One of the commandments of good dental health is obvious—Brush your teeth after every meal. This can help keep your mouth healthy throughout a long life.
Another rule should be just as carefully observed: Do NOT use someone else’s toothbrush. Sharing toothbrushes can shorten your life.
But what about emergencies, when you have no other option than to borrow someone’s toothbrush—just once?
Nope. This rule is most important.
Far better to risk tooth decay by not brushing than to risk Hepatitis C, Herpes or other contagious diseases by sharing—even with those you love.
Be safe, not sorry.
