Keep it Clean

If there’s anything that deserves antibacterial treatment, it’s toothbrushes. They reside in bathrooms, where bacteria love to hang out. And when you’re traveling, toothbrushes can be exposed to all sorts of microorganisms. Dr. Ronald Plotka, a dentist from the Boston area, teamed with Troy Anderson to design toothbrushes that eliminate 99.9% of bacteria—naturally—within six hours, so the next time you reach for your toothbrush, you can be assured it’s clean. Mouth Watchers makes both traditional and travel toothbrushes. What’s most unique about the brushes are their silver-embedded bristles. Silver has natural antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, and at nano-size, the silver particles penetrate and destroy the cells of bacteria. When Liz Meagher told us about Mouth Watchers toothbrushes (she also discovered Rhoost child safety devices), we were won over by their antibacterial features and their unique “flossing” bristles. The outer bristles are soft and thin—10 times thinner than the bristles on ordinary toothbrushes—to gently clean teeth and get into the crevices. It’s the ideal cavity-fighter.

    I saw the toothbrush with nano silver brush technology. What I did not hear is the study that showed the nano silver was not a danger to the body. Anything you stick in your mouth sends things into your system and cells. If nano silver kills bacteria, what happens to all the good bacteria that it comes in contact with? Nano technology is great only when it is strictly controlled with the surety that it will not effect anything but that which it is made for.

    @Lori Broesamle: Lori, Thank you for your question and comments. The personal care use of silver, and nanosilver in particular, has received a fair bit of attention in recent years. While silver has been used in medical applications for centuries (e.g. with bandage wraps before penicillin, in catheters today), nanosilver has caused concern among some groups regarding its effect on the environment, in particular, water supplies, and whether "good" bacteria will be killed on the way to killing "bad" bacteria. The EPA's stance on this issue is that not enough information exists to make a judgement.

    Mouth Watchers takes these concerns seriously and has designed our toothbrush to be totally safe for the body and environment by:

    (1) Using low levels of nanosilver level and mixing it with polyester before it is heated, extruded and cut into bristles. The nanosilver is not painted on where it might be chipped off.

    (2) The elution rate of our nanosilver is exceptionally low. In a worst case laboratory test with our bristles immersed in water all day long, our bristles only elute 13.5 ppb/day of silver compared to the EPA's guidelines for drinking water (National Secondary Drinking Water Regulation) which is 840 ppb/day.

    I hope this answers your question and addresses your concerns. We thank you for your comments.

    @Judy Hamann: Judy, Our bristles are made out of polyester which have a better bending rate recovery than nylon bristles, which is what most toothbrushes are made out of. The length of life for our brushes is roughly 4 months (versus 2-3 months for other brushes), but truly depends on individual use based on your individual brushing habits (hard versus soft). You do not need to do anything special to maintain them. Thanks for the question - happy brushing!

I am more interested in the powered brush as I am used to using one - which one would you recommend - a non-powered or powered one? And my third and last question is if I need more replacement heads, other than the ones I could buy on daily grommet now, in the long run is there a way to get in touch with you guys later.. how would that work?

    @neha: Neha, Thank you for your interest in Mouth Watchers! Our brush heads do not have an indicator as to when to replace them. With a lot of personal hygiene products, it really depends on individual use when to replace them. We recommend replacing our toothbrushes and brush heads roughly every 4 months, depending on individual use (if you are a hard brusher versus a soft brusher).

    In regards to which brush I recommend - power versus manual - that is also based on individual choice. I personally prefer the manual brush and have never been a power brush user. Having said that, our power brush is awesome and we have received rave reviews! If you have been a manual brush user up until now, I would recommend starting with that and vice versa if you have been a power user. Either way, I am confident you will love our products! If Daily Grommet stops carrying the replacement heads, yes, you will be able to purchase them directly from us in the future.

    Interesting I haven't seen a response yet to the question of safety regarding the nano technology. Personally I will not knowingly use anything that uses nano technology. Yes my skin may age normally as a result of this and my kids shoes may stink after six months of wear but that is okay with me. My traditional dental hygiene routine will have to suffice, for me the risks of nano tech are not worth it.

The nano silver will not react with any fillings so no worries there! Brush away!!

    It's not hard to describe my feelings about the MouthWatchers toothbrush. I use the powered model. I have used both the Braun and Sonicare powered brushes, and they are good. But something better than MouthWatchers is going to have to come along before I will give up the MouthWatchers powered model. And service and support are simply outstanding. The fact that the brush's bristles are treated with nanosilver is very important to me. I strongly believe in the antibacterial effects of silver, properly administered. I feel much safer using this brush, and the feeling I have in my mouth after brushing is the best ever. Thank you, Dr. Plotka!

    I purchased the manual toothbrushes quite a while ago and have only gone through one set. The beauty of the product is that you DO NOT have to push hard on your toothbrush to get the benefits of excellent gum and teeth care. I was always scolded by my dentist for being too rough on my gums but the last check up was an A+++++. He said the condition of both my gums and teeth were wonderful. The plaque was almost non-existent. I like the idea of the antimicrobic action of the silver! I can't say enough about the product and I am putting in another order for both my husband and myself.

    Hello. I have Veneers and need to know if the powered version of this toothbrush is a sonic or vibrating toothbrush or just rotates without any sonic or vibrating action prior to purchasing. Years ago I used a sonic or vibrating type of toothbrush just once after getting my Veneers and the subsequent (temporary) pain that mistake caused was unforgettable.

    Dear Katherine,

    Thank you for inquiring about our Mouth Watchers Power Toothbrush. This electric toothbrush uses percussion (which means that the the brush head moves down and up) as well as osculation (which means that the brush rotates side to side) motion, allowing for a better brushing experience. It has 5,000 movement minutes and uses two AA batteries. You will find that the softness of the Mouth Watchers floss-like bristles and the electric power will be gentler on your teeth and gums than any brush you ever used before! When you brush your teeth, make sure that you are not applying too much pressure on the brush, and thus on your gum: let the electric brush do that work for you. This may help with your temporary pain that you experienced. I hope this helps ! Violaine Gillot, Operations Manager

    Hello. I have Veneers and need to know if the powered version of this toothbrush is a sonic or vibrating toothbrush or just rotates without any sonic or vibrating action prior to purchasing. Years ago I used a sonic or vibrating type of toothbrush just once after getting my Veneers and the subsequent (temporary) pain that mistake caused was unforgettable. Thank you for your time and response, Katherine

    @Katherine: I can see why you would want to be cautious. I have a message in to the Mouthwatchers Team and will let you know.

    Dear Katherine,

    Thank you for inquiring about our Mouth Watchers Power Toothbrush. This electric toothbrush uses percussion (which means that the the brush head moves down and up) as well as osculation (which means that the brush rotates side to side) motion, allowing for a better brushing experience. It has 5,000 movement minutes and uses two AA batteries. You will find that the softness of the Mouth Watchers floss-like bristles and the electric power will be gentler on your teeth and gums than any brush you ever used before! When you brush your teeth, make sure that you are not applying too much pressure on the brush, and thus on your gum: let the electric brush do that work for you. This may help with your temporary pain that you experienced. I hope this helps ! Violaine Gillot, Operations Manager
