Toothbrush subscription service delivers smiles

 

     The American Dental Association (or ADA) recommends changing your toothbrush at least once every 3 months for maximum hygiene. Most people replace their toothbrush only every 9 months on average. The problem with waiting this long is that worn bristles are less effective at removing plaque from your teeth and they can actually harm your gums. Another issue is that, over time, germs that are collected from your mouth can accumulate onto the bristles of your toothbrush. Some people “clean” their toothbrushes in the dishwasher or microwave but the ADA says that these methods can potentially damage your toothbrush and cause the effectiveness to decrease.

      This is where Getnewtoothbrush comes in. You sign up for their subscription, choosing the toothbrushes that you would like delivered and the frequency of delivery (every month, every other month, or every 3 months) and they will automatically send you and your family new toothbrushes when needed. You can cancel at anytime, no questions asked, but between the low cost and the convenience, I’m not sure why you would want to.

     Their toothbrushes are only $2.50 each and if you have a family of 3 or more than shipping is free. If you order just 1 or 2 at a time then shipping is still only $2. Considering that, on average, a toothbrush in a value pack at the supermarket costs $2.75 + tax(or more) you are getting a great deal and you don’t have to worry about remembering when you last replaced your brush.

     I’ve got to say, when my family’s toothbrushes arrived in the mail I was excited. I know it seems silly to get excited over such a simple, everyday object, but my 7-year-old has always gotten excited about toothbrushes and she’s rubbing off on me. As soon as I took them out of the box, both of my daughters wanted to use theirs right away. As you can see, my 1-year-old takes after her big sister when it comes to her love for dental hygiene.

The company offers 4 different styles of toothbrushes in a variety of colors. They have 3 adult styles, a youth style, and 1 for toddlers. Since we have a family of 4, we ended up with 1 of each style of brush. Each of them have soft bristles which is what the ADA recommends. The handles have a comfortable grip, 1 of the adult styles includes a tongue cleaner, and the handles are all narrow enough to fit into the holes in our toothbrush holder (even the baby’s thicker handle is still small enough to fit)

 

     Bottom line: I definitely recommend signing up at http://www.getnewtoothbrush.com
Not only will it save you time and money, but it’s one less thing to have to remember.

    Totally going to have to bookmark this.
    We have 3 kids so it seems like we are always buying new toothbrushes.
    Do they have spin top heads as well?

    This is such a good idea. Honestly, I can’t remember the last time anyone in my family changed their toothbrush!

    There is a sub box for everything! Dental care is very important, we have taught the kids that since they were little.

      I know, right? I don’t fall into the sub box trap too much but I love this one

    Oh wow, I had no idea the recommendation is every 3 months. I thought it was 6 for some reason. We normally get new ones on Halloween and Easter actually. I will have to look into that service so I don’t forget this!

    This is a great idea. My other half is quite keen, and remembers to buy us all new toothbrushes every three months. I’d definitely use something like this if I lived alone though as I’m quite forgetful and would have no idea how long we’d had our toothbrushes for!

    This looks like a great idea! Gonna have to check it out to see what kinds of toothbrushes they send. I’m super picky about which ones I will use! I love the concept of not having to worry about forgetting when I need to change out my toothbrush!
