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.
