How Clean Is Your Toothbrush? IntelliDent Toothbrush Shield

March 25, 2014 • Beauty, Fashion Blog


Do you ever wonder what happens to your toothbrush while it sits in your toothbrush holder overnight? I never gave it a second thought. Yet studies show an exposed toothbrush is subject to multiple surface and airborne microbes. The simple act of flushing a toilet can contaminate a six-foot radius which is bad news for your toothbrush. Ew! Toothbrushes are most at risk for contamination when stored in a shared cup holder, enclosed in a dark space that can breed germs (such as a medicine cabinet) or within close proximity of a toilet.

The good news is that the revolutionary IntelliDent Toothbrush Shield is proven to be 99% effective against airborne and surface bacteria, significantly reducing the risk of pathogen-related illness and improve the quality of overall health. Each breathable, quick-drying IntelliDent shield is made of non-woven material that acts like a band-aid or surgical mask and creates a barrier to protect against airborne bacteria, and wicks moisture away from your toothbrush to accelerate the drying process (note: it does not kill germs). They replace plastic holders that trap and breed bacteria and are effective up to 7 days. IntelliDent Toothbrush Shields are ideal for travel, home, work and anywhere else you are likely to bring your toothbrush.
