When to Change Your Toothbrush or Brush Head

How Often Should You Change Your Toothbrush or Electric Toothbrush Head?

Many dental professionals recommend changing your toothbrush about every three months, and the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that you replace your toothbrush approximately every three to four months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed.

That's because, no matter what type of toothbrush you use, its bristles can become frayed and worn and may lose their effectiveness. And clinical research shows that a new toothbrush can remove more plaque than one that's worn out, ensuring that your brush is working its hardest to help keep your teeth clean and healthy.

Brush with an Oral-B electric toothbrush to make changing your brush head even easier by subscribing to the Oral-B Refill Subscription. You’ll save on brush heads and get the dentist-inspired refill that’s right for you.

Looking for the most advanced cleaning power? The Oral-B iO replacement brush heads are exclusive to the Oral-B iO electric toothbrush handle; however, they feature the Oral-B unique round head with the latest in bristle technology—micro-vibrations for a professional feeling clean, every day.
