How often should we change our toothbrushes?

Dental hygienist Aiko Fukuda

Hello I am Fukuda, Dental hygienist of Azabu Tokyo Dental Clinic.


Some patient ask us “How often should we change our tooth brushes?”

We recommend that you change your toothbrush every 4 weeks.

If you brush your teeth with worn or widen bristles, it will be difficult to remove tartar completely.
Also, using the same moist toothbrush for a long time may allow bacteria to proliferate.
Personally, I replace my toothbrush at least once a month.
