Do You Have Amazing Toothbrush Habits?


keeping your smile health protected.


What Type Of Bristles Do You Use?

Do you use soft bristles? Medium bristles? Firm or hard bristles? If you want to avoid damaging your teeth (by stripping your enamel), hurting your gums (by irritating them), and leading to problems instead of carefully and thoroughly cleaned teeth, then remember the following: Soft bristles are the only way to go. Anything that has a harder firmness is not a good choice for your smile health.

How Long Have You Had That Brush?

How long have you been using the toothbrush in your bathroom right now? A month? Six months? A year? If it’s been a longer period of time than four months, you’re out of luck! You need to throw it away. Why? Well, bristles can’t keep performing optimally forever. They do a great job for about three to four months when it comes to protecting your smile health. After that, it’s time for new bristles because yours just aren’t as effective anymore.
