Time for a Toothbrush Replacement

According to The American Dental Association, it is recommended that you should change your toothbrush every 3 months. Toothbrushes will weaken and become less effective in removing plaque from gums and teeth. Another reason why 3 months is a good range to replace your toothbrush is that germs can build up in the bristles, allowing harmful bacteria into your mouth.
