Escondido, CA—July 13, 2012 --Due to the prevalence of white spots in orthodontic patients, HydraBrush, Inc., developer of the 30 Second Smile Power Tooth Brush, has launched the Orthodontic Specific Brush Head that was designed to prevent white spots while offering automatic brushing of gums and teeth. Released in June 2012, the Orthodontic Specific Brush Head automatically attacks plaque around orthodontic brackets, providing a long-overdue solution.
“It was brought to my attention by an orthodontist that white spots are a troubling problem with orthodontic patients,” Ken Hegemann, CEO of HydraBrush, Inc. explained. “Tooth decalcification, caused by excessive plaque build-up on tooth enamel adjacent to orthodontic brackets, results in white spots that are discovered after braces are removed. The Orthodontic Specific Brush Head resolves this problem by not allowing plaque to accumulate on enamel adjacent to the dental brackets. Already, we are receiving positive reviews from orthodontists who have tested the product.” he added.
This innovative approach to home dental care provides orthodontic patients the ability to clean lingual and facial surfaces simultaneously without user dexterity. The patient simply bites into the brush head to simultaneously clean six tooth surfaces. The Ortho Specific Brush Head has unique bristle angulation that reaches the difficult areas under and adjacent to orthodontic brackets and wires. This brush head configuration automatically delivers precise brushing. Reducing user inaccuracies is a significant advantage over existing products geared toward orthodontic patients.
Additionally, several bristles are directed toward the gum line to automatically massage and stimulate gums. Often, orthodontic patients are gum-care negligent. This unique brush head ensures brushing compliance to support gingival health.
The main features of the Orthodontic Specific Brush Head (when used with the 30 Second Smile power toothbrush handle) are:
• Plaque removal around dental brackets
• Automatically massages gums and supports overall gum care while brackets are in place
• Brushes six surfaces of the teeth simultaneously
• Powered by 30 Second Smile Power Toothbrush Handle (www.hydrabrush.com/orthotown)
Providers will see a significant reduction of white spots on patients who use the Orthodontic Specific Brush Heads. The final results will be more gratifying for providers and patients alike. “Prevention is more beneficial and more effective than trying to combat white spots once they have already formed,” asserts Hegemann, “We have developed an innovative approach to white spot prevention, with confidence that both patients and providers will be satisfied.”
