Dr. Lenga has experience with all periodontal and reconstructive procedures including bone regeneration and periodontal plastic surgery. He is also skilled in a variety of dental implant devices and associated procedures.

Learning Objectives

After the webinar, participants will be able to:
1. Understand the unique mechanisms of action of DentalRF technology in ToothWave.
2. Understand the special capabilities of ToothWave, as they appeared in the clinical investigation process.
3. Describe who (patient profile) are most likely to benefit from ToothWave’s capabilities, and in what way.

During the webinar, Dr. Cooperberg and Dr. Levi discuss about the use of bi-Polar Radiofrequency current in a toothbrush intended for daily oral hygiene, and its unique capability to reduce calculus, teeth stains, gingival inflammation and bleeding. They also address the laboratory and clinical trials that tested the safety and efficacy of DentalRF™, the physics and chemistry behind its mechanism of action.

CLINICAL TRIALS

CLINICAL TRIALS

ToothWave is the 1st toothbrush clinically proven to reduce existing Tartar (calculus).
Clinical trials further prove that ToothWave delivers:
• MORE STAIN REDUCTION*
• MORE REDUCTION IN GUM INFLAMMATION AND BLEEDING*
• MORE TEETH SHADE IMPROVEMENT*
* After 6 weeks, ToothWave showed a statistically significant reduction of tartar (calculus), stains, teeth shade, gum inflammation and gum bleeding compared to the control toothbrush – SmileSonic Pro Advanced Clean.

We have put ToothWave through an extensive investigative process.
Before entering the clinical phase, an in-depth laboratory and in vivo experiments were conducted.
The clinical studies included one pilot study and 4 large-scale comparative studies, all of which established the safety and efficacy of ToothWave.

Two clinical studies were performed by Salus Research Inc., located in Indiana, US. The studies were conducted according to Good Clinical Practice (GCP) guidelines as required by the regulatory authorities.
These single-blind controlled studies included a treatment group using ToothWave™, and a control group using an ordinary electric toothbrush (without DentalRF), accepted by the ADA (SmileSonic Pro Advanced Clean). The first study (N=85) measured the effect of each brush on plaque, gingivitis and calculus reduction, whilst the second study (N=84) measured the effect on whitening and stain reduction. The studies included 84 treatment sessions and 4 clinic visits over a period of 6 weeks. Treatment was defined as a timed 2 minutes of teeth brushing in a regular manner, twice a day (morning and evening) using standard fluoride toothpaste. For each patient, assessment data was collected at baseline, at 4 weeks, and at 6 weeks.

CALCULUS REDUCTION

In-Vitro studies results:

Before and after 22 DentalRF treatments of 20 min. each (without vibration) on extracted tooth (#11), showing calculus reduction.

DentalRF + Vibration

Before and after 48 DentalRF and vibration treatments of 20 min. each on extracted tooth (#35), showing calculus reduction.

DentalRF + Vibration

Before and after 25 DentalRF
and vibration treatments of
20 min. each on extracted
tooth (35#), showing calculus
reduction.

  

Before and after 22 DentalRF treatments of 20 min. each (without vibration) on extracted tooth (#11), showing calculus reduction.

DentalRF Only

Before and after 48 DentalRF and vibration treatments of 20 min. each on extracted tooth (#35), showing calculus reduction.

DentalRF + Vibration

Before and after 25 DentalRF and vibration treatments of 20 min. each on extracted tooth (35#), showing calculus reduction.

We did not see any difference in the RF effect when applied alone or when coupled with vibration. Our conclusion was that the vibration didn’t play any part in the reduction of calculus.

Large scale Clinical Study results:

The calculus score provided the most fascinating result of all, when the control naturally accumulated over 6 weeks, as seen by the pink bars, while with ToothWave they’ve reduced during this time period:

Calculus Score (VMI) is reduced in the treatment group and was increased in the control group during the test phase of the study (*p=0.009; **p=0.05).

CONCLUSION

The results from the clinical studies show that when compared to other vibrating powered toothbrush es (without DentalRF), accepted by the American Dental Association (ADA), ToothWave not only performs far better, in all tested parameters, but also reduces existing tartar (calculus) while the other vibrating powered toothbrush doesn’t.
