Bacteria can find its way to your toothpaste in two interesting ways – When you wash your hands and dirty water splashes onto it and also when your toothbrush falls down on the floor.
- For starters, you buy yourselves a new toothbrush
Toothbrush should be replaced every three months.
- Use a good toothpaste
Buy toothpaste that contains triclosan. Triclosan has been shown as more efficient than classical toothpaste, based on fluorine in the destruction of oral bacteria.
- Wash your toothbrush
Wash your toothbrush each and every time after you are done washing your teeth. Feel free to wash it with hydrogen as well.
- Provide air
You should not keep your toothbrush in hermetically sealed boxes, dentists say. If you want to prevent it from being exposed to the outdoors, place it in a box with holes, which, at the same time will be protecting it from bacteria and it will provide air.
