What it is?
UV Toothbrush Holder/Sanitizer functions to eliminate unwanted and harmful bacteria, fungi and viruses that reside on your regular and electric powered toothbrush.
How it works?
Just press the button and you're sanitizing. Using the UV-C sterilizing lamp, up to 99.9% of these germs are eradicated from your toothbrush in approximately 7 minutes. This UV-C lamp also known as germicidal UV emits sufficient doses to eliminate dangerous micro-organisms. Holds four toothbrushes at a time. Powered by two AA batteries (not included) which will last approximately 3 months if used twice per day.
The Journal of American Dental Association: "Studies have shown that contaminated toothbrushes not only harbor, but also transmit both viruses and bacteria that cause systemic, localized and oral inflammatory diseases"
The Centers for Disease Control: "Even after being rinsed visibly clean, toothbrushes can remain contaminated with potentially pathogenic organisms."
Oral Health in America: A Report of the Surgeon General: "Recently research finds have pointed to possible associations between chronic oral infections and diabetes, heart and lung disease, stroke and low-birth weight, premature births."
