Recent clinical findings by The Dental Advisor’s John A. Molinari, Ph.D. and Peri Nelson, B.S. prove the aseptic handle on the adult and junior series toothbrushes in the PRO-SYS® oral care family are 1,500 times cleaner than other brush handles after months of use.
The unique PRO-SYS toothbrush design, three years in the making, was shown to substantially reduce bacterial contamination after prolonged use, in a study completed November 2014 by The Dental Advisor (http://www.pro-sys.com/study/).
Manual toothbrushes used for at least two months were collected from volunteers. Participants then received a new PRO-SYS toothbrush as a two-month use replacement. Dr. Molinari concluded: Far less demonstrable accumulated debris and bacteria on the handles of the PRO-SYS toothbrush specimens as compared to that of competitor manual toothbrushes.
The PRO-SYS Antimicrobial toothbrush sold with DuPont™ StaClean® bristles is clinically proven to significantly inhibit bacterial growth.
“I believe the major manufacturers of toothbrushes have slid into focusing on the wrong things: gimmicks and aesthetics,” says Richard Cohen, toothbrush developer and a Benco Dental Managing Director. “A toothbrush is not something that needs to look good – it’s a tool for cleaning plaque.” Cohen added that the unique handle is one brushers can feel confident is clean every time they use it. The Dental Advisor’s findings serve as validation.
As a follow to the original study, The Dental Advisor in its July/August edition identified PRO-SYS Tapered Toothbrush as a Clinical Problem Solver. One of the first in its category, the flagship item in the PRO-SYS brush line includes DuPont™ Tynex® Tapered filaments (from the inventor of the nylon bristle) arranged in a multi-level design. The design is intended to clean deeper in difficult-to-reach areas without sacrificing comfort; bristles clean under the gum line.
