I change mine every three months. My dentist told me there's a lot of bacterial growth in the bristles, so that's often he's recommended I change the toothbrushes - once at each visit an then one more time in between visits.

according to some dentists, we'd better change our toothbrush every two months. perhaps six months is too long.

Hi there, The rule with tooth brush change in our house is every 1-2 months. Our tooth brushes hold bacteria, so its a good idea to get into the habit of buying a new brush every 1-2 months, more so if they look tattered and torn...

Once in three months i feel that one has to change the tooth brush, which i do. Six months is pretty too long, i think.
