I get a free one at the dentist every 6 months.

Speaking of which, if dentists didn't give out toothbrushes, who knows how long people would go before replacing them?

There's only one thing I don't get -- why would my dog need his own toothbrush?

fwiw, most dentists i've talked to you say you should replace your toothbrush every 3 months (or when the bristles start to go soft), and that you should brush for 2 minutes every time (remember how long you'd brush when you were a kid? i did 30 seconds, tops).

obviously, it could all be a dental industry scam, but so could those cleanings every six months (which seems a little too frequent for me).

I change my toothbrush every two weeks. After 1 week the bristles look like they were run over with a truck. After two weeks it scratches my gums. Besides, think of all the germs growing on a toothbrush. Your re-introducing them into your mouth each time you brush. Each time you flush the toilet with the lid up fecal bacteria can land on your toothbrush. Ick.

In other toothbrush news, I just last night learned about the
Germ-terminator toothbrush sterilizer. Google revealed others, such as the
Purebrush.
