Child Toothbrush Maintenance

Monday, Jan. 11th 2010 7:31 PM

How often should you change out a child tooth brush?  I only change my own tooth brush about every eight to nine months. Sooner if the bristles start looking bad.  Should you change out a kids toothbrush more?  If so when is a good time frame to get them a new one?  I was thinking it should be about the same as what I am doing now for myself.  However someone said I need to do it more often then that.

    I use to change my son tooth brush every three months. He was pretty ruff with is tooth bushes so changing them sooner for me was better. I would think you would want to change out your tooth brush at least every three to four months.

    I change out my own tooth brush every six months but that because I take better care of my brush then my son does.

    Just something you may also want to know about toothbrush care. It as been recommended that one should keep their toothbrush at least 6 feet away from their toilet. You want to do that to avoid airborne particles from settling on your tooth brush when flushing your toilet.

    Since some bathrooms are can be small if you do not have the room to keep the toothbrush far enough away, store it in the medicine cabinet or a draw.
