  • Whenever I feel like it. It usually isn't until it has died. So maybe once a year.

  • Supposed to be every 3-4 months, but I do mine every 8 months, unless I was really sick (like recently I had Strep Throat) then I get new ones.

  • It's usually every 3 months I'm told. I changed it about that, if it's any longer it's at 6 months when I got to the dentist and he gives me a new one. If I was sick I will change my tooth brush

  • I was always told you can use it till the bristles get freyed

  • I'm a Dental Assistant and the ADA recommends changing your toothbrush every 3-4 months unless the bristles are frayed (and It should be replaced ASAP).
