i change mine at least every three months, sometimes longer when its bristles still look good. :) i buy them in packs of 3 to save on the cost and to avoid forgetting it whenever i visit the grocery. also, to have available ones in case somebody in the family accidentally drops his/her in the toilet bowl. lol

I would have to go with every 2 to 3 months. If I have a cold, then I throw it out and get a new one sooner. I have a stockpile of toothbrushes; I have a preferred style and brand!

I believe if u are lazy in changing your tooth brush you must buy 2 or 3 brush at a time which will solve your problem of going to marker to buy your tooth brush and also if u want your teeth in good condition you must change your tooth brush with in 3 months....

yes you are right but i think that i can feel that how much my teeth are clean.. and i dont find any problem.. and i could clean my teeth with that brush too.. but buying more than one is not possible because i dont live alone.. you if someone ask for a brush then i have to give..

If u live in a family where there are many members than if you buy more than one brush you can keep it in safe place and if someone ask for the brush i think there should not be any hesitation that as they are ur family members.As a caution you can ask them to bring brush for u when they go to market.

I am not particular about how many months I'm using it already as long as it is still beautiful in my eyes I never change it. But if I can't take it anymore, then that's the time I will buy a new one.

Hi Kooltiger! I don't have a time line when to change my toothbrush. I usually change it, whenever I feel I don't like the way it brushes against my teeth. And also when I don't like the look of my toothbrush. But I think it takes me a month or two, at least before I get to change it. I think eight months is too long. Maybe you can ask someone who is dropping by the grocery, like your brother or sister if they can get you a toothbrush? Or you can always have an extra one. Like getting one, each time you get by supermarket? (^^,)

I use an electric toothbrush and the brush usually has a visual clue when it's gone bad. That's when I change the brush. I can't tell you how long it's been, but it's been at least 6 months since I changed the brush on my new toothbrush. Guess I better check...

I don't know. Its a brush, they function for a long time. I think the dentist suggestion of changing your brush every couple of months is just for people who don't know how to keep things clean. I change mine whenever I feel like it, which isn't often. Usually when I drop it into the toilet or something like that.

My children's dentist told me to change their toothbrush after every 3 months. But they are really lazy in brushing their teeth. They don't regularly brush three times a day. So I think 5 to 6 months lifetime of a toothbrush will do. But as for me, I make it a point to change my toothbrush every 3 months because I don't regularly go to the dentist. So I have to at least follow the basic guidelines on how to take care of our teeth.

Eight months? Whew! Haha, that's a really long period of time. You better change it every three months even when the brush still looks fine, because it probably has many germs in it already. I change mine every three months, and sometimes even earlier than that when I see my toothbrush looking nasty.

I change the tooth brush one time per month. It is more frequently than normal people. I buy 6~10 pieces of brush in one time, and of course, it will be cheaper than buy it one by one.

I generally change my toothbrush every three months. I don/t like using brush for more than three months. Also, it might not be good for oral health.

I usually use the same tooth brush for Six months, then the Brussels start to get worn out, and it is not as effective in cleaning your teeth.

Toothbrush - If a slight bend appears on the tip of the bristles, it is best to discard it.
I usually change my toothbrush within less than 3 months and sometimes even within 2 months depending on the quality of toothbrush, I have been using. To judge whether there is a need to change, I hold it against the light to see if the bristles are bent at the tip. If a slight bend appears, it is best to discard it. Over a period, you begin to feel that you are not feeling fresh in the mouth, even after extensive brushing. Think it is time to change the toothbrush.
