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.
