Change Toothbrush after Cold or Flu With Colgate

I knew that you should always change your toothbrush when you have any kind of sores in your motuh, canker sores, or cold sores. But I didn’t know about changing it after a cold or flu. But it does make perfect sense!

With flu season upon us, there are a variety of recommended steps that we can take to try to remain healthy such as washing your hands with soap for 20 seconds, exercising regularly and drinking plenty of fluids. If, by chance, you are unable to avoid getting the flu, there are “after the flu” steps that you can take to help keep you healthy.

One “after flu” thing you can do is to change your toothbrush for a fresh start. While brushing your teeth can help keep them healthy, it is also important to change your toothbrush regularly. Dentists recommend changing your toothbrush every three months or sooner, as a worn toothbrush is less effective at cleaning your teeth.

Consider the new Colgate 360° ActiFlex toothbrush, a new innovative brush designed to help clean your whole mouth. Its flexible bridge cleans in all directions – in and around teeth – to remove plaque for a healthier whole mouth clean.
