Oral Bacteria are Invasive Species in the Gut
- Few natural enemies
- Invasive – Destroy natural gut flora habitat setting up their preferred environment.
- Competition – Out competes natural gut flora
- Tend to crowd out / replace native species
- Can severely damage ecosystem health
Bacteria have been so invasive that they actually invade your own gum tissue, that is, they actually get inside of the cells themselves. This diseased tissue pours out inflammatory toxins throughout the body and it is impossible for the oxygen or any antibiotics to reach into bacterial biofilms.
Biofilms are highly evolved intricate communities populated by interdependent microbial species. Complex biofilm communities grow and thrive in hard deposits as well as on tooth structures devoid of clinically detectible calculus. Biofilm experts tell us that it is difficult to remove these tenacious bacterial communities mechanically, and biofilms resist penetration by antimicrobial agents.
An ultrasonic toothbrush cleanses the teeth and gums using vibration. This vibration helps destroy bacteria and plaque down to a depth of around 5mm which also helps to ward off the buildup of biofilm. The vibrations are gentle and therefore do not cause the gums to bleed when brushing.
Ultrasonic brushes can produce sound waves, vibrating water molecules in your mouth for a more effective clean. To gauge your brush’s power, check how many brush strokes a minute the toothbrush offers compared with the most powerful one on the market. An ultrasonic toothbrush should produce 30,000 to 40,000 brush strokes a minute, according to site Electric Toothbrush Reviews. In comparison, normal electric toothbrushes only offer 3,000 to 7,500 brushstrokes a minute.
Other features to look out for include a built-in two minute timer to tell you when your session is up, a UV sanitizer that kills any bacteria which may grow on your brush head when it is not in use, and a pressure sensor to prevent you from brushing too hard. In addition, when choosing a sonic toothbrush you should ask yourself who it’s for. For children, a smaller version is preferable, and some brushes have been designed especially for kids.
Ultraviolet Toothbrush Sanitizer
Bacteria are introduced into your toothbrush in many ways. Some come from your own mouth, others are airborne, and still more sail to your brush on water droplets launched form the toilet when you flush. However they get there, you can bet that once they’ve found your toothbrush, the germs are there to stay.
If left unchecked these bacteria will multiply, filling your brush with colony after colony of potentially disease causing germs. By the time you are ready to toss out your brush you could be putting thousands, if not millions, of bacteria in your mouth every time you brush.
Violight sanitizers use the same ultraviolet technology found in hospitals and high-end water purification systems to hit the germs where they live—in your toothbrush. The UV rays penetrate areas that you simply can’t reach when running your brush under the tap, then safely and effectively obliterate up to 99.9% of disease-causing germs.
