Disposable Toothbrush Helps Prevent Bacterial Infections

June 7, 2010: 03:30 AM EST
A scientist in Saudi Arabia has invented a disposable toothbrush that uses microbiology to ward off bacterial infections. Noting that toothbrushes become contaminated with bacteria and fungi after one day’s use, Dr. Eman Kamil, an assistant professor at King Abdulaziz University in Jeddah, said her invention prevents those harmful germs from entering the stomach and intestinal tract and compromising the immune system. The toothbrush can be used by anyone, but is targeted especially at people with diabetes, hepatitis, cancer and other serious illnesses. Dr. Kamil says the toothbrush is high quality and affordable, and comes with five disposable heads. “I hope to get people on all types of budgets to use this toothbrush and stay healthy,” she says.
