Is Bacteria Living In Your Toothbrush?

Did you know that the most common bacteria found on toothbrushes are the same ones that cause plaque, cavities, gingivitis, and bad breath?

Is bacteria living in your toothbrush?


It’s a fact that more bacteria lives in the mouth, than anywhere else on the body. Of course, some of that bacteria gets on your toothbrush whenver you brush your teeth.

Most of us also keep our toothbrushes somewhere in the bathroom, where you will typically find numberous airborne bacteria.

Studies have shown that microorganisms can grow on our toothbrushes, and there is no evidience that using a toothbrush sanitizers has any effect on our health. They also don’t prvent the spread of germs from toothbrushes.

If you’re not grossed out yet (I am), it gets a little worse…

Did you also know that your toothbrushes may even have bacteria on them right out of the box?

That’s right. Toothbrushes are not required to be sold in a sterile package, which means you might be putting bacteria in your mouth the first time you ever use it.

So What Can You Do?

The answer probably isn’t to stop brushing your teeth. You just need a more advanced toothbrush.

That’s where the Norwex Toothbrush comes in.

If you use other Norwex products, or if you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know all about the benefits of silver in fighting bacteria.

The Norwex Toothbrush uses the same approach. The bristles of the toothbrush are actually covered in silver, making it antibacterial.

When the Norwex Toothbrush comes in contact with water, the silver that covers the base of the toothbrush releases actives ions that eliminate 99.9% of the bacteria this is commonly found on regular toothbrushes.

This same natural and self-sanitizing process also prevents the growth of these bacteria.

After you’re done brushing your teeth, the Norwex Toothbrush actually starts sanitizing itself as it dries.

Tests that have compared the Norwex Toothbrush to traditional toothbrushes show a significant reduction in Streptococcus Mutans, which are the main cavity-forming bacterial.
