  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before and after you brush your teeth.
  • Sharing is nice, but don’t share your toothbrush, floss or even the floss container.
  • Rinse your toothbrush after brushing and let it dry upright. Don’t let it touch other toothbrushes.
  • Toothbrushes might benefit from regular cleaning. To do this, let your toothbrush soak in antibacterial mouthwash for 15 minutes. Then air dry.
