothbrush germs, you can always sanitize your smile-cleaning tool by soaking it in antibacterial mouthwash or using a handy toothbrush sanitizer.
