UV Device Innovates in Oral Care

August 13, 2014

Said to kill bacteria left on toothbrush.

Every year, lives are lost because of the spread of infection.  Health professionals go through repetitive procedures to autoclave their instruments, decontaminate their treatment rooms and change loads of gloves, goggles and masks, all to practice infection control.  What measures are taken at home to continue this infection control?

Health professionals know that oral health means more than pearly white teeth and a pretty smile. They have studied and learned that the signs and symptoms of many life-threatening diseases begin in the mouth.  USA Today noted that after a few uses, the bristles of a toothbrush become "tiny little needles" that cause tiny cuts in one's tissue after each brush, microscopically cutting the soft gums of the mouth.  Harmful germs are literally injecting directly into one's bloodstream! Studies show that after rinsing a toothbrush with water, it is still heavily contaminated with germs, and even one's own germs can be very harmful, as USA Today reported in "The Most Serious Threat to Your Everyday Health."

Oral SteriClean UV Sanitizers were not only developed to kill the common cold bacteria, but, more importantly, are strong enough to kill aggressive bacteria that cause life threatening diseases. The sanitizers are listed with the FDA and are manufactured in FDA-registered facilities.  Here is how it works: once a toothbrush is placed into the sanitizer, it automatically turns on and gets to work on destroying the bacteria. When finished, it turns off automatically.
