Toothbrushes: Pathogen Timebomb
Toothbrushes are an indispensable part of every household. These devices are not only used by all members of a family but are also used often, usually as often as one eats regular meals. Unknown to many, toothbrushes are a breeding ground for millions of disease causing microorganisms that can be transferred to a person’s mouth during brushing.
A contaminated toothbrush can cause tooth decay and sicknesses like upper respiratory tract infection, influenza, cavities, gum disease and bad breath. Because they provide a warm moist environment, most toothbrushes are a perfect place for bacteria to grow in while they are not in use.
Smart Toothbrushes by Ecofam
Ecofam offers a breakthrough solution that eliminates the risk of getting your family sick with bacteria laden toothbrushes.
Ecofam Toothbrushes naturally eliminate up to 99% of bacteria on your toothbrush bristles while you are not brushing. That means that your toothbrush can self-clean after every use. Brushing with a clean toothbrush can help prevent gum disease and keep you and your family healthy.
Ecofam uses the same technology used in hospitals. Silver is widely used in the medical field as it is incorporated into wound dressings to treat external infections and is also used as an antiseptic and disinfectant in medical appliances. Using this same technology, Ecofam toothbrushes can kill many species of bacteria with its silver infused bristles. When bacteria come in contact with the silver in the bristles, it interacts with the outer membrane of the microbe which leads to its degradation and eventual death. Silver use continues to play an important role in the medical field especially with the rise of antibiotic resistant bacteria.
Ecofam toothbrushes use a patented technology which keeps the silver in the toothbrush bristles even after prolonged use. This means that there is no risk of ingesting silver that can cause any adverse effects. Silver is safe to use as recent studies (Lansdown) “show that the risk expected due to clinical exposure to silver is “minimal”, as only chronic ingestion or inhalation of silver preparations leads to an accumulation of silver in the human body.”
Ecofam toothbrushes use silver particles in its bristles that have nano sized ions. These have natural antibacterial and antifungal properties that can keep your toothbrushes clean and free from bacteria.
Ecofam Toothbrushes are earth friendly. Aside from the biodegradable handle, the silver nano particles in the bristles will stay there till they degrade. Silver nano also cannot maintain their nano scale attributes when in the environment. They usually immediately agglomerate with natural salts, minerals and other substances and lose their nano-scale properties making them safe.
