Morden Oral Care solutions including Water Flossers and Sonic Electric Toothbrushes help you attain your absolute oral hygiene. However, did you know that these efforts in upgrading your oral health will remain ineffective if you don't take routine care of your dental care tools?

There are millions of germs and bacterias that get collected in your toothbrush or water flosser every time you cleanse your mouth. It becomes more essential than ever to take all the steps in keeping your mouth germ-free and allowing a thorough upgrade of your oral health.

In this blog, we'll take you through the various ways and steps of how you can not only keep your toothbrush & water flosser clean but also prolong its life cycle with proper maintenance and care.

1] Replace your brush heads- Replacing your electric toothbrush heads allows in maintaining your oral health by keeping your toothbrush new as ever. This allows for more effectiveness in removing plaque and tartar build-up, improving the overall health of your mouth. For utmost hygiene, it is recommended by dentists to replace your toothbrush head every 3-4 months of usage.

2] Don't brush too hard- It is known that brushing too hard may cause more harm to your teeth than actually improving oral health. Brushing too vigorously may damage the enamel of your teeth, making them more prone to sensitivity, cavities, and other oral problems. Not only this but brushing too hard can also damage your toothbrush, causing the bristles to fall out of place & wear out. This will affect your overall dental hygiene, as the toothbrush will be less effective in providing a thorough clean-up of the mouth.

3] Rinse it thoroughly & Store Properly- After every cleanse, it is important to thoroughly clean and rinse your toothbrush. After brushing, rinse it with warm water and run your finger over the bristles to ensure that there are no stuck food particles resting on your toothbrush.

Along with this, it is necessary to make sure you store your toothbrush and water flosser effectively. Do not store multiple dental care tools very close to each other. It is easy for germs to spread across the brushes and flossers if kept very close to each other. Keep some distance between every tool for proper storage.

4] Clean the Water Reservoir- It is essential to perform a routine cleanup of your water flosser's tank to make sure your oral care is of utmost health. Before cleaning your water flosser, make sure that you disconnect it from the power supply. Clean the reservoir and its valve with warm water and dry it completely for fresh and hygienic oral care.

5] Clean the handle and flosser tip- It is necessary to clean your flosser handle and tips. Your handle is one thing that your hand comes into direct contact with quite often. Make sure it is germ-free. Along with this, make sure you regularly clean your flosser tip for your ultimate oral health.
