IntelliDent Toothbrush Shield
With Advanced Barrier Science (ABStm) Technology, IntelliDent provides Protection by Prevention for life’s everyday simple hygiene. The IntelliDent Toothbrush Shield is a breathable, quick drying shield that acts like a surgical mask for your toothbrush. It is laboratory tested, so proven as an effective barrier against surface and airborn microbes. Each shield is effective for up to 7 days. IntelliDent is a convenient and affordable solution, replacing plastic containers that trap and breed bacteria.
I travel somewhat regularly for work and I always misplace the plastic cap that you can put on your toothbrush when traveling. It never seemed to do much anyway, but it was nice to have on the toothbrush just in case. I shake my head because I really don’t know what it was supposed to be doing. Was it keeping my toothbrush dry? clean? germ free? I don’t know, it was just something I used because I thought I “needed” to. Of course, back to the fact that I cannot ever find them when I’m leaving for a trip.
I recently discovered IntelliDent Toothbrush Shields, which were developed by Susan Klinsport.
Susan founded and developed the IntelliDent Toothbrush Shield in 2008. With her extensive background in contract manufacturing and being inspired to seek a solution to protect the oral health of her family, the Toothbrush Shield was born. She collaborated with industry professionals, scientists, and laboratory experts for several years before creating this ingenious product. Additional line extensions and new products are in the works, but the theory behind IntelliDent products is the advanced barrier technology. This barrier is unique, but simply put, it provides the protection you need to maintain good oral hygiene.
I received my package of Toothbrush Shields the day before my Avengers: Age of Ultron press trip. Upon opening the package, I found that the shields are individually wrapped. Each individual package contains one breathable, quick-drying Disposable Toothbrush Shield. I followed the easy directions and placed one shield over my toothbrush head, then added it to my make-up bag for the flight to Los Angeles. Once I arrived at the hotel and emptied my bags, I kept the shield on top of my toothbrush head for the entire time. It works for 7 days so I knew the toothbrush would be protected against surface and airborne bacteria. One less thing to worry about just by using this one small item!
The IntelliDent Toothbrush Shields are also good for use at home. I’ve taken to putting them on all of our toothbrushes to help with keeping us healthy. Anything I can do to keep my family healthy and happy, makes me happy. Especially when it only takes a moment to cover the toothbrushes. The kids think it’s fun to put a cover on the toothbrushes, so it’s fun to get them involved in their oral health at a young age.
