Looks like there was a study done recently on toothbrushes and how much bacteria they hold. The results showed that hollow-head brushes can contain up to 3,000 times the bacteria than solid-head, electric toothbrushes!

The study was held over three weeks and was conducted by The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) School of Dentistry.
