#4. Not Changing Your Toothbrush

As a general rule, you should replace your toothbrush or toothbrush head every three months. If you don’t change your toothbrush, you actually have a higher chance of tooth discoloration. When a toothbrush gets too old, the bristles start to wear down so much that they are no longer able to properly remove plaque and food particles from your teeth as they should.

#5. Forgetting to Brush Your Tongue

When most people think of oral care, they think of brushing their teeth, but it is also important to clean your tongue. Bacteria and food particles can accumulate on your tongue and, eventually, they can get transferred to your teeth, leading to discoloration. It’s very important to brush your tongue every time you brush your teeth.
