We use toothbrushes every day. Every morning when you pick up your toothbrush, you may not find anything hidden between the brushes. But toothbrushes may be more disgusting than you think.
Where do bacteria and viruses come from on toothbrushes
Any time the toothbrush in the mouth will be contaminated by oral microorganisms. Viruses and bacteria from the mouth can survive on the surface of toothbrushes for several weeks and can cause disease. Do not think that only patients can cause infection. Ordinary, healthy oral microorganisms can also cause infection. Especially when your mouth is damaged, ruptured or ulcerated, bacteria and viruses enter the body from the wound.
