Check your toothbrush
How to do it
Give your toothbrush a once-over before the next time you brush. If the bristles are bent and frayed or you can't really remember the last time you changed it, add a new toothbrush to your shopping list.
The lifespan of a toothbrush is only 3 months, but many of us push our luck and keep using them much longer than we should. Since older brushes can be a hotbed of bacteria, changing your toothbrush often will benefit your oral health and overall well-being.
