When it comes to your teeth the humble tooth brush the most important tool in keeping them in tip-top condition. Improper care for your tooth brush, or failing to replace it regularly, can mean your teeth are not getting the thorough clean they need to thrive.

if the bristle on your toothbrush become bent or frayed it needs to be replaced as soon as the bristles start to look worn. A toothbrush showing even the smallest signs of fraying or bending will not remove as much plaque from your teeth as a new tooth brush. Keeping a toothbrush longer can lead to bacteria buildup, which can cause a slew of oral health problems.

To keep bacteria away rinse your toothbrush well after use, store in a dry place. Keep the brushes separated from others to prevent cross-contamination and avoid storing in a closed container as moist areas are particularly prone to bacterial growth.

Using a soft toothbrush will help avoid irritating your gums especially if you have a low platelet count. We have popped our very own soft Kit toothbrush in Kit for Cancer case.
