An Air-dried Toothbrush Is A Healthy Toothbrush

An Air-dried Toothbrush Is A Healthy Toothbrush Yuma

In this post from The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ, we highlight simple things you can do with your toothbrush to keep your mouth as clean and healthy as possible.

One of the most important habits anyone can form is to always let their toothbrush completely air dry between uses. The best way to do this is to place it in a toothbrush holder on the counter with the bristles pointing up. This is much better than sticking it away in a drawer, since it will take longer to dry in there.

Also, when you travel make sure your toothbrush is dry before you seal it away in a travel container.

A good strategy is to buy two toothbrushes. Then alternate between them so each one has time to fully dry out between uses.

Additional Tips

We also recommend (very highly) that you replace your toothbrush every three months or so. You don’t need to mark your calendar or set up an alert on your phone, but try to keep track of how long you’ve been using one.

While we’re at it: use a soft-bristled toothbrush. They’re much easier on your gums.

Should you use a manual toothbrush, or an electric one? That is a topic unto itself, and  we’ll save it for a future blog post.
