Today in our Allen Park 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.
Your dentist will tell you that one of the most important habits Detroit 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 Dearborn, Allen Park, or Detroit area, make sure your toothbrush is dry before you seal it away in a travel container.
A good strategy for Allen Park residents to make sure their toothbrush has ample time to dry is to buy two toothbrushes at your Detroit drugstore. Then alternate between the two so each has time to fully dry out between uses.
And Detroit dental patients should remember to replace their toothbrush (or toothbrushes) every 3-4 months, or after they’ve had a cold!
