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.
Ultraviolet 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.
