Should I invest in a new toothbrush?
I have been using the same, trusty toothbrush for eighteen years now. True, many of the bristles have perished, but as a toothbrush it still works. However, this morning I suffered a tragic incident when the handle snapped. What should I do? Glue it together, or invest in a new toothbrush? The old one doesn't have any sentimental value or anything, I just don't want to be making wild purchases.

Please buy a new one! you are supposed to replace them like every 3-6 months or so. I think that if you have to ask the question, you probably already know the answer. Put the toothbrush to rest now. Its time to let go. You'll be okay.

if it's been so good to you, why waste the money?
glue definitely.
it's good to be frugal.


KARLA91
YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY BUY A NEW TOOTH BRUSH ITS BETTER FOR YOUR TEETH.


napajniton
glue is expensive.
just stick the toothbrush in a corner so the 2 pieces will stay together, and stand in front of it, moving your head from side to side. and up and down.

like this!

I love your question and think you should go for it and buy another hoping it will last as long.
I just think your a tight git and need to get the ultimate in mouth hygiene before you finally walk outside and need to pay 10p for the bog and this will scare the life out of you then the tooth brush will out live you.
Ohh bye the way how ever did you manage to part with the cash to pay for our computer or is this the cheap mates.

OK,IF THIS TOOTHBRUSH IS 18 YEARS OLD AND YOU HAVE HAD IT SINCE , SAY SINCE YOU WERE 6 YEARS OLD, THAT MIGHT MAKE YOU 6 + 18 = 24 YEARS OLD, HYPOTHETICALLY.
I WOULD HAVE A HARD TIME BELIEVING THAT ANY ADULT WOULD BE SERIOUS ABOUT POSTING SOMETHING LIKE THIS. ANYWAY DON'T BE SO PARSIMONIOUS (aka frugal) AND BUY A NEW BRUSH.

If you use your insurance to go for a yearly check up you should get a free toothbrush from the dentist!


Rachel Bitchface
You should get a new toothbrush every month or so. You will spend more money in dental bills if you use the same toothbrush for 18 years. Yuck.


black_cat_enigma
You liar. After 18 years the toothbrush would be unusable.

They don't even cost that much, and you are supposed to replace them every 3 months for hygiene reasons.

Your breath and teeth can't be up to much. Dentists recommed replacing toothbrushes every three months. I suggest its high time you invested in a new one and they are not expensive. I wont be kissing you in a hurry.

Your toothbrush is just eighteen years now?
O man, it will surely last another eighteen years.
So I would opt for a little glue.
That's much less expensive than a whole new toothbrush.
I can't imagine you even thought about it.
Or...you know what? I could send you mine
(21 years old, but looking as good as new),
'cause I'm actually looking for another color,
one that will match with my new bathroom.

Stick with what you have.

Try duck tape.


fuzz
glue will not suffice. it may impair tooth brushing due to flexing of the toothbrush handle during brushing.
Toothbrush manufacturers recommend that it is repaired with a strong waterproof tape. Most good chemists stock the tape.

all the best

I hope you will get a new toothbrush. While the one you have may look good, it's probably not working well.
Hopefully, you visit the dentist each year. Usually they give you a free toothbrush every visit.
Me, I get a new toothbrush every 3 months or so.
Maybe you should be hiding your teeth instead of your apples if you've been using the same toothbrush for 18 years. You nut.

( Adults and children should change their toothbrush every 3 months because they become worn out and are not as effective as they once were. Exceptions to this would be if you were using an electric toothbrush, and the manufacturer states otherwise. Some electric rechargable toothbrushes have very good brush heads that only need to be changed every 6 months. If you have gum disease, you should change your toothbrush every 4 - 6 weeks because bacteria can harbor in the bristles. You should always rinse your toothbrush out with hot water after every use and change it after you have been sick.)

Are you sure you need to invest in a new one? After 18 years of using a worn out one,I would imagine that you don't have any teeth left anyway!

dentists reccomend you change your toothbrush every 6 months, I personally change mine every 2 months, think about it, if you use a toothbrush to remove all the skank off your teeth, where does it go? onto the toothbrush! so your just moving all that crap around your mouth, not really cleaning. Just my opinion!

They sell refurbishment kits for about $35. They generally consist of a telescoping splint for the handle, recycled bristles cut to match the optimal brushing length (usually 5/16 of an inch, give or take a quarter inch), and an asbestos powder that can be mixed with Portland cement and ammonia to create the optimal brushing gel/solid.

I suggest getting a kit every two months.

Glue it back together! See if you can hit 20 years with it!

You are supposed to replace your toothbrush every 3 months!
