Toothbrush Adaptations

Suffering from arthritis or have noticed a loss in your grip?

Taking care of your teeth is made easier when you add extra mass and sometimes extra length to the handle of your toothbrush.

This can be done with many house hold items such as:

  • Toothbrush attached to hand by a rubber band - Attach the brush to the hand with a wide rubber band. Make sure the band isn't to tight.

  • Tennis ball on the handle of the toothbrush - Cut a small slit into a tennis ball and slide it onto the handle of the toothbrush.

  • Toothbrush with a bicycle grip as a handle - Slide a bicycle grip onto the handle.

Regardless of your choice remember to change your toothbrush every three to four months!
