Children's Oral Health Articles and Advice

Don't give germs and bacteria a place to hide!

Germs and bacteria can be a real danger to your smile. Dentists recommend that you change your toothbrush every three months. Studies show that after three months of normal wear and tear toothbrushes are much less effective at removing plaque from teeth and gums.

Toothbrush Tips

Colgate offers a complete line of toothbrushes, each designed to meet your specific oral care needs. As unique as each brush is, you can count on all of them to help remove dangerous plaque from teeth and gums. Improve the effectiveness of your brush and lower the chance of carrying harmful germs and bacteria by following the care tips outlined below.

How can I take care of my toothbrush?

Toothbrushes can harbour germs and bacteria. To keep your toothbrush and yourself healthy:

  • You should let your toothbrush dry in the open air after brushing.
  • After using your toothbrush, shake it vigorously under tap water and store it in an upright position so that it can air out.
  • To prevent bacteria from being passed between brushes, try to keep your toothbrush from touching others when it is stored.

How often should I change my toothbrush?

You should replace your toothbrush when it the bristles begin to show wear, or every three months, whichever comes first. A worn toothbrush can damage gum tissue. Replace your toothbrush every three months or when it becomes worn.

How often should I brush my teeth?

Brush at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.


A child’s smile is good for everyone, which is why we are doing our best to give every child a smile they will want to show off.
