Key takeaways:

– Toothbrushes should never be shared or touch each other to prevent the transfer of bacteria

– To thoroughly clean your toothbrush, rinse it well after use and soak it in mouthwash every now and then

– Replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months or whenever your teeth or gums have been affected by a dental condition

Also, a 15-minute soak in mouthwash will help to deep-clean the brush and bristles.

If you have doubts about which toothbrush you should choose, speak to your dentist to get personalised advice.
