Surprising Details You Never Knew: About Toothbrushes!

Are you under the impression that you know all you need to know about your toothbrush? If so, then you may be surprised to learn that we often discover our Ankeny, IA patients have in-depth knowledge about this dental hygiene product … but there is often a fact or two left to be uncovered. Rather than miss out on information that can most certainly help you with your day-to-day dental care (and the long-term success of your smile), we’re front and center, offering you new insight into this very important smile care product.

Electric Isn’t Always Better

Surprise! An electric toothbrush isn’t always the better of your choices. For some, relying on a manual toothbrush and toothpaste is a perfectly suitable and effective means of maintaining optimal oral health. If this is the case, then feel free to keep on going with your successful approach to care. If not, feel free to test out a powered brush. It’s up to you!

Keeping It Forever Isn’t A Good Thing

Yes, it’s wonderful to try to preserve the items you purchase for yourself! With that said, it’s not necessarily a good choice to try to keep your toothbrush around forever. When you use this smile care item for longer than about three to four months, it stops working as well. In turn, you become more vulnerable to the development of oral health issues like tooth decay. Remember to keep up with using a fresh brush, when it’s time.

You Can Recycle Your Old Toothbrush

Did you know that your smile care (and our insistence that you don’t use just one toothbrush forever) can be somewhat friendly to the environment? Rather than feeling compelled to trash your toothbrush, we remind you that you may check out brush recycling programs that make it easy to practice green living!
