Research on the IONIC toothbrush

Research studies on the IONIC toothbrush confirm its effectiveness in removing plaque, improving gum health and relieving tooth sensitivity:

A CLINCIAL STUDY TO EVALUATE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF AN IONTOPHORETIC TOOTHBRUSH IN THE REMOVAL OF DENTAL PLAQUE: Marquette University School of Dentistry

RESULTS:

• 36.17% reduction in plaque compared with only 18.56% for the control group – a difference of 48% more plaque removal.

• 51.87% improvement in gingival health

Plaque scores were determined using theTuresky-Gilmore-Glickman Index. Gingival indices were determined using the Loe Silness Gingival Inflammation Index.

PLAQUE REMOVAL EFECTIVENESS OF AN IONTOPHORETIC TOOTHBRUSH: 1993, Maki Y. ET AL., Tokyo Dental College

RESULTS:

1. Plaque removal. The IONC toothbrush was more effective than the control toothbrush according to O’Leary’s PCR (p<0.01) and PHP (p<0.05),

2. Improvements in gingivitis. The IONIC toothbrush produced better results than the control toothbrush in terms of the PMA index (p<0.05).

PILOT STUDY TO EVALUATE AN ION TOOTHBRUSH TO REMOVE PLAQUE: 1991, Bieswanger, B., DDS, Oral Health Research Institute. Indiana University School of Dentisty

RESULTS and conclusions: The selected tooth surfaces employed in the PHP index support the conclusion that the IONIC brush is superior in plaque removal to an ADA accepted brush (Butler Gum#440).

AN EFFECTIVENESS STUDY OF IONIC TOOTHBRUSH IN PLAQUE REMOVAL: 1990 Study, Tokyo Dental College

RESULTS: The most valuable results in this study were seen at the cervical region...the hardest place to clean.

EFFECT OF ION TOOTHBRUSH ON PLAQUE REMOVAL

1986, Otani, H,. ET AL., Asahi University

RESULTS: All thirteen subjects achieved higher plaque removal with the ionic toothbrush than with the ordinary toothbrush with a high statistical significance of P<0.001.

EFFECT OF ION TOOTHBRUSH ON CERVICAL HYPERSENSITIVITY

1979, Ota, N., et al.,Matsumoto Dental College

RESULTS: The clinical effect (reduced hypersensitivity) of the ion brush showed a highly significant difference (P<0.001). The reduction in sensitivity after six weeks was shown to be 60.6% in the test group and and only 25.4% in the control group.
