EVERYTHING About your Toothbrush during COVID 19


It’s likely you don’t give much thought to the tool you use to clean your teeth every day. Dr. Deepak Rudramoorthy a cosmetic dentist at Diva Dental Care explains that most of them ignore some important points when they buy their toothbrush. Remember a little carelessness in choosing the right toothbrush may lead to damage to your gums and teeth.

Toothbrush storage during COVID -19?

Tooth Brush Social Distance

Tooth Brush Social Distance

After the outbreak of COVID -19, and during the times of severe crisis. It is always better to be safe and not get into contact with any kind of contact infection. Nobody shows any symptoms of COVID-19 during the initial phase.

Important points:

  • Maintain a social distance of your toothbrush if you are living in a big family, hostels or dormitories.
  • Practice good oral hygiene methods though you may be in the best of health.
  • Be extra careful with elders in the family who may be sick during these difficult times.
  • It is very important to wash your hands before you brush your teeth.
  • Store your toothbrush in an area outside the bathroom and make sure it is totally dry before you brush your teeth.

Which toothbrush should I Choose to Buy?

A toothbrush is a daily tool used to remove food particles and keep your oral cavity infection-free. You should see the specifications written in the description before you choose a toothbrush. One should understand the purpose of a toothbrush. It is a tool used to remove food particles that are collected on tooth surfaces every time we eat. Thus, It is advised to buy a soft-bristled toothbrush. Some toothbrushes have a safety cover for the bristles. Please consult your dentist nearby before you choose to change your toothbrush. 

When Do I Know If My Toothbrush Needs to Go?

Your toothbrush has a short life span as it is a tool used at least twice a day. There are a few points to be taken into consideration when its time to discard your toothbrush?

  • Do not overuse a toothbrush. Please change the toothbrush the moment you see that the bristles are beginning to fray apart.
  • It is wise to change your toothbrush if you have just been recovered from a cold.
  • If you just had a dental procedure for gum infections.

A healthy practice is to always keep a spare toothbrush, which can be used when you discard your old toothbrush.

Don’t Ever Share Your Toothbrush

It’s never a good idea to share your toothbrush with anyone, even if they are a family member or your spouse. The easiest way to spread infection is by sharing a toothbrush. Get toothbrushes of different colors so that it would not be interchanged by accident.

How Should I Clean My Toothbrush

It’s almost impossible to get rid of all the bacteria on your toothbrush, so sanitizing it isn’t only unrealistic, it also hasn’t been shown to have much of an effect on your oral health. Giving your toothbrush a thorough rinse after brushing is typically all that’s needed.
