October is Dental Hygiene Month

Dekamore Dental | DeKalb and Sycamore CommunitiesCelebrate Dental Hygiene Month by giving everyone in your family a new toothbrush!

Are you wondering when you should change your toothbrush?

Here are some indicators that it is time for a new toothbrush.
1. The Dekamore Dental staff and the American Dental Association suggest that you change your toothbrush or your electric toothbrush head every 3 – 4 months.
2. Change your toothbrush after you have had a bad cold or the flu.
3. Change your toothbrush if your toothbrush bristles become frayed and/or worn. When bristles become frayed and worn they decrease their effectiveness.
