Is Your Toothbrush Making You Sick?

The flu-bug is going around, and your immune system may not be the one to blame. Did you know your toothbrush is just as guilty to make you sick?

Our dental office in Elgin cares for your overall health.

The “Lighting Rod” for Dangerous Viruses

This is where changing your toothbrush regularly becomes vital. When a toothbrush becomes contaminated, it can carry many diseases, including:

  • Influenza
  • Bacteria from E. Coli
  • Strep Germs

What can be done? Many worldwide dentists advise to:

  • Never share your toothbrush
  • Avoid storing your toothbrush in closed spaces
  • Don’t put your toothbrush in the dishwasher and microwave (you may be surprised how many people do this)
  • Change your toothbrush every 2-3 months

Mouth Watchers Are Here!

Thanks to the clever mind of Dr. Plotka, there’s now a toothbrush that eliminates the harmful bacteria and gives your mouth an excellent dental cleaning – the Mouth Watcher toothbrush.
