How often change your electric toothbrush head?
It may seem like a small thing, but how often you change the head on your electric toothbrush can have a big impact on the health of your teeth and gums.
In this post, we'll look at why it's important to change the head of your electric toothbrush regularly, and give you some helpful tips on how often you should do it.
How long does an electric toothbrush brush head last?
It is important to replace your toothbrush head every 3 months, or sooner if the bristles start to fray. Electric toothbrush heads typically last 3-4 months.
On average, it is recommended to replace the brush head every three to four months or when the bristles become frayed. However, some brands offer brush heads with indicators that change color when it's time to replace them.
It is true that you can maintain good oral hygiene with KIWIBIRD black electric toothbrush, but it is also important to change the brush head regularly.
What happens if you don't replace toothbrush head?
If you don't replace your toothbrush head, the bristles will become frayed and worn down, which won't be as effective at cleaning your teeth.
The buildup of bacteria on the bristles can lead to gum disease and other oral health problems.
Doctors recommend replacing the head of both manual and electric toothbrushes every 2-3 months to maintain better oral and dental health.
Worried about the waste of resources and pollution caused by the frequent replacement of toothbrush heads?
The KIWIBIRD green electric toothbrush is more environmentally friendly than a manual toothbrush, even if the brush head is replaced every 2 months.
How do I know when my electric toothbrush head needs changing?
The signs that your toothbrush head is due for replacement are as follows:
- Bristles worn or frayed
- Bristles pointing in different directions or appear uneven
- Damaged brush head
- Colour indicator changes or fades
If your toothbrush head needs replacing frequently, you may need to change the way you brush - brushing too hard can wear out your toothbrush faster than usual and damage the enamel on your teeth.
