Walnut Creek dentists on that Clean Brush Feeling
Your Walnut Creek dentists know what it means to battle against germs and bacteria on a daily basis. For that very reason, we utilize state-of-the-art techniques, products and procedures not only within the confines of our office- but in our personal lives as well. If there is one thing we know- it is that bacteria and germs can be persistent and constantly surround us, so warding them off is important in maintaining both oral and whole-body-health.
One of the “state-of-the-art tools” mentioned above? Yeah, it’s probably one you use yourself at home on a daily basis: your toothbrush! Who would have thought that this simple plastic stick could eliminate so many germs and bacteria from your life!
And while you should be utilizing your brush at least twice a day for two minutes per session, you will want it to be in top-shape at these points…right? For that very reason, the following brush care tips are important to follow so that for the other 23 hours and 55 minutes a day your brush is not in your mouth- that it can be as germ-free as can be:
-Rinse your brush off with hot water after brushing to remove debris.
-Store the brush in an open container in an upright position.
-Allow the brush to dry completely and make no contact with other objects or surfaces.
-Replace your brush every 3 to 4 months.
-Never share your brush with anyone, even your most beloved partners.
Follow these simple tips and your mouth will be ready to receive a germ-free brush that can eliminate any pesky lingering bacteria!
