Stu die naar het effect van de ZeroGerm TM UVtandenborstelreiniger op de inactivatie van cariogene en parodontitis veroorzakende bacterien.

(2013) Broersma, G.

In this study, the effect of the ZeroGerm ™ UV toothbrush cleaner is performed on the survival of the anaerobic bacteria Aggretibacter actinomycetemcomicans (Aa.), Porphyromonas gingivalis (Pg.), Prevotella intennedia(Pi.), Fusobacterium nucleatwn (Fn.) and aerobic bacteria Streptococcus mutans, Lactobacillus species in a toothbrush (in-vitro). For all of the bacteria mentioned above, the experiment was carried out in quadruplicate. In addition, five subjects were randomly selected to brush without toothpaste and then with toothpaste to determine the total number of surviving micro-organisms (both aerobic and anaerobic) on the toothbrush before and after the UV-treatment with the ZeroGerm™ UV cleaner (in-vivo). In both the in-vitro and in-vivo experiment, it was found that the ZeroGermTM sanitiser did have effect, but it was not always significantly different compared to the control results.
