Why use the Toothbrush Shield?
Studies have shown that an exposed toothbrush or plastic toothbrush cover is subject to multiple surface and airborne bacteria.
What's wrong with a plastic cover?
The Toothbrush Shield replaces plastic caps and covers. Plastic caps and covers retain moisture and constrict air flow making them a perfect breeding ground for bacteria. The Center for Disease Control discourages the use of plastic covers.
How clean is your home bathroom?
Your toothbrush is at risk for contamination if stored in a shared cup with other toothbrushes, enclosed in a dark space such as a medicine cabinet, or in close proximity to a toilet. Did you know? A flushing toilet releases a fine mist of airbourne droplets that settle on surfaces within a six foot radius of the toilet; this mist can contain e-coli and many other harmful bacteria.
How do you keep your toothbrush clean and safe when away from home?
If you are one of the millions of people who take a toothbrush to work, keeping it clean between uses is crucial to your dental hygiene as using the brush itself. Using the IntelliDent Toothbrush Shield will protect your toothbrush against harmful bacteria at work and when traveling.
Does the Toothbrush Shield kill germs?
The Toothbrush Shield is specifically designed to block bacterial and viral contact through superior barrier technology, providing efficient air flow, and rapid absorption to prevent bacterial growth. The Toothbrush Shield does not kill germs.
