Oral Hygiene – Protector® Antibacterial Toothbrushes

Tooth bushing is vital for Oral Hygiene and good dental practices are imperative to keep teeth healthy and in fettle state. However, toothbrushes can get contaminated by Viruses, Bacteria and Microbes, not only form oral cavity of the user, but also by the environment in which toothbrushes are kept such as enclosed in plastic cover, placed in a shared brush holder. Moist environment of the washroom is an ideal place for bacteria to grow and flushing of toilet while uncovered add more and more bacteria & microbes in the washroom environment. Various studies have confirmed the most prevalent species in washroom environment such as E coli, Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, Lactobacilli, Pseudomonas, Klebsiella and Candida etc. These microbes settle on different surfaces and your toothbrush can be one of it. Once contaminated toothbrush is used, it transfers viruses, bacteria and microbes to the hand & mouth of the user and may results in Dental Plaque, Caries, Gingivitis and Periodontitis diseases. Such contaminated toothbrushes pose health risks to the user and also cause reoccurrence of infection due to oral-fecal contamination, leading to serious illnesses including diarrhea, typhoid, cholera, dehydration, gastroenteritis and hepatitis etc.
