Shining a light on oral health

Blue light (UVA) suppresses the harmful bacteria, in our mouths and lets the healthy bacteria survive, which leads to better smelling breath and healthier gums. It also removes plaque, the sticky film that grows on your teeth everyday: that slippery/fuzzy coating you feel when you first wake up. Our ORAL X 3 Blue light device is now available for home use.


The Science
“Technology employing blue light to improve oral ecology could be the most important advancement in maintaining periodontal health since the invention of the toothbrush.”- Dr. Goodman D.D.S., Forsythe Institute - Harvard Medical School


Research has shown that as many as 700 different types of oral bacteria may be found in dental plaque that accumulates on teeth. While some bacteria is benign or even helpful, others invade and destroy gum tissue and bone—leading to loss of teeth, and, possibly, to infection elsewhere in the body.


The more destructive bacteria are called “black-pigmented bacteria” (BPB) which have been implicated as pathogens associated with periodontitis . This bacteria accumulates black pigment organisms called porphyrins. These porphyrins are photosensitive, and, when activated by Blue (UVA) light , induce a photodynamic reaction which kills the microorganism within seconds.

 

The science is now reality with Oral “X” 3 – a Blue Light device that can be used in the comfort of your own home. With the shape similar to a small mouth guard, the device fits comfortably to accommodate the upper and lower teeth and gums.

The device uses cold light LED technology with high intensity blue light between 480-520nm through 30 specially coated optical lenses to separate harmful UV light and infrared rays. The blue light LEDs bathe gums and stimulate deep healing to reduce teeth sensitivity and improve gum health. The blue light has also been scientifically  proven to kill harmful oral bacteria which is the root cause of gum disease, gingivitis and bad breath.


The Oral “X” 3 is supplied with a rechargeable , cold light controller with an exclusive cold light chip to maintain a constant current output voltage. The 2000mAh Li battery provides long running  time and the type-c port makes charging more convenient.
