How can I use my electric toothbrush safely?

Check the cord of your electric toothbrush regularly for any signs of damage

Answered by Dave, Electrical Safety Expert

Check the cord of your electric toothbrush regularly for any signs of damage. If you spot any damage, replace the toothbrush.

If the electric toothbrush is dropped, replace the brush head even if there are no signs of damage.

Don’t let a child under the age of 3 use an electric toothbrush. Once they’re old enough, make sure they use a child-friendly brush with softer bristles and an easy to grip handle.

Don’t submerge the charging station and cord in water.
