Have you ever noticed your own toothbrush? How long has your toothbrush been used? Toothbrushes are an important tool for protecting oral health, but many people pay little attention to the protection and use of toothbrushes. Sometimes the bristles have mostly fallen and fallen off, but they are still in use, which can easily cause damage to the mouth. Therefore, everyone should have a certain understanding of the health knowledge of toothbrushes in order to return to a healthy environment.
After each use of the toothbrush, rinse the toothbrush and remove the moisture as much as possible. Put the toothbrush head up in the mouth cup, and pay attention to the place where the sunlight is ventilated and away from the sink and toilet. Dry and receive sunlight for sterilization.
Two to three toothbrushes can be used alternately to extend the drying time of the toothbrush. This is especially important for people with gingivitis and periodontitis. Rotation can also maintain the elasticity of the bristles.
The toothbrushes currently on the market are used for 2 to 3 months, and the bristles are bent. The curved bristles not only do not easily clean the food residue in the teeth, but also scratch the gums. In addition, it is easy to retain bacteria in the toothbrush head that has been used for a long time. Therefore, it is generally recommended to replace the toothbrush every 2 to 3 months. But people who brush their teeth 3 times a day or who like to brush their teeth with warm water, the bristles wear faster, and the toothbrush should be changed once a month.
If you have a cold or other infectious disease, it is best to replace it with a new toothbrush. Before using a new toothbrush, it should be hot in hot water to soften the bristles and sterilize.
In addition, family members do not put the toothbrush together, but the multi-cylinder is placed, which is more conducive to the prevention and control of infectious diseases.
