my dentist reckons me to change my toothbrush every 3 months. but eventually i change mine every month. i use oral-b because i think it's the best and it's very comfortable and it doesn't bleed my gums. i use the same kind one but i change the colours often. haha! well, i'm very particular with my toothbrush!

Im sorry to hear that. You should change your toothbrush once a month. I bet you get canker sores alot. Canker sores can be caused by not changing your toothbrush often enough!

Usually I will change my toothbrush for about three months. As I also heard it's the best from the dentist. I love China

I think oral-B is good but I can not get Oral-B in Russia. I use blend-a-med here. soft one. I cant stand the hard and medium one, they make my teethgum bleed.

i use Oral-B toothbrushes, and the ones i usually buy have the blue tips on the bristles and when the blue changes to white that's when i normally change my toothbrush

we change them every couple of months. i also read that after you are sick, like a cold or the flu, that you should get rid of your toothbrush because germs can live for a long time on it.
