An Air-dried Toothbrush Is A Healthy Toothbrush Mt. Vernon

Today in our dental blog, we’ll 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 Mt. Vernon 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 will take longer to dry in there.

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

A good strategy is to make sure your toothbrush has ample time to dry is to buy two toothbrushes at your local drugstore. Then alternate between the two so each has time to fully dry out between uses.

Remember to replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months, or sooner if you’ve had a cold.
