Most soft toothbrushes do not last more than 3 months. If the bristles on your toothbrush become frayed or bent, its time to get a new toothbrush. Straight and resilient bristles will remove plaque much more effectively. Change your toothbrush at regular intervals and make the time you brush more efficient.
