Baby Dental, Child Toothbrush Maintenance

Friday, Feb. 9th 2018 11:27 AM

Question: 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.

Reply: For a child and adults, you should consider getting a new toothbrush three to four months soon if you been sick. You want to replace a tooth brush when bristles become frayed and worn, toothbrushes will wear out more rapidly depending on factors unique to the person using it.  Therefore check brush bristles often for wear and replace when needed. Note: Children’s toothbrushes often need replacing more frequently then adult brushes.
