Keeping Your Family Safe with the BEST. BRUSH. EVER.

In a time when we are all taking extra care to wash our hands and avoid the spread of germs - don’t forget about your toothbrush! Toothbrushes can be breeding grounds for bacteria which are continuously re-introduced into your mouth, can be transferred between brushes, and can lower your immune system’s ability to fight viruses.

What are the advantages of embedded silver in a toothbrush?

When nano-silver is embedded into a toothbrush bristle it acts as an anti-microbial agent. The silver naturally kills bacteria that accumulate and multiply on its surface after brushing. Within several hours, the tooth brush bristle will be 99% free of the bacteria that may cause illness, tooth decay and gum disease. This means, every time you brush, you are using clean bristles!

Why is it important to keep your toothbrush free of microbes?

When anyone brushes their teeth, the microbes and bacteria that were in the mouth accumulate on the bristles’ surfaces. If left untreated, the total number can multiply 20x per hour causing a person to re-introduce potentially infectious bacteria back into their system. If there are several family members that have toothbrushes stationed next to each other and/or other bacteria laden surfaces nearby (ex: toilet or sink) there will inevitably be a transmission of foreign bacteria to each person’s brush – not ideal for your precious immune system. 

Good health starts in the mouth!

What this statement refers to is “oral systemic health” which is the connection between oral health and overall health. Countless studies have demonstrated a link between poor oral health and systemic disease such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, dementia, rheumatoid arthritis, and even pregnancy complications. The presence of plaque and bacteria in the mouth can cause inflammation of the gums which has been linked to contributing to high blood pressure and restriction of certain arteries and vessles. These symptoms can lead to heart attack and other cardio vascular complications.

Invest in the BEST. BRUSH. EVER!

Not only will your teeth feel like they just had a dental cleaning, but you can rest easy knowing you and your family are using clean bristles EVERY time you brush, lowering your chances of illness from your toothbrush.
