How often should you change your toothbrush?


The discipline of brushing teeth is the cornerstone of having bright smiles and strong teeth and gums for many years. In case of neglect, it is seen that patients receive a doctor’s appointment before they know it with different symptoms such as pain, tooth decay, ache. To protect your teeth, brushing is a must. But of course, teeth brushing has correct techniques that you should follow. Incorrect brushing styles can also cause the above-mentioned dental problems.

How should I brush my teeth?

The 45-degree angle is the key to teeth brushing. You should put your toothbrush to your teeth with this angle. In the beginning, starting with the outer surface of teeth is correct. Then, the inner surfaces and the chewing surfaces come.

It should not be forgotten that it must last two minutes per teeth brushing.

Teeth should be brushed two times a day without skipping.

What are the mistakes that you should avoid while teeth brushing?

Without knowing, the patients MİGHT BE suffer from tooth pain because of wrong or missing techniques and tips. Here is the list of mistakes of tooth brushing you may be doing the whole time:

How to choose the correct toothbrush?

An ideal toothbrush should be of medium hardness. It should have neither too hard nor too soft bristles. The brush head should be small (it is also a significant factor while choosing a toothbrush for a child, too.).

You should have at least two toothbrushes. If the toothbrush is used before it is completely dry, it will remain soft and cannot work as its function. Therefore, brushing with another dry toothbrush saves you time.

How often should you change your toothbrush?

Old toothbrushes cannot provide the desired efficiency as they cannot fulfill their duties. Therefore, when replacing a toothbrush, you should first look at the bristles. If these bristles do not stand parallel to each other, it indicates that it is time to replace them.

You should change your toothbrush at the end of the 3rd month on average. If it has lost its function long before these three months, the change should be made earlier.
