How often do you… change your toothbrush?

I’m obsessed with toothbrush germs right now– I rinse mine and my son’s brushes with hot water daily and change them often (like every couple of months).

I asked my dentist if I’m being psycho and he said rule of thumb is generally 3 months for regular tooth brushes (4 months for Sonic care or other similar brushes) but if you have any kind of gum disease, it’s 4 weeks (bacteria from gum disease will get on the brush).

Confession time: What about you? How often do you change your toothbrush?
