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.

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.
