Are you looking for tips and tricks to keep your smile healthy and bright? If so, you have come to the right place! Here at Dr. Brough Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Layton, Utah, our team is happy to give you tips on toothbrush care, which can help keep your smile healthy too.

Did you know, your toothbrush can harbor bacteria, which spreads to your teeth and affects your oral health? Well, it’s true! If you wash off your toothbrush every day before and after use, you could keep bacteria from your teeth. Other bacteria or food particles can also get stuck in the bristles of the toothbrush, which is why keeping your brush clean can also keep your teeth clean and smile healthy.

It is also important to know that your toothbrush should always be replaced every four to six months according to the American Dental Association. If your bristles become too frayed, they will not work or scrub your teeth correctly. It is also a great idea to switch out your toothbrush any time you become sick or suffer an illness.
