Your teeth are one of the must important aspects of your life. You only get one set of teeth, so you need a great dental hygiene. Your teeth help you eat and even give you beautiful smiles. Brushing your teeth twice a day is important to keep your teeth healthy.
How clean is your toothbrush? Your toothbrush can contain up to a million microorganisms. Simply flushing the toilet can cause a bacteria to fly to 6ft away. Protecting your mouth is just as important as protecting your toothbrush from harmful bacteria.
Here are some easy ways to protect your mouth from bacteria:
Wash and rinse out your toothbrush and shake till dry before you store it
Wash toothbrush in a dilute to kill bacteria
Replace your toothbrush every 2 - 3 months
Using a IntelliDent Guard Shield
IntelliDent products are tested to be 99% effective to block harmful bacteria from contaminating your toothbrush.
The IntelliDent company offers mouth guard and toothbrush guard shields. Both products have a 99.9% effective deterrent of harmful bacteria.
I personally have been using a plastic cover my toothbrush. However, I was unaware that bacteria can use it to breed and multiply.
After learning about how unsafe the plastic guards are, I am going to continue using disposable shields. IntelleDent says they are effective up to 7 days, in which you will want to dispose and grab a new one. These shields are simple to apply to your toothbrush or your mouth guard.
