An Air-dried Toothbrush Is A Healthy Toothbrush Lolo

Today in our Missoula dental blog we will highlight some of the simple things you can do with your toothbrush to keep your mouth as clean and healthy as possible.

One of the most important habits Lolo residents can form is to always allow their toothbrush to completely air dry between uses. The best way to let the toothbrush air dry is by placing it in a toothbrush holder on the counter with the bristles pointing up. This method of storage is much better than sticking it away in a drawer since it will take longer to dry in there.

Also, when you travel away from the Frenchtown, Orchard Homes, or Wye area, make sure your toothbrush is dry before you seal it away in a travel container.

A good strategy for Missoula residents to make sure their toothbrush has ample time to dry is to buy two toothbrushes at your Lolo drugstore. Then alternate between the two so each has time to fully dry out between uses.

And Lolo dental patients should remember to replace their toothbrush (or toothbrushes) every 3 to 4 months, or sooner if they’ve had a cold!
