Periclean, sage and gentle on gums and sensitive teeth

New Clinical Trial Shows PeriClean Ultra Soft Toothbrush Can Reduce the Risk of Gum Recession

Researchers from the College of Dental Medicine at Western University of Health Sciences recently published the results of a year-long study comparing the efficacy of the PeriClean Ultra Soft Toothbrush against a traditional soft nylon-bristle toothbrush. After 12 months of evaluating subjects with gingival recession, ranging in age from 18 to 80, the researchers concluded the PeriClean Ultra Soft Toothbrush did reduce the risk of gum recession.

Among the findings:

  • Nylon bristles (whether soft, medium or hard), found in most traditional toothbrushes, produced the most gingival damage.
  • Subjects who used the PeriClean had “much less” toothbrush damage than those using traditional nylon-bristle toothbrushes.
  • Traditional nylon-bristle toothbrushes are more likely to damage and abrade gum tissue and contribute to connective tissue loss that leads to gum recession.
  • A bristle-less brush is more suitable in preventing additional gum recession in patients with a history of aggressive tooth brushing.

The Unnamed Dental Problem

The PeriClean is a revolutionary breakthrough in oral health care, as it’s the first complete redesign of the conventional nylon bristled toothbrush in almost 80 years.  The first time you try PeriClean, you will feel how gentle it is on your gums.

Even when you brush your teeth for two minutes, twice a day with a old, standard, nylon toothbrush, you probably overlook an unnamed dental problem:

  • Your tooth enamel is eggshell-thin and your gums are paper-thin.
  • Brushing your teeth with the old, standard toothbrush breaks down the tooth enamel and wears away your gums.

Gum recession leads to bone loss and sensitivity.

  • Are YOU brushing your gums AWAY in an effort to clean them? If so, you might be causing damage to the tooth enamel and hurting the gums.

Brushing with the ultra soft PeriClean toothbrush protects your tooth enamel and helps avoid the pain of receding gums.

You can take charge of your dental health. You will BRUSH SMARTER, NOT HARDER with the ultra soft PeriClean toothbrush.

Why Does Tooth Enamel Care Matter?

Your tooth enamel protects your teeth. When the white enamel breaks down, from brushing too much or from the buildup of plaque into hard tartar, it can lead to weakened teeth, tooth decay and yellowing of the teeth. Gentle cleaning of the teeth, with the ultra soft PeriClean specialty toothbrush, will help protect the tooth enamel so you will have a whiter, brighter smile and hold on to your teeth.

Why Does Gum Care Matter?

The gums protect the bone underneath, the bone holds the teeth in place. The gums are the Skin of Your Teeth®. Because your gums are thin, they cannot withstand the abuse of too much brushing by a standard toothbrush. Receding gums will lead to the exposure of the roots of your teeth and loss of your bone. Your teeth may become sensitive to hot drinks and cold ice cream. Gum recession is often permanent and is then remedied by dental surgery. You can help avoid gum recession by brushing effectively with an ultra soft toothbrush like PeriClean.

What Does Your Dentist Use to Clean Your Teeth?

Your dentist and dental hygienist do NOT use a traditional toothbrush to clean your teeth. They use a rubber dental instrument to remove the plaque and stains on your teeth. With its rubber head, the PeriClean specialty toothbrush is similar to the polishing tool dental professionals use. The PeriClean is ultra soft, flexible and strong enough to brush away food and has been clinically proven to remove plaque from your teeth.

New York’s PIX11 Interviews Dr. Jack Gruber

Dr. Jack Gruber, Periodontist & Inventor of the PeriClean, was recently interviewed by New York’s PIX11. Dr. Gruber discussed gum recession, sensitive teeth, and how the PeriClean can help.

The PeriClean’s soft rubber bristles are designed to clean your teeth as effectively as a standard toothbrush while saving your gums from the harsh damage a standard toothbrush can cause.

New York’s PIX11 also spoke with a patient of Dr. Gruber, who discussed how the PeriClean helped her overcome bleeding gums, gum recession, and sensitive teeth.

PeriClean Ultra-Soft Toothbrush As Effective As Standard Soft Toothbrush in Removing Plaque

To put the effectiveness of the PeriClean to the test, an experiment was conducted, in which participants used the PeriClean for two weeks, after which their teeth were studied to determine the amount of plaque that remained. Following this, the participants used a traditional soft-bristled toothbrush for two weeks, after which the same study was conducted to determine the amount of plaque left over. The experiment concluded that the PeriClean and soft-bristled toothbrushes are equally effective in their ability to remove plaque from teeth.

Among the findings:

  • The PeriClean Ultra-soft Toothbrush was found to be equally effective in removing plaque compared to a traditional soft nylon-bristled toothbrush.
  • The PeriClean provided excellent flexibility to assist in minimizing force applied to teeth and gums to help in the prevention of gum recession.
