New York, NY, January 7th, 2015 – The PeriClean® Ultra Soft Toothbrush (www.periclean.com) was compared to a standard soft toothbrush in a new medical study. The study tested how well the Periclean® Ultra Soft Toothbrush removed plaque from teeth and gums. The aim was to give people who over-brush their teeth a safer alternative to standard toothbrushes that can damage gum tissue and tooth enamel. The study revealed that the PeriClean® Ultra Soft Toothbrush removed plaque just as effectively as the standard toothbrush. The major advantage of the PeriClean® was its extremely gentle cleaning action, which prevented injury to gum and tooth structures.
Millions of people around the world suffer from “toothbrush disease” which causes receding gums and sensitive teeth. “Toothbrush disease” stems from over-brushing with a standard toothbrush. The PeriClean® Ultra Soft Toothbrush was created by Dr. Jack Gruber, DDS, in an effort to combat gum recession and tooth sensitivity caused by over-brushing.
The study, published in the November 2014 issue of the “New York State Dental Journal” (pages 28 – 32) further noted that ‘The comparison between a conventional soft toothbrush and the PeriClean® Ultra Soft Toothbrush is significant to the oral health field because it showed us that both are equally effective in their ability to remove plaque from teeth.’ Additionally, the study noted that ‘The PeriClean® Ultra Soft Toothbrush appears to be gentler on the gingiva and may show promise in the future for preventing gingival recession.’
“The PeriClean® Ultra Soft Specialty Toothbrush is a unique tool that allows patients to brush their teeth and gums effectively,” noted Dr. Neal Seltzer, DMD, “without harming gums or abrading tooth structure.” Dr. Seltzer works with patients in his practice who have severe receding gums. After his patients began using the PeriClean® Ultra Soft Toothbrush, he further related that “We have seen clinical cases of gums growing back, as much as several millimeters in some cases of receding gums within several months after using the PeriClean®. The PeriClean® allows the gum tissue to reach its genetic potential, where other toothbrushes prevent this by constantly working against gum growth.”
