How often should I change my toothbrush head?
If your brush head has lost effectiveness, it may leave plaque behind and can even hurt your gums. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends you replace your toothbrush head approximately every three to four months (around 90 days) to prevent bacteria from building up on the bristles.
Are quips worth it?
Compared with the rechargeable electric toothbrushes Wirecutter recommends, the battery-powered Quip produces much weaker vibrations. For this and other reasons, we don’t recommend the Quip (that sleek, shiny brush, third from the right, above) as an everyday electric toothbrush for most adults.
How do you take apart a spinbrush toothbrush?
Remove the end cap from the bottom of the toothbrush by prying it off with a spudger. Remove the top cap by using a spudger to pry the plastic ring off of the toothbrush frame. Push on the rotating head in order to pop the assembly out of the black plastic casing.
How do I change the top of my electric toothbrush?
To remove, snap or pull off the brush head from the handle. To apply a new brush head, slide it in at the same angle as the removal. Your electric toothbrush should also include directions in the packaging. Keep the instructions in the bathroom or snap a picture to easily check on your phone.
Why does my toothbrush fray so quickly?
If your toothbrush bristles are frayed and the fibres are bent after just a few days or weeks, you could be doing something wrong. A toothbrush that wears out too quickly is often the result of applying too much pressure, which is the consequence of using a wrong cleaning technique.
How often are you supposed to brush your teeth?

What is the lifespan of an electric toothbrush?
