How Long Do You Use Your Toothbrush Before You Change It? by DanseMacabre(m): 6:25pm On Nov 26, 2017
Different medical practioners, especially dentists, have always opined that your toothbrush should be changed every three months.


However, I've noticed that most Nigerians are guilty of disregarding this oral health tip and by so doing indicate caring less about oral hygiene.


This includes yours sincerely, because my last toothbrush lasted for six months or thereabouts grin



So let's be truthful: how often do you change your toothbrush?

I found myself buying toothbrushes often. Not because a dentist recommends so but because of personal reasons.
Got one on Monday and this was replaced by a 2week-old brush. It just happens.
The older ones are still present though cheesy grin

There is a caveat to the 3 months duration. It is either at the end of 3 months or when the user feels the bristles have become weak due to use.

I am a microbiologist, so when it comes to hygiene I don't joke with it.

Sometimes one month, and sometimes not even close to that, because majority of the toothbrush they sell now, is nothing to write home about.

And the funniest part of it is that, I buy in bunch, thinking it would be better than what I have been using before, but still go ahead and buy nonsense.

I just pray most of the times to see visitors who would come visit me and need toothbrush to clean their teeth when they sleep over, so that it can finish quickly.

According to your question, " I use my toothbrush 7min Max everyday "

Most Nigerians have mouth odour because of poor hygiene practices, they can use a toothbrush for a whole year and even more without thinking it’s abnormal. That’s why the poor toothbrush would be frayed and overused and ineffective also.
