Due to the importance of your toothbrush, it is important to make sure it is always safely stored and cared for. If for any reason you are not storing your toothbrush properly, you could be wasting all the time you’re brushing with it, as it will fail to protect your smile as intended. Furthermore, it is important to make sure your products are reliable and effective for the jobs with which they are tasked.

Caring for your toothbrush includes always storing it properly. Never store your toothbrush with other toothbrushes or in any area in which it can become contaminated. Always make sure to store your toothbrush upright in an aired-out position where moisture cannot pool. Furthermore, always make sure to never allow anyone else to use your toothbrush or never use anyone else’s toothbrush.

Toothbrushes break down from time to time. Generally, toothbrushes wear out after 3 to 4 months and need to be replaced at this time. If you notice that your toothbrush is wearing out faster than this, replace it as needed. For children, they will need their toothbrushes replaced even more frequently.
