Ionic Toothbrush may be “the most advanced toothbrush in the world”! Research studies on the Ionic Toothbrush confirm its effectiveness in removing plaque, improving gum health and relieving tooth sensitivity. In fact, clinicial study to evaluate the effectiveness of an iontophoretic toothbrush in the removal of dental plaque was undertaken by Marquette University School of Dentistry.
Unlike regular toothbrushes which try to force plaque off the teeth by mechanical friction, the IONIC brush makes the teeth let go of plaque, like turning off a magnet!
Plaque gets released even in hard to reach areas! It is clinically proven to be far more effective than a regular toothbrush and users report cleaner, whiter teeth and little or no plaque when visiting their dentist! It really works!
Actually, the whole object of brushing your teeth is to remove plaque, right? But a recent independent report showed that ELECTRIC TOOTHBRUSHES – including SONICARE – do not remove significantly more plaque than a regular manual toothbrush! Yet the Ionic Toothbrush has been clinically shown to remove 48% more plaque than a manual brush!
That’s why over 5 million have been sold in Japan, Europe and the USA! Many health-conscious consumers prefer the Ionic Toothbrush over an electric toothbrush: silent, small and ready-to-use anywhere it doesn’t need a charger or adaptor.
Everybody knows regular brushing is the first step to healthy teeth and gums. Frequent brushing removes residue from tooth surfaces and prevents decay, but in the areas of the mouth where regular bristles won?t reach, plaque deposits can build up putting you at risk for tooth decay and gum disease. But brushing with the Ionic Toothbrush actually helps teeth repel plaque, even in hard-to-reach cracks and crevices between teeth.
The Ionic Toothbrush works on the principle that every element in nature has a positive or negative charge. This is called polarity. When the polarities are opposite, the two elements cling together. That's why plaque, which has a positive charge (+), clings stubbornly to your negatively charged (-) teeth.
Ionic Toothbrush's integrated 3-Volt lithium power source temporarily reverses polarity of the tooth surface from negative (-) to positive (+), repelling the same positively-charged plaque away from the tooth surface but towards the negatively charged Ionic Toothbrush head. This makes your teeth reject plaque, even in areas that are NOT touched by its bristles!
When the Ionic Toothbrush is held in your hand and the bristles of the brush head touch your teeth in the presence of saliva or water, an imperceptible electronic circuit is created. The power source for the circuit is encased in the handle section, and covered with a metal pad. When brushing, the user must simply keep a wet finger or part of the palm in contact with the pad, and brush as usual. The continuous electron flow attracts plaque to the negative bristles for removal. This process is safe, simple and effective.
Ionic Toothbrush is actually very environmental, it allows the user to use much less toothpaste than with regular toothbrush. Reason being that Ionic Toothbrush removes plaque three-dimensionally: mechanical (via friction between bristles & teeth), chemical (via toothpaste) & ionically (as described on this page).
