An Air-dried Toothbrush Is A Healthy Toothbrush Minneapolis

Today in our Maple Grove dental blog we will highlight some of the simple things you can do with your toothbrush to keep your mouth as clean and healthy as possible.

One of the most important habits Minneapolis residents can form is to always allow their toothbrush to completely air dry between uses. The best way to let the toothbrush air dry is by placing it in a toothbrush holder on the counter with the bristles pointing up. This method of storage is much better than sticking it away in a drawer since it will take longer to dry in there.

Also, when you travel away from the Champlin, Plymouth MN, or Osseo area, make sure your toothbrush is dry before you seal it away in a travel container.

A good strategy for Maple Grove residents to make sure their toothbrush has ample time to dry is to buy two toothbrushes at your Minneapolis drugstore. Then alternate between the two so each has time to fully dry out between uses.

And Minneapolis dental patients should remember to replace their toothbrush (or toothbrushes) every 3-4 months, or sooner if they’ve had a cold!
