Teeth Care Tactics
Think of your toothbrush as a disposable item. Replace it every few months.
Because the moist environment of the bathroom is ideal for microoganisms to surive, itās a good idea to keep your toothbrush in your bedroom.
When you have a cold or the flu, replace your toothbrush while you are sick and again when you have recovered.
Before brushing, soften the toothbrush bristles by soaking them in warm tap water.
For sensitive teeth, try a desensitizing toothpaste.
Advertisements frequently show a toothbrush covered with a large dollop of toothpaste. Actually, you need only a pea-sized amount of toothpaste for each brushing.
