How long does a toothbrush last?

Most people don’t change their toothbrush as often as they should. Dentists recommend that you should change your toothbrush every three months (at least four times a year). Children wear out their toothbrush even faster than adults because they have a tendency to bite and chew on the brush.

The foundation for healthy teeth in children is laid during the first year of life. Studies show that there is a connection between poor eating and brushing habits in one to two year olds and tooth decay in three year old. We also know that children who get cavities in their baby teeth run a greater risk of developing cavities in their adult teeth. To ensure healthy teeth in the years to come, establishing good habits at a very early age is the best you can do for your children. Change your baby’s toothbrush every three months, or after the bristles have started to spread out.
