Can Your Toothbrush Make You Ill?

Can Your Toothbrush Make You Ill?

Did you know that your tooth brush could be home of over a million bacteria including the flu virus, E coli, staph and yeast fungus? But, can your tooth brush really make you fall ill? Luckily, our immune system ensures that toothbrushes do not make us ill. However, in rare cases, the bacteria on a toothbrush can get past our defenses.

The problem lies in how a toothbrush is stored. The bathroom is humid and moist making it the best place for bacteria to multiply. Storing a toothbrush near the toilet further adds to the problem. Here are a few tips to make your toothbrush healthier.

  1. Wash your hands before and after brushing. Also rinse your toothbrush well before putting toothpaste on it. Using hot water is better than cold water.
  2. Change your toothbrush every three months or whenever the bristles are worn out; whichever comes first. In addition, also change your toothbrush after recovering from any illness. If you use an electric toothbrush, change the head every 3-4 months. Children’s brushes need to be changed more often than adult’s toothbrushes.
  3. Do not share a toothbrush and avoid storing toothbrushes together. If the bristles touch each other, germs could move from one toothbrush to the other.
  4. Toothbrush caps may not be as good an idea as they seem as it traps moisture inside and does not allow the brush to dry properly. Instead, keep your brush submerged in hydrogen peroxide or any alcohol based mouthwash.
  5. Do not store your toothbrush horizontally. Your toothbrush should always be stored vertically with the brush side on top.
  6. When travelling, if you use a toothbrush cap, allow the brush to dry completely before putting the cap on.
  7. Store your toothbrush away from the toilet and away from the sink such that it cannot get contaminated form water that splashes when you wash your hands or face.
  8. If possible, store your toothbrush in your medicine cabinet.
  9. Always put the cover down before flushing the toilet. This will reduce the number of air borne bacteria that can attach themselves to your toothbrush,
  10. Along with your toothbrush also clean out your toothbrush holder regularly.
  11. Do not try sterilizing your toothbrush in a microwave. Toothbrushes are not designed to withstand extreme temperatures and hence this could damage your toothbrush.
  12. Use a mouthwash after brushing to rinse out any bacteria that may be left behind form your teeth or your toothbrush. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dentist.

Using an appropriate tooth paste is very necessary for the health of our teeth. Tooth pastes which contain flouride help in keeping the teeth healthy by reducing the risk of tooth decay.

Oil pulling is no substitute for brushing. Oil pulling is swishing of essential oil in mouth for 5-10 minutes. Until the color of oil changes towards white, then spitting it out. Oils of sessame, peanuts, etc can be used.

It would be great if you post a good quality picture of the teeth in problem so as to draw a perfect conclusion and to decide the treatment. There are 2-4 types of treatment modalities available to correct the same like- Wiring (orthodontic)-expenses depends upon the type and method of wire used -approximately 20000-75000 best treatment according to me as its natural, noninvasive and permanent good results etc Composites- expenses varies according to the kit used, and also place to place Veneer-expenses varies according to the kit used, and also place to place crowns-expenses varies according to the material used, and labs also place to place.

I have a white colour coating on my tongue since last 2 months or so. what could be the reason?

BDS, Non-Resident J.R. in Dept. of Orthodontics, Certified oral implantologist, Advanced Aesthetics, Digital Smile Designer
Dentist, Jammu
White tongue is the result of an overgrowth and swelling of the fingerlike projections (papillae) on the surface of your tongue. The appearance of a white coating is caused by debris, bacteria and dead cells getting lodged between the enlarged and sometimes inflamed papillae. Causes of papillae hypertrophy or inflammation include, for example: poor oral hygiene dry mouth dehydration smoking or other oral tobacco use alcohol use mouth breathing low roughage diet? eating mostly soft or mashed foods mechanical irritation from sharp tooth edges or dental appliances fever examples of conditions associated with white patches or other discolorations of your tongue include: use of certain medications, such as prolonged use of antibiotics that may bring on an oral yeast infection oral thrush geographic tongue leukoplakia oral lichen planus mouth cancer tongue cancer syphilis hiv/aids.

Hello If you mean SWALLOWING you might be suffering from desqamative gingivitis. There will be peeling of epithelium and reddening of the surface indicated. You sould be using corticosterid cream and 3% H2O2 mouthwash for it. If you mean SWELLING it may be due to other reasons like improper oral hygiene or due to side effect of some medications if you are using any presently. So visit your dentist. Get set soon.

Mouth ulcers are usually due to vitamin deficiency or bad digestion. Other causes are tonsils, trauma from teeth, dry mouth, tonsillitis, stress, change in lifestyle, allergies to certain foods and medication, smoking and tobacco chewing, consumption of spicy n hot foods.

Avoid oilly n spicy food completely. start a course of antibiotics n visit a dentist.
