When Should You Change the Head of Your Electric Toothbrush?
Posted on 8/23/2021 by Evan
Whether it is manual or electric, the bristles of your toothbrush tend to wear out and degrade. The brush head on an electric toothbrush is made of several bristles clustered together. You are supposed to replace the head of your electric toothbrush after three months since continued use of an electric toothbrush gets it worn out. Read on for different signs that will let you know you need to replace the head of your electric toothbrush.
Change the Head of Your Electric Toothbrush
There comes a time when the bristles on your electric toothbrush split, fray, or are no longer in the right formation. If you notice this, it is time for you to replace the head. This is the most common indicator of a worn-out toothbrush. However, it is not always the case of waiting until your toothbrush's head looks worn-out; sometimes, you can fail to notice the damage on the bristles. Therefore, we recommend that you immediately notice signs of wearing out on the head of your toothbrush and replace it. This is even when you have not used it for over three months. A toothbrush's durability depends on its quality, and some tend to wear out even before the recommended three-month period. In most cases, the bristles of a toothbrush hold in shape firmly for three months.
The extended use of the same toothbrush head will result in deformation of its bristles, hence, ineffective cleaning. Similarly, brushing with too much pressure can often lead to wearing out of toothbrush heads faster than usual. It is important to note that damaged toothbrush bristles do more harm than good to your teeth and gums. Therefore, it is always important to replace the head of your electric toothbrush within three months or less. Visit our offices for more information on how to manage your toothbrush.
