To Prevent Illness, Microwave Your Toothbrush

Most people change their toothbrush every 6 months, but experts say people should change them every 3 to 4 months. When bristles get worn and lose their rigidity, they don't remove plaque as well. In addition, to avoid germs and bacteria from attaching to your brush, Reader's Digest recommends zapping toothbrushes through the microwave on high for 10 seconds, once or twice a week immediately before brushing.

I have heard this before. Sounds like something I will try.
If you don’t have a healthy mouth you don’t have a healthy body. The dentist can always tell when a person is sick. He can even tell a mother she is preggos before she even knows it.
So people take good care of your teeth and your mouth!
