Some says that it must be changed every 3 months. How frequently do you change your toothbrush?

After working in a dentist office I have learned that we should only use soft toothbrushes. The medium and hard brushes wear down the enamel on our teeth. Also, when you get a cold or the flu, it is time to change it again. There is an alternative to this one though. Soak it in hydrogen peroxide once a week. I do this over night with my battery powered brush and it also cleans out the mechanism. Also, when the bristles start to flair out or wear down it is time for a new one. I like to keep several extras for visitors that forget theirs and I grab one for camping trips and overniters. I was raised to be prepared for anything!

Thank you for the best response vote. I am always happy to help people improve on their health and life style. I was raised in a dental office being around my aunt who was a dental assistant. I later worked in an office and I learned how important flossing and a good toothbrush could be. Nothing in the world like a healthy smile! That is one of the first things I notice about a man is if his teeth are clean, his breath is fresh and that he has good hygiene.
