Toothbrush Maintenance

Rancho Cucamonga CA Dentist Protects Your Brush

At the office of your Rancho Cucamonga CA dentists at Family Specialty Dentistry, we have equipped our office with the very best in dental technology currently available in order to provide the highest quality care and most up-to-date treatments out there. By combining our years of training, education and experience with these tools- we are confident more and more in our abilities to bring every single patient that walks into our office a healthy smile that can last a lifetime.

Of course, it’s not only our efforts here at the office that go into long-lasting dental care. You actually have one of the best tools in the world for maintaining your oral health at home- your toothbrush. Below we have provided some tips and tricks to keep your toothbrush in top form for every cleaning, every time.

-Before and after brushing, wash the bristles of your brush off under hot water while stroking a finger through the head. This combination should allow for most leftover particles stuck on the brush to be washed away in time for your next scrubbing.

-Place your brush in a holder that allows for it to be upright and with access to plenty of air. Letting it dry naturally is better than placing a lid or cap on the head, which can actually cause bacteria growth.

-Don’t let the head of the brush make contact with other surfaces, including other brushes, to prevent cross contamination.

-Replace your brush every 3-4 months with a brand new one to ensure the integrity and germ-free regimens every single time!

Combine the above steps with daily brushing and flossing, alongside twice-yearly exams and cleanings with your Rancho Cucamonga CA dentists to keep your oral health at its best! Call our office today at (909) 985-9898 or click here to schedule an appointment today!
