Today in our Lafayette dental blog we will highlight some of the simple things you can do with your toothbrush to keep your mouth as clean and healthy as possible.
One of the most important habits Boulder residents can form is to always allow their 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 method of storage is much better than sticking it away in a drawer since it’s unlikely to dry there.
Also, when you travel away from the Boulder, Boulder County, or Lafayette, CO area, make sure your toothbrush is dry before you seal it away in a travel container.
A good strategy for Lafayette residents to make sure their toothbrush has ample time to dry is to buy two toothbrushes at your Boulder drugstore. Then alternate between the two so each has time to fully dry out between uses.
And Boulder dental patients should remember to replace their toothbrush (or toothbrushes) every 3-4 months, or after they’ve had a cold!
