A toothbrush is like a password.
How? You choose a good toothbrush, you don’t share it with anyone and you change it every 3 months!
WHEN DO I CHANGE MY TOOTHBRUSH?
It is recommended that you change your toothbrush every three months. Remember, when the season changes, so should your toothbrush. Or, if your toothbrush is showing signs of wear and tear, such as frayed or flattened bristles, replace it earlier.
WHY SHOULD YOU CHANGE YOUR TOOTHBRUSH?
When the bristles on your toothbrush become worn down, they do not clean your teeth as well as they should, leaving you at risk of plaque build-up, which leads to tooth decay and gum disease.
A fresh new toothbrush helps to prevent plaque build-up, ensuring that your teeth stay as clean and healthy as possible.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ELECTRIC TOOTHBRUSH AND A MANUAL TOOTHBRUSH?
Manual toothbrushes can brush the teeth well, however, the correct technique is super important to do so. In comparison to an electric toothbrush, it can remove plaque and reduce gum inflammation more easily than a manual toothbrush, making it easier to clean well.
Electric toothbrush heads come in a variety of sizes making it easier to reach those difficult spots. The head spins making it effective even when the brush isn't moving, and it has a bigger handle which is easier to hold than the handle of a manual toothbrush.
WHERE CAN I GET A SUSTAINABLE TOOTHBRUSH?
DNTL code stocks a range of bamboo sustainable dental supplies which are completely biodegradable and compostable. Electric toothbrushes are also sustainable as they are rechargeable, and the brush heads are recyclable.
HOW CAN I RECYCLE MY TOOTHBRUSH?
DNTL Code is part of the Colgate Oral Care Recycling Program. Toothpaste tubes, tube caps, floss containers, toothbrushes, and electric toothbrush heads are all collected and sent off to TerraCycle to be made into benches at the park.
