Here's some basic dental tips everyone should know.
Change your toothbrush. Toothbrushes can house bacteria that can continue to make you sick. At the onset of an upper respiratory infection, sinus infection or cold, get a new toothbrush. When you’re feeling better, get another one. Change your toothbrush at least once a month when you are healthy.
When brushing, don’t overload your brush with toothpaste. Squeeze a pea-size amount on the top of the bristles. Correct brushing techniques will cause the paste to foam and cover all of your teeth. Using less toothpaste also can save you money.
