  • They say every 3 months, I probably go 2-4 months.

  • Every time I go to the dentist... or if I get a cold, I get a new toothbrush after my cold is gone.

  • every couple of months, unless, as the pp mentioned, I've been sick...then I replace it because I *hate* getting sick right after I just was! lol

  • A friend of mine soaks hers in a glass of peroxide when she is sick.

  • I use two different ones, one in the morning and one at night so they have a chance to dry before I use it again, but then I just switch it when it looks like it needs to. When the bristles are all crazy like.

  • once a month (i buy tooth brushes in bulk)

  • depends on how much I paid for it. sometimes I trade out the head but keep the handle that has batteries. If it's just a regular toothbrush (no batteries) I throw them away about every 3 months. I do replace them immediately if I get sick.

  • We have different heads because we all have electric toothbrushes expect for my youngest 4 who still have baby brushes or no teeth at all lol and we change then about every month.
