Are you looking for ways to keep your smile cavity free? If so, you have come to the right place! Here at Bright Dental in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, we care for your smile and oral health, which is why our team is happy to give you insight on why brushing is important.

Did you know, your toothbrush can keep bacteria, which can spread to your teeth? Well, it’s true! If you try to wash off your toothbrush each day before and after use, you could keep bacteria from your teeth. Other bacteria or food particles can also get wedged in the bristles of the brush, which is why keeping your brush clean can also keep your teeth clean.

Your toothbrush should always be swapped every four to six months according to the American Dental Association. If your bristles become too worn or frayed, they will not work or scrub your teeth properly. It is also a fantastic idea to switch out your toothbrush any time after you become sick or suffer an illness.
