  • PURPOSE Microbial contamination of manual toothbrushes relative to their design has been documented for decades, citing concern for cross contamination and self-infection with microorganisms. A pilot study of different power toothbrushes was conducted, to compare a solid-head brush to 2 hollow-head brushes for residual contamination with commonly occurring oral microorganisms. METHODS Participants who met inclusion criteria were enrolled and brushed twice daily for 3 weeks with 1 of 3… CONTINUE READING
