The recommended time period for changing a toothbrush head is every 3 months.
This is a general consensus among the dentistry profession. You will find that the brush heads will normally last 3 months and whilst the intensity of the bristle colour may have changed the bristle formation should still be virtually the same as it was when new at the end of the 3 month period.
Using a brush head for longer can actually cause harm to the teeth because bristles can become damaged and less effective at how they sweep across the tooth surfaces, in between teeth and along the gum line.
Therefore it is always important to monitor your brush head and consider whether it is necessary to change your brush head sooner rather than later.
