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