When a toothbrush isn't being used, it can accumulate bacteria that can cause a number of different conditions such as bad breath, tooth decay, periodontitis, among others. Viruses, colds, and influenzas can travel and end up on your toothbrush which could make you sick. A toothbrush being wet after use naturally makes it a cradle for rapid bacteria growth among other germs.
The American Dental Association has identified toothbrushes as being a major intermediary in propagating bacteria actively. In general, oral bacteria is easily killed by brushing the teeth, however, the toothbrush plays a great role in transferring microbacteria like the vinery micrococcus and chain micrococcus into the mouth quite easily. According to recent studies, oral bacteria can be the cause of a number of different diseases including heart disease. Therefore, to observe general oral sanitation and avoid this wide array of diseases related to oral bacteria and viruses, using a toothbrush sterilizer is a must.
