ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- Happy National Toothbrush Day! Yep, June 26 is the perfect opportunity for you to pick up a new toothbrush and keep your mouth healthy.

According to the American Dental Association, you should be replacing your toothbrush every three to four months.  After that long of use, the bristles will have built-up bacteria on them. These bacteria can cause bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease.
