How often should I change a manual toothbrush?
Dentists recommend that you should change your toothbrush every 3 months to ensure you’re giving your teeth the best possible clean.
When a toothbrush gets old, it stops being as effective which is why some toothbrushes use coloured bristles which fade over 3 months of use, clearly showing you when it’s time to change your toothbrush.
If you notice that the bristles on your toothbrush have become worn - they might become rough and change direction - it might be time to change it.
What toothbrush should my child use?
The type of toothbrush your child should use depends on their age.
When they’re 0 - 3 years old, you should use a washcloth or a finger-slip toothbrush with a rice-sized amount of toothpaste (it should be fluoride-free at this age).
Then, from the ages of 3 - 9, you should get a children’s toothbrush with soft bristles to be gentle on their gums - these toothbrushes tend to get bigger as your child ages, so pick one that’s suitable for their age group.
When they’re 10 years old and over, they can use an adult toothbrush.
Why do I need a different kind of toothbrush for my baby?
When you’re brushing your baby’s teeth or are teaching your child to brush their teeth, you may wonder why you’d need a different kind of toothbrush just for them.
Well the answer lies in how soft and easy to use baby toothbrushes are.
Children’s toothbrushes are designed to be easy to hold and have soft bristles that are kind to growing teeth.

Are electric toothbrushes better than manual toothbrushes?
Generally, studies show that electric toothbrushes reduce the amount of plaque compared to manual toothbrushes.
As electric toothbrushes don’t require the sweeping, scrubbing motion that manual toothbrushes do, they may be easier for those with limited mobility, like if you suffer from carpal tunnel or arthritis.
Electric toothbrushes tend to be better for the environment, too.
This is because usually, you will only need to replace the head of the electric toothbrush, compared to the entirety of it.
