The purpose of having a bacteria free toothbrush is to reduce the number of germs entering the oral cavity thereby reducing the number of the infections and the illnesses that they cause.

Let the toothbrush dry and the bacteria will die

The Hygienic Tooth Brushing System by RDI requires the employment of our Hygienic Toothbrush Holder, the use of at least four toothbrushes per person and the application of our Hygienic Tooth Brushing Method. The Hygienic Tooth Brushing Method is a simple and cost free method for the prevention of bacterial growth and accumulation in toothbrushes.


It is important to use a soft brush with round-ended bristles, brushing thoroughly at least once a day, but preferably after each meal or snack.  A gentle “jiggle” motion is used, going over just a couple of teeth at a time, moving gently to the next set of teeth.  Spending two to three minutes brushing is best.

Medical Consequences

You can also mount it on your bathroom mirror without having to drill any holes by using the accompanying specially designed screw less mirror mounting piece.

Hygienically speaking, the highly polished water repellent surfaces of the toothbrush holder were designed to prevent water retention to therefore prevent bacterial growth and accumulation. Each front slot has a corresponding receiving slot in the back with a large enough incline angle to prevent the toothbrushes from falling down to the floor.

The   consequence of using an infected   bacteria laden toothbrush is an increase in the number and frequency of oral, dental, pharyngeal, bronchial, gastro  intestinal  and even systemic  infections. Some of these infections could be acute or chronic. Some infections like the flu or the pneumonia's could be or become life threatening.

Even heart attacks may be precipitated by the presence of these infections.  Treating   these   illnesses   and infections could be medically quite challenging if not impossible if the individual continues to use the same wet, bacteria laden and infected toothbrush over and over. Recurrent strep throat is just one example of repeated infections.


To help prevent your teeth from decaying, fluoride has been found to help.  It has been added to water in some areas where it does not occur naturally.  It is also in many types of toothpaste and rinses.  Your dentist can prescribe stronger doses, as needed.  Many have the conception that fluoride is only for children.  However, adults do get cavities.  In fact, as we age, there is another phase of cavity prone years for older adults.  They are very susceptible to decay along the gum line where recession has occurred and the roots of the teeth are exposed.  Also, if you drink mostly bottled water, you may not be getting the benefit of fluoridated water.

For example, in a two days cycle if the first toothbrush is used on Monday morning, the second toothbrush will be use on Monday night, the third toothbrush will be use on Tuesday morning   and the fourth toothbrush will be use on Tuesday night. Then on Wednesday morning the cycle begins  again  with  the  toothbrush  that  was  used  the previous Monday morning which is now dry ( free of bacteria ) and ready to be reuse again. A similar process will apply when six toothbrushes are use, except than an extra day is added to the cycle.

Cycle marker

In order to know which was the most recently used toothbrush and which is the next toothbrush to be use, a cycle marker is establish to identify which toothbrush is dry and ready to be reuse.

Financial consequences

Finally the Hygienic Toothbrush Holder can be easily removed from the wall just by sliding it upwards. For hygienic reasons we recommended using toothbrushes with highly polish surfaces to prevent water retention and bacterial growth and accumulation on the  toothbrush handles. This elegant hygienic toothbrush holder comes with two screws, two plastic anchors, the especially designed screw less mirror mounting piece and four medium premium quality toothbrushes. Hygienically speaking; there is nothing like it! Not even close!

The more infections you get the more money you spend in dental care, doctor visits and on medications. You also loose income from your missed days of work. It all adds up to the loss of a lot of money, capital and productivity during your life time not withstanding your well being.

Family use

Four persons; each having four toothbrushes; can have a separate row in our multiple toothbrush holder simultaneously while leaving an empty row in between them to prevent cross contamination.  They can also color code the toothbrushes. For example, each person can have a row of yellow, red, blue or violet toothbrushes. In that way each person will know which row of toothbrushes belongs to him or her?



This elegant hygienic toothbrush holder comes with two screws, two plastic anchors, the especially design-mounting piece and four premium quality toothbrushes. We recommended using toothbrushes with highly polish handle surfaces like those included to prevent water retention and bacterial growth on the handles.

The oral and upper airway cavities are the most common ports of entry for many infections caused by bacteria, fungi and viruses and the bacteria growing in your toothbrush are to be blame for most of those infections. Research has shown that if you let your toothbrush dry  for two to three days, the bacteria will die.

“Are you flossing all of your teeth, or just the ones you want to keep?”  Cleaning between teeth should be done once a day, preferably after your last meal or before bedtime.  If you find that you aren’t accomplishing this task, find a time during the day that is more convenient, and stick to that time schedule.  It isn’t the “ideal” but it is best to get in there every 24 hours than not at all.  Use whatever type of floss is easiest to get between the contacts.  Some may need waxed, unwaxed, ultra fine, etc.

At the start of the cycle all the toothbrushes will have their bristles facing in the same direction, such as, facing upwards or facing downwards.  The toothbrushes will be placed in a horizontal row (most recommended) or in a vertical row.  The toothbrushes will always   be   use   from right to left when using a horizontal row and from top to bottom if using a vertical row. Once the first toothbrush is used it will be placed back into its receptacle with its bristles facing in the opposite direction of the remaining toothbrushes, noting to the user to select the next toothbrush whose bristles are facing in the appropriate direction, the next time that he or she brushes their teeth.

The Traditional Toothbrush Holder As A Source Of Infections

The traditional toothbrush holder by their very own design causes the toothbrush to sit in a wet and infected surface, further fostering the growth and accumulation of germs and bacteria on the toothbrush.

Also the wet glass where the toothbrush is sometimes kept, the wet sink surface or other infected wet surfaces where the toothbrush sometimes lay,   prevent it from drying up, becoming an additional factor in the growth and accumulation of germs and bacteria on that toothbrush.

Consequently, every time an individual brushes his or her teeth using a wet toothbrush, he or she is using an infected toothbrush. As a result they are introducing more bacteria, fungi, and or viruses into their oral cavity causing acute infections and or perpetuating chronic ones.


Seeing your dentist and dental hygienist is not just important for healthy teeth, but also for overall health.  Periodontal (gum) disease has recently been linked to heart disease.  Your dental team will suggest the best frequency to maintain good oral health.  Many will need to be seen more often than the standard “6 month check-up”.  With disease producing bacteria forming every 90 to 120 days, it is not uncommon to see your hygienist every 3 months so that plaque and tartar can be removed in hard to reach areas.

If using a horizontal row, once you have used the last toothbrush on the left you go back to the first toothbrush on the right and start the cycle again. If using the vertical row, once you have used the last toothbrush at the bottom you go back to the first toothbrush on the top and start the cycle again. This consistent orientation ensures that the user will have a clean, dry, and bacteria free toothbrush every time he or she goes back to brushing his or her teeth.

Speeding up the drying process

The front grid slots special design keeps the toothbrushes in the center of their slot to prevent them from sliding sideways. These prevent the toothbrushes from touching each other, therefore avoiding cross contamination. In the back, the posterior slots are tapper to keep the toothbrushes in the center of their slot as well.

Its versatility allows the user to use one of the vertical compartments for a tooth paste or an electrical toothbrush and the other one for the toothbrushes. Another component of this versatile design is its bottom shelf which can be used to store a variety of small items such as your dental floss, your lip stick, your liner; etc.

First you must rinse the toothbrush with clean hot water to remove the food particles and other loose matter trapped within the bristles of the toothbrush and then with You should never touch, try to clean or remove the excess water from the toothbrush bristles by using your fingers.
