Your toothbrush cleans your teeth, but what cleans your toothbrush? A single toothbrush can harbor millions of microorganisms, which translates into harmful bacteria that thrive in the warm, moist environment of the average bathroom. VioLight stops these microorganisms dead in their track.
Independent studies prove that the patent-pending VioLight system eliminates up to 99.9% of bacteria that thrive on your toothbrush. That's millions of microscopic bugs that can cause flu, colds and other illnesses, zapped in minutes!
"The most serious threat to your everyday health may be hanging in plain sight in your bathroom." -- USA Today Health Review for April 27, 2000
Researchers have found more than 10,000,000 bacteria living on a single toothbrush. Tooth decay is caused by bacteria that can survive on toothbrushes. Viruses that cause colds, flu, and fever blisters can survive for many days on toothbrushes.
Influenza (the flu) virus, herpes simplex I, streptococci, staphylococci, yeasts, and the bacteria that cause gum disease, cavities, and even diarrhea illness can survive --some even thrive-- in high numbers on toothbrushes.
Because most people keep their toothbrushes in the bathroom, bacteria from the mouth isn't the only contaminant. Flushing a toilet propels germs from the toilet into the air, where they can land on toothbrushes. Toothbrushes are usually stored together, so contact between family members' toothbrushes can spread germs from one brush to another.
Bacteria, molds, and fungi love moist environments, like the bathroom. They also do well in the dark, so the medicine cabinet provides an ideal environment for germs to survive and even multiply.
Toothbrushes become infected some time between one week and one month after initial use. The ADA and most dentists recommend changing toothbrushes only every three to four months. Yet many people change their toothbrushes only once or twice a year.
"Even after being rinsed visibly clean, toothbrushes can remain contaminated with potentially pathogenic organisms." -- The Center for Disease Control
Numerous studies have shown ultraviolet (UV) light to be effective in killing germs on toothbrushes, including bacteria, yeasts and viruses. A study performed on the VioLight Toothbrush Sanitizer by Dr. Philip Tierno, Jr., PhD, Director Clinical Microbiology and Immunology, Associate Professor, Departments of Microbiology and Pathology, New York University Medical Center, found that the VioLight eliminated up to 99.9% of bacteria tested on toothbrushes. Another study by Bureau Veritas, a global independent testing laboratory, also found that the VioLight Toothbrush Sanitizer eliminated up to 99.9% of germs tested on toothbrushes.
