Health Tip: Choosing the Right Toothbrush
And keeping it clean

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Using the right toothbrush can help you care for your teeth and gums. But it's also important to make sure it's properly cleaned.

The Mouthhealthy.org website offers these suggestions:

  • Both electric and manual toothbrushes can clean teeth well, so choose what is easiest for you.
  • Make sure the toothbrush's shape and size fit comfortably in your mouth.
  • After brushing, rinse your toothbrush thoroughly under running water to wash away debris.
  • Place the toothbrush in an upright position and allow it to air dry. Don't put it inside a container or cover it.
  • Replace your toothbrush every three to four months, or sooner if bristles appear frayed.
